Best Practices


  • Q: Can we have 2 stations with the same name?

  • A: No, if you try to use the same name on a new station, the system will give you a message stating it cannot be used. Simply re-configure the existing one using that name or give the new station an identifier. EX: Grill Expo and Grill Expo 2
