Site Settings: For MVE on Metasys UI, you can use Site Settings to configure Metasys system preferences that are supported for MVE sites. When you make changes to the Site Settings using MVE on Metasys UI, you are prompted for MVE Validation if the site object requires an MVE electronic signature and/or MVE annotation. The functionality of the Site Settings feature for an MVE site is similar to a non-MVE site with any differences noted below. Refer to Metasys System Preferences and Site Settings for more information.
  • All settings on the Display tab are the same for both MVE and non-MVE sites.
  • The Alarm tab includes the Enable Alarm Monitor setting for only non-MVE sites. The other settings on the Alarm tab are available for both MVE and non-MVE sites.

Space Authorization: The Space Authorization feature for MVE on Metasys UI provides the same functionality on an MVE site as for an non-MVE site. Refer to Space Authorization for more information. When you make changes to the space authorization for one or more users, you are prompted for MVE validation if an MVE annotation and/or electronic signature is required for the site object. The MVE annotation and/or MVE electronic signature are associated with the audit that is generated when you save the space authorization changes.
