Creating a dashboard

A Dashboard is where you create the readings and graphics to display the information that is relevant to you. They are like a blank canvas where you control how you visualize your data.

Dashboards are very powerful when combined with real-time datafiles. As datafiles are updated with new data, all readings and graphics update automatically. There is no limit to the number of dashboards you can create.

To create a dashboard:

  1. Click on the
    button beside the heading
    on the top left side of the menu.

On a dashboard you can create two types of visuals: readings and graphics.

Tip: Click and drag on any reading or graphic to place it anywhere on your dashboard.


Readings are a visual display of the last measurement from a specific column from a datafile. They are specifially designed to display real-time data, but work with any datafile.

Graphics are, well, graphs. They are diagrams which show the relationship between two (or three) variables. Each graphic can contain a primary X axis, a primary Y axis, and secondary Y axis.
