Once you've created an account, you'll be greeted with the YachtBot dashboard. Think of this as the command center for everything YachtBot.


From the dashboard, you can:

  • Create and edit race sessions
  • Add and share tracking devices that you own
  • Manage your YachtBot contacts.


Before we get in to the details of race creation and devices, here is a quick look around your dashboard:



Navigation

Navigation is via the left hand menu. There are three major sections; Races, Devices, and Contacts.


Races 

Shows you all of the race sessions that you have defined. For more information on what race sessions are see Creating YachtBot race sessions

You can filter the view of races by whether they are owned by or shared to you (for more information on sharing races see Sharing YachtBot race sessions), by selecting the appropriate tab. Alternatively, if looking for a particular race, select the 'All' tab and use the search box in the top right.


Devices

Lists all of the physical tracking hardware that you own, or have shared access to (see Sharing YachtBot devices for more information on device sharing). This may be a combination of Mobile phones running the YachtBot app, or a collection of dedicated YachtBot hardware from the YachtBot product family. For more information on managing devices, see Managing YachtBot devices.

You can filter the view of devices by whether they are owned by or shared to you, by selecting the appropriate tab. Alternatively, if looking for a particular device, select the 'All' tab and use the search box in the top right.


Contacts

Gives you control of other YachtBot accounts that you have connected with. This is useful for sharing devices with other accounts.

For more information on YachtBot contacts, see Understanding YachtBot contacts.
