A Pool is basically a location and can include one or several charging devices.
It can be empty - but every charging device needs to belong to a Pool.
2 different pools always have different information
All the information about where the chargers are located is defined at the Pool-level.
Here is the list of fields that need to be defined when creating a new Pool in the system:
|Basic information||Name||The name of your pool will help you identify it easily throughout the system. Later it will also be displayed as the location name in our user apps.
Give a name that tells anyone easily where this pool is located.
|Open hours||The open hours describe when the charging points are available to charge at. By default they are 24/7 - only select more specific hours if your charging points are located in a place that closes for time-to-time, at night or during weekends for example.|
|Time zone||The time zone of your pools is partly determined by the country your organisation is located in. If you work in a country with several time zones you might have to adjust this value to match the reality.|
|Location information||Location description||Besides the name, you can also add some description for the location your pool is in. It can include information about how to reach the chargers - specific entrance indications or parking levels for example.|
|Owner||The Owner is the organisation a pool belongs to. Changing the Owner of a pool might affect some of its core settings such as its tariffs or access management rules, so use with caution.|
|Address||Address of the location.|
|Postcode||Postcode of the location.|
|City||City of the location.|
|Country||The country your pool is located in will be defined according to the country your organisation is based in. For VAT and currency reasons, you need to create a separate organisation if you wish to manage or own chargers in a different country.|
|GPS coordinates||GPS coordinates of your location. You can find exact GPS coordinates by clicking on the wish location on Google Maps for example.|
