There’s a lot of powerful information in your Device List that will allow you to make important operational decisions. By displaying the information that is important to your day to day operation, you can start strategic planning for your monitored accounts.
Get the relevant data that you need at a glance in your device list. You can get this, through the organization of your view with sorting, filters or columns.
You can sort your Devices page by the columns that you have selected.
- Log into the supplier portal
- Go to the Devices tab
- Click on the field you would like to sort by
- Important Note: There are some columns that do not support the sort function
Customize the columns and data in your Device List by adding and removing the ones that matter most to you.
- Customer Name - Customer name, or Account Name
- Tank Name - If you have multiple tanks on at a location, you can label them separately
- Address - Where the tank is physically located, we use GoogleAPI for the addresses to populate. You can still add an address in that field even if it does not fully populate, it could just mean that it has not been logged by Google’s API yet.
- Long Device ID - 26 character ID unique to the device
- Device ID - Eight character ID unique to the device
- Account ID - The Account Number, or ID that you have given for your customer
- Last Reading Date - Last time the monitor sent a transmission
- Deployment Date - Date the monitor took its first transmission
- Tank Level - The percentage of propane, or fuel that is left in the tank
- Gallons - The current amount of fuel in the tank
- Ullage - Number of gallons of fuel that could be delivered to the tank, this is based on filling the tank to 80%
- Fuel Type - You can monitor both propane and oil tanks, this will allow you to see which
- Capacity - The total water capacity of the tank
- Orientation - Horizontal, or Vertical
- Status - Shipped, Deployed, Sleep

- Carrier - Which cell provider we are using
- Platform - CDMA, LTE, or WiFi
- Product Name - The name of the product installed
- Software Revision - The current software version running on your Tank Utility Monitor
- Notes - If you input data about a specific device, or location
- 30 Day Sparkline - What the tank level trend has been for the last 30 days
- Average Daily Usage (gal) - Average daily consumption in gallons
- Average Daily Usage (%) - Average daily consumption in percentage
- Estimated Fill Date - Based on the average usage calculate when to go and perform a fill (this date is when we calculate the tank will reach 20%)
- Estimated Tank Level - Based on tank usage, this is an estimation of current tank % even when we don't have a recent reading from the monitor. This can help keep track when monitors go offline or enable monitors to report less frequently and still keep an eye on tank levels
- Standard Deviation - This is a measure of how much usage a monitor has had recently. A number = 0 means there has been very little usage and the tank may need attention due to a stuck gauge. Higher numbers mean the tank has consumed a high amount or had a fill recently.
- Usage Type - The different ways that your customer uses their propane
- Signal - Current signal strength (cellular or wifi) for this monitor
- Battery - Shows you the estimated battery level for the monitor
- Back Office - See when the last Sync, or FTP file was created for an individual monitor
Customize your Device List even further by reordering the columns to fit your workflow.
Within the Column selection tool - simply drag and drop column names to be where you'd like to view them in the Device List.

When you deploy a monitor, you can denote what your customer uses their fuel for. You can use this to filter by usage type. This is a quick way to evaluate different types of usage.
Groups allow you to organize your monitors in different ways, whether it be devices that are on a certain delivery route, or different types of deliveries your customers take.
