Creating Groups in IMS

For more detail see the full application note.

  • Different scheduling requirements – more/less water, restricted run times
Creating a Group
  1. Select Groups from your IMS home page
  2. Select New Group, give it a Name, then select Create & Manage
    • If this group defines its own separate lateral/zone, turn on the Is it a lateral slider
    • You can add a description if desired
  3. Choose whether you want to add units from a List or from a Map view

This method is best for assigning IPCs by location when you may not know their specific names/serial numbers.

    • There are options to erase the shape and start over, undo 1 point or redo 1 point.
  3. The selected IPCs can now be added to or removed from the group, by selecting Add or Remove
    • Green IPCs are in the group & light grey are not
