New "Room" feature

I like the new Rooms field and can see how this will be very useful to me in the future.

Two things I have noticed already which would be a great improvement.

1/ Can you get the Room carried across automatically via the Hub Mesh rather than have to reenter it.

2/ Although I can set a different room for all the components of a component device (and they remain set) They are not visible in the main device list. It would be useful if they were

Thanks

What exactly do you mean? Which page/list?

These Child Devices have a field to enter the room name and it remains if I come out of and go back into the child screen but it doesn't show in the main device screen.

I hope this is a better explanation.

Just wanted to say I am enjoying the new Room view, thank you developers!

Definitely.

In current version, assigning a room to parent device does not assign it to children. Initially, only parent device could be assigned to a room; that changed a couple of minor revisions ago. Now that that is in place, assigning parent device to a room should perhaps also assign all of its children to the same room...

Maybe only children with no room already assigned... and any new children created after the parent has been set could also take on the room of their parent....

Please don't remove the ability to assign different rooms to child devices. I have many instances where child devices need to be assigned to different rooms even though they are from the same parent.

All I am trying to point out or suggest is that the room assigned to a child device should appear where I have circled in Red.

I agree with Inge_Jones the new Room View is fantastic and a great step forward.

Thanks

Exactly, I was only looking for a way to have the parents room provide some convenience, without removing the ability to assign a room to each child device.

It's nice to see that I am not the only one that prefixes devices with a 'Z' to bump them to the bottom of the list :+1:

I use $ prefix for security, _ or __ to also move them to the top. Might be unnecessary with Rooms (I hope.)
