We just finished overhauling our date and time picker. The new version is faster and more efficient to use, and creates a smoother work flow. Here are the major changes you can expect to see:
- The global date and time picker is no longer displayed at the top of the screen
- The workflow has been modified so that the date and time picker is displayed after an analytic is selected to run
- There is a whole new layout and calendar tool for setting time intervals
- Data resolution can be modified prior to running analytics
- Comparisons can be created prior to running analytics
- There are options to automatically select the last seven days
- The time interval automatically defaults to run midnight to midnight
Analytic options like data resolution and selecting between running VSO on count stations or detection zones will be displayed at the top of the window. These options affect the overall analytic that is being run.
The target will be displayed here. If you want to change the target, use the X and then search for the one that you want to use.
Clicking the start or end date will open the calendar. There are several options within it:
- The range of dates can be adjusted. This can be done by selecting dates on the calendar, using the dropdowns above the calendar, or by typing directly in the date and time range fields.
- Times can be adjusted also. To do this, use the dropdowns under the calendar, or type directly in the date and time range fields.
- At the bottom of the picker there are options to select the last 7 days and to automatically set the interval so that analytics run from midnight to midnight
- Once you have made your selections, use the apply option to continue
In some analytics like Travel Time or Volume you can create comparisons using the Add Route or Add VSO Sensor option at the bottom of the window. Comparisons can be made using the same route or sensor if you want to look at a different interval of time. Or you can make a comparison using use a different route or sensor and the same interval of time. You can add as many combinations of routes or sensors and times as you’d like.
Each selection for a comparison has a target and time range. These will be listed here. Each selection can be edited individually by clicking it.
