What's new? Insight July 2018 update
What's new in Insight powered by Wonderware Online
Welcome to another installment of what's new in Insight. This month is all about improving the speed in which you can access and interpret information. So without further ado...
What’s new for July 2018?
- Visualising zones on line charts
- Creating alerts on zones
- More flexible control of dashboard layouts
Visualising zones on line charts
Following on from our June 2018 update to SmartGlance, you can now also visualise zones on your line charts in Insight powered by Wonderware Online. So whether you view content on your mobile or in a browser, you can immediately see the ranges that have been set for a tag, or set of tags. This makes it easy for even casual users to determine whether your system is operating correctly.
When plotting multiple tags on the one chart, Insight displays the zone using the tag's colour so you can quickly tell which zone applies to which tag. Of course, you can always toggle tags on, or off to tailor the display, or zoom into a particular area on the chart.
Just a reminder that zones are set for each tag using the Wonderware Online Tag Dictionary - usually by an administrator - as shown in the following video:
Creating alerts on zones
Having zones set up on all your tags can also simplify creating personalised alerts for when a tag enters or leaves its configured zone. You now have the peace-of-mind knowing that if your systems start deviating from expected state that you'll be notified - either in the browser or mobile (assuming you have the SmartGlance mobile app installed of course... and why wouldn't you given it's included in your Insight subscription!?)
More flexible control of dashboard layouts
In this update we also bring extra options on how charts can be laid out in your dashboards. This gives more control and flexibility for your dashboards displays - you can make different content areas larger - or smaller - depending on how much detail is contained in each. Just click the edit icon and use the grid to resize or reorder content, and then click save to have your dashboard updated. It is that simple.
