Shareable Stations

Shareable Stations make it even easier to deploy new stations to the floor. Now when you are creating a new station, you will have the option to get a shareable link and have an operator log into and set up a particular Station using a single-use link.

To get the link and instructions for the operator, simply select the “Get Shareable Link” checkbox when creating a new station, and Tulip will prompt you through the rest.
