Regions and groups are how the call groups are setup inside RealWear Connect. A region can be specific to a user. If a user is assigned a region they will only see the call groups in that region (and the Global region)
If all call groups are assigned the ‘global region’ these can be seen by all users.
You do not have to use regions. You can place all groups in the Global region.
Below is a typical Region and contact group setup, you can see there are 3 additional regions to the GLOBAL region, these are AMER, APJ, EMEA.
There are then four contact groups APJ Support, EMEA Support, Global Support, Tech Support. These are assigned to different regions.
Adding a new region
Click the Add Region button and type into the top row the name of the region, click off the box to save it
