Searching and Filtering to find the SIMs you want to work with
You can access the SIM Management screen which allows you to manage your SIMs by clicking on the ‘SIMs’ button on the Navigation bar.
By default, you will see a list of every SIM on your base, you can then filter and search for the SIMs you are interested in.
In the quick search box, you can enter any piece of information which you want to search, for instance, you can enter all or part of a SIM number, MSISDN, or any other piece of information displayed on the screen such as custom fields. If you only enter part of the data, the results will display any information that includes that data.
If you click the Filter Button, then the filter panel will drop down. To keep the filter menu permanently in view, click the ‘V’ button next to the filter header.
There are two different types of filters;
The simple filter is limited to the most frequently used filter options.
To use the advanced filter, click the ‘Use Advanced filter’ tick box. This will show all of the available options to filter by.
You can now set the filters you want; to limit the SIMs you can see in the table. When a filter is applied the filter bar will turn green so that you know you have one or more filters enabled.
Once you have chosen the filters you would like to apply simply click ‘Go’
To clear the filters you have applied, open the filter panel and click the ‘Clear Filter’ button on the left hand side.
Pasting and Uploading Lists
The right hand side of the filter panel allows you to search for SIMs either by:
- pasting a list
- uploading a csv file
- completing a box search
Choose the required search method.
Select which identifier you plan to paste or upload. You can search by;
- SIM Number (either the Full ICCID or Scanned SIM Number which may be different)
- MSISDN (in International or Local format)
- Data Numbers (in International or Local format)
The maximum number you can paste or upload at one time is 2000.
Once you have selected the identifier you will be using, you can paste your list of data into the available box on the screen.
If using the ‘CSV Upload’ you can also select the file which contains your list, by clicking ‘Browse’;
Finally, you can complete a box search; simply enter the first and last SIM from a network box, choose the MNO that you are searching and press go.
The amount of displayed results can be customised, by changing the ‘records per page’ filter to show less or more per page.
The column order can be modified by dragging the columns into the desired order or by clicking the ‘Show/Hide columns’ button and selecting which information you require on the results.
Once the information is displayed, the columns can all be sorted into either ascending or descending order by clicking on the arrow in the column header.
