Complete Update of Layout and Interface

The main difference in version 6.0 is very obvious as the layout is completely new and improved.

The Workspace Overview page gives a complete summary of the new layout.

Notably, Dashboards have been replaced by Workspaces. When upgrading a site, any saved Dashboards will be converted to Workspaces.

Workspaces are configurable pages that can contain a group of Charts, Gauges, and Dashlets.

In addition, the Navigation window was replaced by the Command Center which combines data organization with controls.

Patterns allow SCADAWatch to compile aggregate repeating trends found in measured data.

For example, running an hourly pattern on flow from the treatment plant for a month can quickly show the average 24 hour pattern of water supply used that month.

Refer to the Patterns page for more information.
