Once the graph card is selected for the new Dasboard card, many aspects of the graph can be chosen among settings that are similar to a graph profile under the Data Module. This page will guide the user in configuring a Dashboard Graph card.
This article will start by covering the sensors settings.
1 - Insert the card's name.
2 - Add the sensor you want to see on the graph.
3 - Select the colors for the lines on the graph.
4 - Select/deselect the trend line to be shown for each line.
5 - Drag to change the card size.
Once the sensors settings are selected, it's time to configure the graph's axis.
1 - Add axis will add the Right Y-Axis.
2 - Configure the Left Y-Axis (Metric and Unit), which is the standard Y-axis.
3 - Configure the Right Y-Axis' Metric and Unit.
4 - Delete the Y-axis if needed, if the Left Y-Axis is deleted, the Right Y-Axis will automatically become the Left Y-Axis.
Display brings options of how to visualize data on the graph.
1 - Scatter plot will show each reading as a point instead of connecting them as a line.
2 - Will apply a logarithmic scale to the graph.
3 - Applies maximum and minimum limits to the Y-axis of the graph.
4 - Allows filters to be applied, hiding part of the data and showing what is within the filters.
