Custom Settings

Custom Settings

Custom Settings is a powerful feature that enables you to create unique visualization preferences for your end-users that goes beyond TagoRUN's default settings. After configuring your custom settings, they will appear in your end-users' Account Settings.

With this feature, you can customize preferences to fit specific needs, such as selecting preferred units for visualizing temperature, distance, and other measurements in combination with Dynamic Formulas.

How it works

To create your Custom Settings, first navigate to your Run and click on the Custom Settings tab. From there, you can configure the following fields:

      1. Name: the name of the field that will be displayed for your end-users.
      2. Type: determines the type of field that the user will interact with.
      3. Tooltip: the text that will display when the user hovers over the field.
      4. Required: if you set the field as required, the user will not be able to save without selecting a preference.
      5. Field Options: allows you to specify the options that the user can select. You must define a Value to be used with Dynamic Formulas and a Label that will be displayed for your end-users. Additionally, you can set a value as Default, which will be applied to new users. At least one option must be set as the default.

Keep in mind that the Values set in the Field Options are supposed to be unique since they are used as identifiers.
You can use a key from your Dictionary replace the text for the fields Name, Tooltip and Label in Field Options. Read more about Using Dictionaries & Multi-language.
After saving the options for a dropdown field, it's essential not to change the Value from Field Options. If you need to modify the Value or remove an option, you should update your users' preferences using the SDK or an Analysis.

Keep in mind that editing the options for a field will not automatically update the preferences that your users have already saved.

Once you have created your Custom Fields and deployed your updated RUN, your users can select their preferences by navigating to the Visualization Preferences tab on their Account page.

Configuring your Custom settings

After setting up your Custom Fields, the next crucial step is to configure your widgets to utilize Dynamic Formulas. This feature allows you to apply formulas to your Custom Fields created through Custom Settings.
