Tags

Tags give facilities added flexibility in how to filter information related to meters, locations and accounts on the AquaCUE Monitor page. For a tag to appear as a Monitor page filter, it must be enabled for the facility by Badger Meter personnel. Some tags can be set using the Tags drop-down menu on each Card on the Monitor page. Others are supported in the Data Exchange specification and are set using Data Exchange files.

The following is a list of supported tags, their function, where to set them and where appropriate some of the ways facilities have used them.
