Sign up & Sign in

Sign up


By following this link www.realviewnow.net, the user navigates to the Realview NOW homepage.

After clicking the logo the user needs to choose a preferred language, with the default one being English. By clicking the down arrow, a drop-down menu appears with all the supported languages, with the current available being English, German, Bulgarian and Greek.

After choosing the desired language, the user clicks on the “Update” button to apply the selection and moves on to create an account. To create an account, the user needs to click the “Sign up” button, fill all the necessary fields (Email, Password, Confirm Password) and also solve the Captcha to proceed.




After clicking the “Sign up” button that’s mentioned in the image above, the user receives a verification code via Email. This verification code must be filled in the next field in order to continue with the account creation. Once again, the user solves the Captcha and clicks on the “Verify Code” button.

For the final step, the user needs to scan a QR code with his/her mobile device using an Authenticator App, like “Google Authenticator”, “Authy” etc. and enter the code in the field to verify the TOTP (Time-based one-time password).

Sign in


The procedure for the user to Sign in, is much simpler as he/she just needs to enter the email that was used for the Sign up and the password.

After solving the Captcha and clicking the “Sign in” button, the user needs to fill the TOTP code from the Authenticator App that he/she previously used, and click “OK”.


 


Getting started


After successfully signing in, the user needs to add a Device/Receiver by clicking the corresponding button to set up the Dashboard.


 

A window with all the available Receiver Providers appears, so the user can choose which one he/she wants to integrate.

After choosing a Receiver, the user must enter the appropriate “PIN/Identifier” and “Password” and click on the “Authenticate” button.  

Finally, when the integration is done, a new window appears for the user to enter his/her Name and Username to finish the profile setup.


Tutorial


After finishing with the profile setup, the user is presented with a quick tutorial of the basics with demo data, starting with the Dashboard Map. The tutorial can be skipped by clicking “X” or continued by clicking “Next” on the tutorial card that appears.

Here is a quick overview of the tutorial.

Dashboard


As mentioned previously at the tutorial section, the Dashboard displays the users’ account overview. After integrating a Device/Receiver, its latest location will be present in the “Devices Latest Locations” window and the user can toggle a heatmap from the corresponding switch for each of the devices.

The Dashboard also displays the latest alerts with detailed information, about the “Service” that gave the specific alert, the “Device” used, the “Type” of the alert and lastly the date and time that the alert was “Received”.

Furthermore, the corresponding button provides the user with the exact location of this alert when it was triggered, and based on the Integration Device used, in this example iAlert Plus an “Extra” voice message is received from the moment of the alert.


Alerts


The Alerts tab is specifically designed to store all of the users’ alerts in detail, as mentioned before with the necessary fields and a status indication marking it as “Seen / Not Seen”. Also, it allows the user to filter them by “Service” or by “Device Account” and customize the length of the current page by selecting the desired rows per page.

By expanding each alert, besides the pinpoint location, the user also has the option to get a transcription of the voice message if there is one.


Integrations


The Integrations tab is vital for the functionality of Realview NOW, as it allows the user to add his/her Devices/Receivers, keeping them grouped in one place and easy to monitor. It provides details for each device, such as “Device Account”, “Service”, a status indicator showing if the device is “Active / Not Active” and lastly the datetime of Expiration for the PIN.

By clicking the 3 dots the user has two options:​

  •    Share Device
  •    Remove Integration

If the user wants to share the device, he/she needs to provide the Email of the recipient’s user and click on the “Send share request” button.

By clicking the “Latest Alerts” button, the user can get a heatmap for the latest alerts of each device, as well as the “ID”, “Code” and the datetime of when the alert was received.


 

Reports


The Reports tab is responsible for creating a report in 3 simple steps:

 

Step 1 – Select Devices


The user can select one or multiple of his/her devices, by ticking the check box to include it in the report, and then click “Next”.

Step 2 – Select Type


In this step the user is presented with a list of the devices that were chosen, and a drop-down menu to select the type of report that he/she wants to create. After that, clicking “Next” will lead the user to the third and final step.

Step 3 – Export


All that’s left for the final step is to download the report. The report is saved as a “.csv” file locally to the users’ PC.


Profile


The profile tab gives the user the ability to edit basic information of the account. It consists of three cards, the Account Overview, the Profile Image and the info About our company.

 

In the Account Overview card, the user can edit the UsernameName and the Display Language by clicking the corresponding “Edit” button.

The user then types the new Username for example and clicks on “Update”, to save the change.

The procedure of editing the Display Language is the same as the one the user did before creating the account. 


For the profile image, the user has an option to either upload a custom one from his/her device or PC, by clicking the “Choose File” button, finding and selecting the desired image and then clicking on the “Upload” button to save the change,

or to choose one from the existing Animal Icons, by clicking the “Change” button and then selecting the desired one.  

The About card has a detailed view of our Privacy Policy, as well as a contact Email. For more information about contacting us, please see the Support section.

 

Lastly, the Profile icon is always visible on the top right corner of each tab, and when clicked, a menu appears which gives the user the ability to navigate to the profile section or to “Log out” from the account.
