Report Components

  • Date Range – plots data against time with full flexibility of the sample period.
  • Contribution – compares values for a configurable period, as either a pie chart or a column chart.
  • Correlation – identifies how one point influences others using a scatter or column/line diagram.
  • Profile – compares data from different time periods to identify patterns and anomalies.
  • Periodic - compares multiple periods of time to observe changes in behavior and their impact.
  • Ranking – helps you analyze the highest and lowest values within a data set, such as the top 10 hottest/coldest rooms or top 10 pieces of equipment with the greatest demand for electricity.
  • Raw Data – displays a table of raw timestamps and values for a selected log over a configurable date range.
  • Number Editor – provides an interactive control for adjusting a number value in a report (e.g. change the price of energy and see the resulting monthly cost impact).
  • Text – opens a formatted text box to be entered using a WYSIWYG text editor. Adjust color, size, alignment, and style of font, and embed links to other reports or any webpage.
  • Image – allows a .gif, .jpg, or .png image to be uploaded into the report (e.g. company logo). Images are scaled to fit, preserving aspect ratio, and centered within the component boundaries.
