    Hello,

    I've created a few dashboards that work exactly as I need them. When I create a menu item linking to those pages, that also works fine. But as soon as I put those links into a folder on the menu, the pages turn up blank.

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    Hello,

    I was playing around with the dashboard builder today, and I noticed that if you stack two <ma-serial-chart> objects on top of each other, and set them both to style="height: 50%; width: 100%", the result will be as expected: Two charts taking up the entire screen width, and half of the screen height.

    The problem is if you expand the date bar. This seems to cause the charts to both start to increase their height indefinitely. They don't stop until the page is reloaded.

    Interesting quirk. Not sure if its just me.

    Hello,

    I have a MangoES box. It is storing point historical data in an internal NoSQL database. I have configured backups to be made at appropriate intervals, as per the help file.

    At the end of the help document regarding automatic backups, there is the following line:

    "It is highly recommended that you copy these zip files (either manually or by some automated means) to an offsite location."

    Does anyone have a recommended way of doing this automatically? One option is that I have a remote FTP server I could send the zip files to, but I'm not sure how to go about that. I also have access to a number of cloud drives, if that is easier.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry if this has been asked, but where are the log files for excel report generation. Some reports take longer than others, and I'm curious if there is a way to display and diagnose what functions are holding the report generation process up?

    I figured it out. There was a typo in my URL. Thanks for this.

    I put the data point in exactly as above. Not as an import; just manually. I get the following error when I click the green Test Value checkbutton.

    "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal character in opaque part at index 6: https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/usa/denver"

    My knowledge of regular expressions is not great. Any ideas on what I missed?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to get sunrise and sunset times for my local area into a data point. I know that there are plenty of websites that serve this data in various forms and there are probably various different ways to approach this.

    I am just wondering if anyone has done anything like this before and what the recommended approach would be before I attempt it. I tried the forum search, but I didn't find any applicable results.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Nevermind. I rebooted the server and it started working as intended.

    Hello,

    I have a virtual data source with a number of data points I want the operator to change by periodically setting manually.

    The virtual data points are analog. No logging is needed. The only time their value changes is manually from the operator (it is a seed value used in some other formulas). I think I have set everything up correctly, except for one thing I can't figure out.

    When I set the value, it seems to round up to two decimal places no matter how I set up the data point.

    So when I go to "Data Point Details" screen to set the value to 0.056837 it always sets it to 0.06 no matter what.

    The only place I can see to change anything like that is the "Text Render Properties" when I'm setting up the value. I have it set to Analog type and the Format is 0.000000.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance

    I figured meta tags was the way to go.

    Ideally I would like separate tags for hour of day (0-23), minute (0-59), day (0-31) month (1-12) year (yyyy) .

    So, five tags.

    I would set up a modbus publisher so the PLC's can query in and sync up times once per day.

    It would be nice to get them as close as possible (within the minute), but to-the-second precision isn't needed.
