The Group Trending tool allows you to quickly and easily run trends for multiple devices on the same axes. You can also create new trend configurations to instantly view charts that best suit your needs, with your desired data values, trimeframe and customization.
Note: The appropriate security permissions must be granted to your user account by your site administrator, in order to utilize the SCADALynx Trending functionality.
Navigate to the Summary Listing page of the group you wish to trend, then click the Group Trending icon from the side menu.
If a default group trend configuration has been set to the group, this will auto populate on the Group Trending page. If a default has not been set, the page will read No data found.
From the toolbar, you can select/view an existing configuration by clicking the Please select a configuration drop-down selection.
To create a new group trend configuration, click the three dots on the upper right corner and then click Create New.
Each Graph is built using at least one Section. Each Section is initially created with defaults for the Name, Duration, and Y-Axes settings. You are free to change these at any time, though we advise you to set these options from the beginning if possible. Once you are ready to begin editing, click the “Edit Contents” button to move into building the Section:
From here, you can select the group or groups, devices, and/or tanks you'd like to see on the graph.
Note: To find a tag TAT, go to the Properties tab of the tag you'd like to use, and find the "Tag Type".
Format Data Series
On the Format Data Series Page, you can use the drag-and-drop handles on the left side of each Data Series to rearrange their order. You have the option of defining Color, Chart Type, Line Style, and Marker for each Value, and you can also add an Optional Display Name. All of these options will have defaults, so you don't need to make any adjustments. Clicking the “Format Graph” button at the bottom right will complete the configuration for the Section:
Additional Configuration Sections

- Create a new graph
- Copy an existing graph
- Set the graph you're on as your default
- Modify permissions (this will be managed via security groups)
