Have you ever wanted to be able to see more information about each dispatch on the 7 day view of the Electronic Dispatch Board (EDB)? ESC has a magnification feature that will allow you to do this in just a few simple steps.
After you log into ESC, click on the Dispatch drop-down menu, then click Setup Dispatch Boards. This will bring up the Setup Dispatch Boards window. Select the Board Name you'd like to magnify or enlarge. Near the bottom of the window you will see a box called Increment Size.
Click on the drop down and select the magnification level you would like. Higher percentages show you more information on the EDB but may require scrolling from side to side on smaller monitors to see the entire day. Feel free to use this as a reason to hit your boss up for that nice 21" flat screen monitor you've been wanting. When you are finished click Save at bottom of the window, then Exit.
Repeat this process with different settings until you find the one that is just right for you.
