Configuring Views

You can change the time scale of a view, switch between the Default and Custom views, and reset the Custom view.

Setting the Time Scale of a View

By default the time scale of a view is one day. To change the time scale, click a duration link at the top-right of the view.

Setting the View Type

To set the view type, click and select one of the following:
  • Custom - displays the Custom view.
  • Default - displays the Default view.
  • Reset - resets the Custom view to the predefined set of charts, discarding any customizations.

Saving Charts to Views

You can save the charts and their configurations (type, dimension, and y-axis minimum and maximum) as a new view or to an existing view.

If your tsquery statement resulted in multiple charts, those charts are saved as a unit (either to a new or existing view). You cannot edit the individual plots in that set of charts, but you can edit the set as a whole. A single edit button appears for the set that you saved — typically on the last chart in the set.

You can edit a copy of the individual charts in the set, but the edited copy does not change the original chart in the view from which it was copied.
