Configuring Dashboard Settings

A graphic (or tabular) data record of each enabled parameter is displayed on the Dashboard of the project beneath the site map. Through the Dashboard 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 hidden from sight.

To access the Dashboard Settings, click the gear icon next to the weather display.
