Organization Settings

This article describes the organization-level management features under the Organization tab of the Meraki Dashboard. These features are limited to organization administrators, a network administrator does not have access to these settings.


By choosing Organization > Overview, you can see a summary of all of the networks in a particular organization. Clicking Expand on the floating network list to the right of the page will display more detailed information about each network.  The usage data at the top of the expanded network list top summarizes cumulative usage across all networks, and the map shows network locations with color-coded markers corresponding to the network list. Mouse over a network in the list and the network marker on the map is highlighted.

Please refer to our documentation for more information about the Organization Overview Page.
