Comfigurator 3.12.1 introduces several new View Modes which reveals only the features that are relevant to the application, and hides other features and settings that are not needed. This is because Comfigurator has become quite powerful and complex over the years, and may be confusing to new users.
The Viewing Modes are;
Engineer Advanced - This is the full view with all features. This is the existing viewing mode
Engineer Simplified - This is a simplified mode which hides seldom used screens and features, applicable to Comfort CM9000
Automation - This hides the alarm related screens and features, applicable to LGX01 Logic Engine and UCM/Logic systems without alarm and voice
EMS (Environmental Monitoring System) - This is for the new Cytech Environmental Monitoring System application
User - This is for users which hides the engineer programming screens. This is an exiting Viewing mode
To select a Viewing Mode, go to View > Mode

Engineer Simplified Mode View Categories is shown below
The Alarms Category in Engineer Simplified Mode is shown below
The Restore and Partition fields are hidden, as they are not used as often.
Restore is set to On by default. Restore tells the dialler to dial out to SMS and CMS when the zone is restored after an alarm. Partition selects the zone to be one of 4 partitions in the alarm system. Partition is set to 0 by default.
In order to change the Restore and Partition settings for the zone, change the View Mode to Engineer Advanced. Even though the fields are hidden in Engineer simplified and other modes, the setting or parameter can be changed in Engineer Advanced.
Dial Delay and Siren Delay are hidden in Engineer Simplified Alarm Types. These are rarely used, but they can be changed in Engineer Advanced Mode
The fields Allow SMS Control, Allow SMS Arm, Allow SMS Disarm are hidden in Engineer Simplified mode. These parameters can be changed in Engineer Advanced Mode

Zone Types, NonDetector Alarms, Sign in Codes, Status Outputs, Miscellaneous Settings, Configuration Flags, Siren Types, Sound Types are hidden. Although these settings are applicable to the EMS system, the default settings are usually applicable. If these settings need to be changed, this can be done by changing the Viewing mode to Engineer Advanced. This this simplifies the programming interface
The Zone Types Parameters are the same as Engineer Advanced but default Zone Types have been redefined for Environmental Monitoring
