The options available on this page change based on whether you have selected a folder or a location in the Network Explorer tree (left panel).
Browse shows the items in the selected folder or location with the total items in a grey bar. In browse mode, a folder will not show watches or controllers by default but you can search for these items in locations within the folder.
You can only open items if you have the relevant permission. For example, you need the permission Manage folders/locations to open a folder or a location.
Limit: This view shows only the first 500 items. To locate specific items, navigate to a subfolder using the Network Explorer tree, add a search term or search for a particular item type (folders, watches, users, etc.).
If you have selected a folder and Create New..., you see these options:
Location which may contain devices, and potentially classes and performance tests. Find out more: create location
Watch, an individual monitoring task to collect a specific set of information from a given device at regular intervals. Find out more: create new watch Note: this button will only work if the folder contains at least one location
This section allows you to search for, edit and move items in Highlight starting from the folder or location you have selected in the Network Explorer tree (left panel).
Search term: enter a string of characters, for example, AB123 will find uukAB123 and xab123txy. Searches are not case-sensitive. Then click (or use the Return key).
The search term will be compared against the name, the description (if available) and the email address (for users only). You can also search on the device IP address, reference, product type and interface for watches.

Move an item to another folder (if a folder, location or user), or to another location (if a watch or user), by using drag and drop onto the Network Explorer tree. This control appears to the left of the item icon on hover.
Alternatively click the clipboard on the right of any line to temporarily store the item. Then use Network Explorer to navigate to the new folder and click on the item in the clipboard to complete the move. If an item in the clipboard is not to be moved, click to clear it. The item remains in its original position.
