New Device List (beta) in Dashboard

As some of you have noticed, we’ve been working on a new version of the device list page in Dashboard. Our goal with the new device list is to make it easier for you to get the information you need about the devices in your network. Here are some of the most prominent features of the new device list:

– Icons that make it easy to see, at-a-glance, whether a device is a Meraki Mini, Meraki Indoor, or Meraki Outdoor, whether it is online or offline, and whether it’s functioning as a gateway or repeater

– The ability to filter the list by hardware type, device status, role, and usage (bytes transferred)

– A search box to find devices by name or MAC address

– Richer data in the device details view, including current and historical routing information

We’ve found these features valuable in managing our own network (Free the Net), and we hope they’ll be useful for you as well. Give it a try, and let us know how it works for you by using the “I wish this page would…” link at the bottom of the page.

Many thanks to our early-beta testers, who provided invaluable feedback to improve the new device list. Also, we’re still working out some issues with Internet Explorer 6, so you may want to try the beta device list in a more recent browser like Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox.
