In this week’s Tip Tuesday, we will cover our Traffic Signals tool. The Traffic Signals tool is an expansion of last week’s post on our Sign Support tool. You may have noticed last week that the Sign Support dashboard includes more tabs than just signs – it also includes Light Fixtures and Traffic Signals. This is because a “Sign Support” is really just a “Support” for many different features. Future enhancements will clarify this terminology and workflow, but for now Traffic Signals are added to a Sign Support.
In order to add traffic signals to your map, you need to select a support feature on the map, or create one using the Add Sign Support tool. For this exercise we will select a Sign Support feature that is already located in the map. Use your cursor to select your target feature, and then click “Details” in your feature’s pop-up window.
After clicking “Details,” a new window will open revealing your features. Navigate to the “Traffic Signals” tab located in the middle of the dashboard on the left hand side. Click on the “Traffic Signals” tab to access the tool.
If there are no current traffic signals attached to your sign support feature, you will see a message stating: “No Attached Signals to this Support.” To attach traffic signals to the feature, click the “Add” button.
Clicking “Add” opens a dashboard containing a series of fields that allow users to input detailed information about a particular traffic signal.
Populate the fields that pertain to your traffic signal. Once you are satisfied with the information, click “Submit” to attach the Traffic Signal information to your Sign Support feature.
Once the information is submitted successfully, your new Traffic Signal can be viewed under the Traffic Signals tab inside of the main Support dashboard. If you’d like to make any changes to your traffic signal, add additional traffic signals, or delete the traffic signal all together, click the “Edit,” “Add,” or “Delete This Signal” buttons located beneath your Traffic Signal dashboard. If you are satisfied with the current information added, click “Close” to take you back to the map.
Thank you for tuning into this week’s Tip Tuesday. We hope you have a great week!
