Getting Started

Everything you need to know to get started with Formant.

    Running commands

    A command is a directive to the device to perform a specific task. Commands are available via a drop-down on the device channel. 

    To run a command, click on the Command drop-down menu

    Click on one of the commands from the drop-down menu. If the command prompts you, enter any necessary parameters. Parameters for a command will depend upon the nature of the specific command. Talk to your administrator if you do not know what the parameter should be. 

    Don't see the command in drop down?

    The command needs to be configured by an administrator on the Commands page for it to appear on the device channels.

    Once finalized, click Run Command.


    The command will be queued up to be sent to the device. If the device is offline, the command will stay in the queue until it comes online. You can view the status of your command on the timeline or on the Events page.
