The new Operator charts allow you to easily and quickly create charts that support your way of working. The new charts are based on the concept of making a chart only once, and using the correct compartment or object depending on where the chart is used.
- After creating a chart once, easily use it on many different locations
- Easily manage color and axis settings to customize your chart
- Open multiple charts in a row using tabs, allowing you to quickly analyse multiple groups of data points
Just go to any page in Operator where you would usually find a chart, like a compartment on the Ventilation page, and select ‘Create new chart’.
Pick a name for your chart. A tip: keep it generic (like ‘Ventilation chart’), because this chart will be used on multiple locations. Using the search bar, find some data points you’d like to see in your chart.
Select ‘Create chart’ to confirm your selection. Don’t worry about being complete at this point because you can add data points later by going to the ‘Setup’ tab. After confirming, you have just created your first chart! Operator will automatically open the same chart on all similar pages. Operator will also use the correct compartment depending on where the chart is used.
Adding data points
If, for example, greenhouse temperature is something you’d like to see in your chart, you select it when creating your chart:
After that, the greenhouse temperature of the compartment page that you are on will show up in your chart:
Another advantage of the new charts is the improved ability to customize data points. You can easily change the line color and Y-axis scale in the setup of the chart. This allows you to create a chart that looks exactly the way you want it to look!
Another major addition to the charts is the ability to open multiple charts in a row using tabs, allowing you to quickly analyse multiple groups of data points. So instead of putting 20 lines in a chart and toggling groups of lines on and off, you create these separate groups in separate tabs.
Editing dashboards just got easier! When selecting ‘Edit dashboard’ from one of your existing dashboards, you can do your editing on the widgets and cells instead of in the top bar. This allows for easy editing of colors, width, icons and labels.
On top of that, we’ve added the ability to add hyperlinks to your dashboard. This way, you can easily navigate to specific locations within Operator directly from your dashboard. You can add a hyperlink to any label text by clicking on it in ‘Edit’ mode.
Exporting chart data
Do you analyze your climate data in Excel? Or do you want to be able to analyze climate data over longer periods of time? In Connext and Compass Operator, you are now able to export chart data and download it as a CSV file that easily converts to an Excel workbook for further analysis. You can find the export button from now on in the top right corner of any chart!
