    displaying, in a user interface presented on the display, a first user interface object that includes identifiers for at least some of the plurality of receiving electronic devices, including an identifier for the first receiving electronic device;

    in response to detecting a user selection of the identifier for the first receiving electronic device;

    displaying, in the user interface, a second user interface object that includes a representation of a portion of the wireless-power-delivery record for the first receiving electronic device; and

    detecting, via user input provided at the second user interface object, a modification of the portion of the wireless-power-delivery record, the modification defining a physical location at which the first receiving electronic device is to receive wirelessly delivered power from a wireless power transmitter, wherein the physical location corresponds to a portion of a transmission field of the wireless power transmitter; and

    in response to detecting the modification, updating the wireless-power-delivery record in accordance with the modification, wherein;

    the wireless power transmitter transmits electromagnetic (EM) waves that constructively interfere at the physical location when the first receiving electronic device is located within the physical location, andthe first receiving electronic device is powered or charged using energy from the constructively interfering EM waves.
