Types and Custom Types
What are types?
Every object in SquaredUp has a type. Types are usually imported when you add a plugin as new data sources often bring new types of objects (like domain controllers, tickets, projects, alerts, incidents, etc.). You can also add custom types if you've imported data from a custom plugin to give those new objects nice looking types with an icon and the singular and plural forms of the type.
How to add a custom type
In SquaredUp browse to Settings > Types
Click on Add new type.
Add your custom type by entering the following settings:
Name This name is just for you to be able to identify the type, it's not used anywhere in else SquaredUp. You can choose a name that helps you remember what this type refers to and why you created it. Type Enter the value of the type property of your objects. Icon Start typing to find suggestions for font awesome icons or use the link below the field to see a list of all icon names. Singular Object Name The singular form of the object type's name.
