This KB Article is designed to demonstrate the steps a Live Optics user (End User, Dell User, and Channel Partner/OEM User) should take to create a project with multiple collector runs.

Step 1:  Login to Live Optics with your credentials and access your profile

Access the Live Optics portal ( and login with your account credentials.

If you have never logged into Live Optics before, go to r and request your account be created or contact your Dell Sales Team and request they register you to the Live Optics portal.


Step 2:  Click View Collector Runs button on DPACK dashboard

To search collector runs associated with a Live Optics account, click the View Collector Runs button on the Live Optics dashboard.  This will allow a Live Optics user to review all of their collector runs.




Step 3:  Add collector runs to action group

A “Search Collector Run” window will appear at the top with various search options including account name, email address, data range and other advance options.  After entering the appropriate search limits then select “Search” button. 




The results will be displayed below where you will be able to select the specific collector run that you want to include in your project. 





Scroll down in Collector Runs search page until the list of associated collector runs is shown.  For all of the Live Optics collector runs that are to be assigned to the project being created, click “Add to New Project”  from the pull-down menu
