Adding a Screen

Screens are defined for each stream type, e.g. station, meter run or prover etc. Profile will automatically use them for multiple instances of the same stream types.

For example, if you create a screen for a meter run stream in the configuration and then use that configuration for an RTU with 4 meter runs, Profile will automatically extrapolate the screen for all 4 meter runs in the RTU.

1. Open the configuration
