What's new in Wonderware Online InSight

With information coming at you from all directions it is increasingly difficult to stay on top of everything - this is one of the reasons why I love our InSight platform - it consolidates all of your industrial data (SCADA, IoT devices, CSV or even multiple historians) and makes it available at your fingertips. 

Performance data becomes a live, decision-support feed on your mobile, tablet or desktop.

Plus, because InSight is a secure cloud service, the latest features are available immediately, and they just work! Simple. Frictionless. InSight.

What's new in November 2017?

  • Add comments to charts
  • Smart chart labeling and other chart improvements
  • New languages supported
  • Improvements to Administrator portal 

Add comments to charts

Recently we added the ability to overlay alarm and event information to your InSight charts, well now you can also add personalized comments.

From a line chart simply select the 'Add comment' icon from the top right hand corner, position on the appropriate point in time, and write your comment. You can even decide whether to keep the comment private or publish to your team so you can tailor the content accordingly.

Add comments to your InSight charts

Once saved your comment will then be available in InSight and SmartGlance so you can always refer back to it as needed. Make notes for clarification, or provide additional information about a specific event, or direct people to a particular site -the choice is yours

And stay tuned for a future update when you will also be able to amend or delete comments.


Smart chart labeling and other chart improvements

There have also been a number of chart improvements that will make your life easier. For instance, InSight will now automatically truncate tag names so that your charts show the shortest, unique tag name - this is particularly useful if you haven't yet created your own tag aliases.

As you can see below, the names update as tags are toggled on and off. When just the Clearwell Inlet tags are selected we see shorter names but when we also select Clearwell Outlet tags the names change to include the additional context. This smart chart labeling makes it quicker to identify and interpret data. 

InSight automatically creates smart labels for your charts


Enhanced tag tooltips means as you hover over your tags you can see more detailed information on each tag, plus the tooltip will highlight the truncated tag name. 

And in response to your feedback, we have now updated our chart colors so that whether you look at tags in InSight or SmartGlance you will always see the same color for each tag. So in the example above, Clearwell Inlet Flow Rate will display as blue on desktop, tablet and mobile.


New languages supported

In addition to French, Polish and Japanese, InSight now offers native support for Czech and Slovak. So whether you are being hosted in the EU version or the USA version InSight will display in your preferred language. 

We are continually adding new translations so if you want to see InSight localized to your language please let us know at feedback@wonderware.com 

Just a reminder that you can also set your language preference in your browser settings and your numbers and dates will display in the formats for that language - whether or not full translation is supported.


Improvements to Administration Portal

As we see more and more people transition to the cloud, we are continually enhancing our Administration Portal so that managing your InSight solution remains as easy as possible. This month we have improved our password reset process and on-boarding emails so that you can manually trigger these as necessary. 

We've also added some tracking metrics to the portal so you can see how many users and tags are active in your solution. This is great for monitoring user adoption and subscription usage so you can see exactly how "sticky" the InSight experience is!


So if you're thinking IIoT, Cloud or Mobile, why not start today?
