evalink talos
Features
  • Added support for dedicated "User" fields on all alarms, when talos detects a user id being sent in an alarm it will now store it in the user field, which can be queried when looking up alarms
  • Added a new advanced alarm option to automatically clear the zone field when the zone information represents a "user" id in the original alarm to have a more clear distinction between users and zones
  • The Vanderbilt SPC Receiver now allows changing the mode for all zones individually even if they aren't in an alarm state
  • Operators now get a popup when they're already actively working on an alarm, and get a new workflow assigned by a supervisor

Improvements
  • SPC + Galaxy panel passwords can now be revealed with a password visibility toggle
