  1. If you do not want to define spaces and equipment for a field device, delete its row from the spreadsheet.
  2. Enter space and equipment information for the controllers. You must complete the columns included in the table below. Do not modify the information in any other columns. For a full description of columns in the Rapid Archive Schedule, see Table 1.
    Note: Each row in the spreadsheet represents a pairing of a field device and a piece of equipment. If a field device controls multiple equipment, then that field device is listed in multiple rows: once for each piece of equipment that it controls.

    Enhancement Requirements and Description

    Space Information



    Enter the full Spaces location for the device to be added to ensure proper Spaces tree auto-creation. For example, BE Headquarters/Campus 507/Building 9/Floor 2 creates the four space parent hierarchy levels BE Headquarters, Campus 507, Building 9, and Floor 2.

    This column populates the Spaces tree information in SCT.

    Leaf Space (for example, Room)


    Enter the Leaf Space associated with the Site/ Building/Floor hierarchy that is associated to the Equipment being created.

    To define multiple spaces, enter the space names separated by double ampersand characters. For example, to configure the controller to serve both the Mens Bath space and the Womens Bath space, enter Mens Bath && Womens Bath.

    All Items / Equipment Tree Information

    Equipment Name Yes

    Enter the field device name as you want it to display in the Metasys UI's Equipment views.

    If there is a definition for the equipment in the archive, this cell contains the asterisk character. If you import this row of data, you do not create new equipment.

    Served By Equipment Name

    Yes (optional)

    Enter the exact name of the pre-existing device serving your controller.

    To define multiple devices, enter the device names separated by double ampersand characters.

    This column populates the Served By relationship in the Rapid Archive Wizard.


    The device serving your controller must already exist in the SCT archive. If the device does not exist, the Rapid Archive Wizard does not create the serving relationship.

    The SCT finds the serving equipment based on their Name. Set a unique name for equipment in order to prevent unwanted matches. For information on renaming multiple pieces of equipment at the same time, see Updating Object Labels.
