Configuring Dashboard Settings

Depending on the user’s customization of a project, a graphic (or tabular) data record of one or multiple enabled parameters can be displayed on the project Dashboard. Through the Parameter Settings menu, the display unit and precision of each parameter can be set as desired. Additionally, parameters that are useful to transmit, but not important to view regularly, can be disabled.

Navigating to the Parameters Settings Option

  1. Click on the ADMIN tab and then Settings located at the top of the project dashboard.
