Signals on Radars

Signals do not appear on Radars. Nonetheless, it's recommended to choose values for Position on Radar because it improves positioning suggestions for linked findings.

Signals in Network

Signals do not appear in the Network as bubbles. However, FIBRES indicates how many Signals are linked to another finding. The thicker the border around a bubble, the more Signals are linked to it.
