Confirm Permit

After a Permit link has been clicked a dialog will popup to confirm the permit. This dialog also has two quick action items.

Group: The first drop down will place the Satellite in a group (it's possible to have thousands of satellites, so grouping becomes important for understanding).

SWO: A Satellite Work Order is a statement of work. For example an SWO could contain instructions to perform a Speed test every 5 minutes and a VoIP test every 10 minutes. The drop down will auto assign an SWO to all selected Satellites at the time of the Permit.
