Overview

Alloy includes a variety of different ways to select and view item details. You can view items with geometry (e.g. jobs and assets) in layers overlaid on the map. Items without geometry (e.g. lookup options and budgets) can be located using modules (cards) or through the search panel.

Viewing an item

All items can be found using the search panel. When you select the item from the search panel you can view the details of the selected item in the Item details panel.
