Good day all, When we create receptacles modeled at the cage level and connect our rack strips to them... we loose granularity on the panel schedules in regards to which rack is fed. All we get in this case is the receptacle is feeding something in the cage.
This becomes an issue when our electricians (some of which do not have access to DCO) are out on the raised floor and need to investigate tripped breakers. The expectation is they would pull the break schedule located within the PDU and determine where to go next... ie, see that the circuit is feeding a specific rack, walk there and put eyes on it to confirm the outage.
What we would like to see is an update to the panel schedule report... which includes both cage and rack detail.

Could you post screen shots of the "Properties - Power Dependancy" page for a cage and the "Power Dependancy" tab for a rack in the cage. Examples below
