Chart widgets allow you display a permanent chart of one or more sensor channels on your Dashboard.

Adding a Chart Widget

1. Click on the blue Add Widget button. 

2. A menu will appear with the various tile options. Select Chart Widget from the list.

3. Click on the 'Add Channel' button to add another channel of data to be displayed in that tile. 

4. Click 'Save'.

Note: you can't add a tile if the team you belong to doesn't have permission to do so.

Chart Widget Options

You can display your data using a variety of graphical options. Click on the 'What chart should I choose button' for guidelines on selecting the most relevant chart type for your data.

Click on the 'Add Channel' button to add your first channel of data. Using the form fields, fill in the data that you would like to display by choosing the installation, module, and sensor channel that you would like to display. You can choose the type of chart you'd like to display, the category section into which you'd like to place the tile, and also edit the label of the tile if you want it different than the default label.

The option titled Display channels from the selected basic tiles in this category allows you to display data in this fixed chart similar to how data would display in the default chart at the bottom of the Dashboard. Only basic tiles selected in the same category will display on this chart.

Click 'Thresholds' to set lower and upper warning limits for display purposes and notifications. If you add thresholds for one channel of data on the graph those thresholds will display for all data in the graph; there's no need to add thresholds for additional channels.

If you select the same time window for both the 'Load data for' and 'Zoom' fields then no navigation bar will appear. Otherwise, you can select different ranges of data within your chart.

Aggregation

If you select a time period from the Aggregation Period menu, you can add an aggregation function to each of your data channels. This function allows you to convert/transform your data channel using a mathematical function. For example, the Period Delta function allows you to take the difference between readings for the selected aggregation period. One use case where this is relevant is a pulse counter for a water meter. By selecting an aggregation period of 1 Day, a data channel that is keeping track of the total consumption, and the Period Delta function, you'll be able to view daily water consumption.
