Access

The Dashlet tab of the Command Center contains a table of all saved Dashlets. It serves as a hub from where any Dashlet can be edited/deleted and new Dashlets can be created.

Feature

Description

Filter by Group

Dashlets can be saved in groups for easier organization (e.g. save all tank-related dashlets together in a group). Selecting a group will display only dashlets within that group.

Search

Begin typing in the Search box to automatically filter Dashlets with names that contain entered text.

Create New Dashlet

Click the  tile to create a new Dashlet from scratch.

Edit Dashlets

Use the  buttons to modify existing Dashlets.

Add Dashlet to Workspace

Click the button on any Dashlet to add it to the current Workspace.

Dashlet specific icons

 - Downloads the data associated with the dashlet in .XLS format.

 - Refreshes the data associated with the dashlet.

 - Opens up the Edit Dashlet window to view/modify its properties.

- Opens the dashlet window in full screen mode.

- Closes the dashlet window.

Design

Whenever a new Dashlet is created or an existing Dashlet is edited, the New/Edit Dashlet window will pop up which controls all of the saved settings for Dashlets.

Optional drop-down menu to assign the Dashlet to an existing Dashlet Group.

Dashlet Type

Drop-down menu to select the type of Dashlet. Examples can be found for each type on the Dashlets overview page.

Data Source

Drop-down menu to select a sensor or group of sensors to be the source of data for the Dashlet.

Note: By default, Info360 shows the first 1000 sensor listing. To show search results beyond the first 1000, enter a keyword and then click the search icon (indicated by the red search icon ).

Type-Specific Fields

The remaining window fields dynamically adjust depending on the Dashlet Type selected. Please expand the desired Dashlet Type option below for information specific to each window format.

Dashlet Types

The following Dashlet types are available:

Chart

 More information about this feature

Displays a timeseries of the selected sensor or group of sensors.

Field

Description

Chart Type

Drop-down menu to select the chart as a Line, Bar, Area, Pie, or Doughnut style.

Chart Color

Click in the field to open the Color Selection tool. This color is applied to the primary data series.

Hide X Axis

When checked, X axis labels will be hidden.

Sensor Type

Optional drop-down menu to filter a certain type of sensor for plotting. This field is only used if the Data Source is a group of sensors.

Expression

Enables the user to apply any function in Info360 to the sensor data. Clicking the   icon will access the Analytical Functions window.

Data Interval

Drop-down menu to specify the data interval used.

Group By Sensor ID

Option to group data by sensor ID. This is only available if the Data Source is a group of sensors.

Group Data By

Drop-down menu to specify a time interval grouping used to process and plot data. Grouping can be omitted by selecting None.

Apply Function to Each Group

Drop-down menu to apply a pre-set function to the data in each group (sensors or time-grouping).
If the Group Data By field is populated, the function will be applied to the time grouping. Otherwise if the Group By Sensor ID box is checked, then the function will be applied to all data from each sensor (e.g. the max value from each sensor).

Time Range

The time range for the chart can be specified using one of the two options:

  • Date Range – Sets fixed start and end times for the plotted series.
  • Days Offset – Sets the time range to automatically plot the most recent data with the Days Offset field specifying the number of days before the current time to begin plotting.

Display Unit

This unit will be displayed in the y-axis label for bar or line charts if a function is applied.

Reference Dashlets

Opens a drop-down menu of compatible Dashlets to be plotted on top of the primary Dashlet.

Use Main Y Axis for Reference Dashlets

When checked, any Reference Dashlets will be plotted using the same Y axis as the primary Dashlet. Otherwise, a new Y axis will be added to the right side for each Reference Dashlet.

Table
