Contacts menu icon

Contacts are a key component for Nanospark: CNC Machine Monitor and we’ve made provision for you to manage your contacts within the app.

When you purchase your Nanospark: CNC Machine Monitor we invite you to send us a list of the contacts in your organization that will be receiving reports and notifications. We’ll populate your monitor(s) with those contacts so you can get right to setting up events. At some point though, you’ll likely need to edit a contact or add a new one- here’s how you’d do it.
