1. Update "Thermometer 2" to version "2"

  1. Open the "Information" section in the "Thing: Thermometer 2" tab
  2. Click "Update" to open the "Update Thing" dialog
  3. Select "2" in the drop-down menu of "Upgrade to version"

Any "thing" object which originated from a old template version on GadgetKeeper can easily be updated to the latest version by following this procedure

the "thing" object can be updated only if it has a template name and version number already shown in its "Information" section ("thing" was created from a template or serial number)

If the "Detach" button is clicked in the "Information" section for any "thing" created from a template, the "thing" is disabled from any further updates
