A dashboard is where you place your widgets to visualize and interact with data, all in real-time. Dashboards can also be shared with end-users that will access your application using TagoRUN.
All your dashboards are listed on the sidebar of the screen. On the top right you will find the Edit Dashboard menu. From there you will have access to other dashboard functionalities such as rename, share, distribute, duplicate, and delete.
There are two types of dashboards:
- Normal: simply create a dashboard for pre-selected devices and variables.
- Blueprint: create dashboards by associating tags to scale up your application. One single dashboard can be used with multiple devices and users.
To create a new dashboard, just click on the button Dashboards, then + on the top right, select the type of dashboard, enter a name to your new dashboard and click on Save.
There is a limit of 100 widgets per dashboard
Each dashboard will be built by adding widgets on it. Widgets use variables to display data, you should edit the Data From field for it.
1. 'Data From' Field
This field allows you to set the device and variable that will be used in this widget.
This field is dependent on the type of dashboard you are using; the difference is explained below.
1.1 'Data From' for Normal Dashboards
From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, select one device from your list of devices and the variable that contains the data.
1.2 'Data From' for Blueprint Dashboards
From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, add the Blueprint device and input the name of the variable that contains the information.
When using a Blueprint dashboard, the field Variable will not list variables to be picked because it doesn't know the devices linked to your Blueprint Device.
You can add icons to your dashboard, making it look just the way that you want it.
You can also edit the background color of the dashboards, or add images and animations. Click on the clog icon to edit the configurations inside the 'General information' tab.
Although video formats are not accepted, you can upload animations using the .gif format as shown below. Images can be uploaded into our Files.
