New Honeycomb Feature: Date Picker and Custom Report View
Reviewing the graph data collected for a specific vibration monitoring project is now possible with the new Date Picker feature in Honeycomb. Previously, you could view pre-set time frames such as days or weeks. Now, the Date Picker gives you full control over the period you would like to display. You can choose any custom time frame, from a few minutes to several months or years. It is also possible to export the data view created with this new feature as a report. With this option, you can create a convenient overview of all project data at once.
Here is how the Date Picker works
To view a custom time frame, visit the Graph overview page in Honeycomb. There you can choose the “Date picker” filter displayed above the graph:
Clicking on the Date Picker opens a calendar where you can choose the time frame you want to display in the graph. The selected dates will be highlighted in yellow. You can display the entire day or a specific period within the day. To choose a specific period, untick the ‘start of day’ and/or ‘end of day’ box below the calendar (highlighted in red in the picture below) and provide your preference. The choice made here applies to every day within the time frame and cannot be selected on a per-day basis.
You can move the custom time frame by a day, week, or month. To do this, click on the corresponding arrow under the graph, as you can see highlighted in red below.
To create a PDF report of this custom view, click on the ‘Export’ button above the graph (see picture below). The downloaded file contains the same time frame and information as displayed in the graph view. To download the report as an Excel file or CSV document, click on the ‘Export’ button and confirm the custom period before exporting.
If you have any questions about this new feature or the Honeycomb platform, we would be happy to schedule a meeting with you!
