Selecting Nodes in the Workspaces Tree

The Workspaces Tree displays all the Workspaces and associated content you have access to. Each item in this menu is called a Node. The highlighted item is referred to as the Selected Node.

Most Nodes are hierarchical and may also contain Nodes themselves. The Workspaces label is the best example of this as its referred to as the Base Node and contains all the Workspace Nodes.

If you have access to more than one Workspace you may notice some of the Workspaces are GRAYED out when you first login. Select the Workspace to load its assets.

Example Workspaces Tree showing hierarchy

Change the Selected Node by clicking or touching on another Node. You will notice that container Nodes will automatically expand and collapse to show and hide their contained Nodes on selection.

Selecting a Node focuses your View. Only the selected Node and the Nodes it contains will be available in the Content Area.

You can easily show all content by selecting the Base Node.

Note

The Workspaces Tree will be hidden by default when displayed on small screens. You can see the Selected Node displayed in the Status Bar. Double-click or Double-tap the status bar to quickly reveal the Workspaces Tree. Alternatively you can use the Workspaces Tree show/hide button.

Most common types of Nodes:

icon-workspace Workspace
Workspaces are special container Nodes that can be shared with other users. All other Nodes are created within the Workspace. Workspaces can only be created by the Account Owner or Administrators.
icon-group Group
Groups are simple Nodes that provide structure to your Workspaces. You may choose to group content by geography or related purpose. Groups can be created inside Workspaces, Locations and other Groups.
icon-location Location
Locations are special containers used to associate data with a geographical location. Locations can be created inside Workspaces and Groups.
icon-chart Chart
Create various types of charts with customized functionality and appearance including historic charts with multiple y-axes and wind rose charts with configurable ranges.
icon-dash Dashboard
Dashboards allow users to create customized views of their data in visually appealing layouts using animated gauges, charts, lists, maps and other graphical controls.
icon-datasource Data Source
Data Sources automatically acquire or receive timeseries data using a variety of different transport options. Connect to a data logger or collect data from files. Data Sources can be created inside Locations only.
icon-point-number-range Parameter
Parameters are managed by and contained within Data Sources. Parameters store the individual timeseries acquired by its Data Source. There are a few different types of parameters but essentially they support Monitoring or Controlling of values.
