DataSight Version 3.6 Released
We continue to enhance DataSight with the release of Version 3.6. New features include the introduction of DataSight Dashboards, updates to Summary Reports, as well as bug fixes. Please contact us if you require a detailed version history.
DataSight Dashboards allow you to select and display Saved Views in a configurable and dock-able Dashboard Panel. Dashboards are useful when you wish to review, at a glance, specific indicators that you are monitoring within your database. Dashboards should be dynamic, and thus used to preferentially display the most recent data in the database.
There are two types of Dashboards provided within DataSight:
- Public Dashboard – Available to all Users within your database. Once designed, the Public Dashboard replaces the Welcome screen when DataSight is first opened.
- User Dashboard – Available only to the specific User logged in to the database and is unique to each User.
Only one Public Dashboard and one User Dashboard can be open in the Main Panel at any time.
By default, Dashboards are disabled for all Users within your DataSight database. Access to the Dashboards is made available by enabling the appropriate (Public Dashboard / User Dashboard) Security Permissions for the User Account or Group.
Dashboards can be set to automatically refresh the displayed data. You can control the frequency at which this occurs within the DataSight Options menu.
For displaying the most recent data, it is recommended that the Saved Views you wish to use within your Dashboard utilise the additional Date & Time descriptors detailed in the Filtering by Date and Time topic in the DataSight Help Guide. For example, if you wanted to use a Saved View Chart for data over the last 20 minutes, you would use the [Minute – Last Minute(s)] Equals 20 additional descriptor in the Filter Panel for that Saved View.
A new Summary Report named Operational Days has been added, allowing you to identify the number of operational days for a Variable within a selected time period.
The Summary Report named Operational Period has been renamed to Data Recovery, better highlighting its usage in identifying the percentage of data recovery during the selected time period.
