| Enhanced Heatmap Tools for Installers

Part 1

Part 2

The enhanced heatmap feature is available only to Level II Certified installers to give them a leg up in troubleshooting and analyzing a site. These features include:

  • Remote Reconfiguration
  • Contextual Tuners
  • Summary Tables
  • Custom Trend Widgets
  • Notes

| Remote Reconfiguration

Remote Reconfiguration is a tool that allows you to change any configuration of equipment as if you were at the CCU. With great power comes great responsibility. Making these changes can have a drastic impact on the control of your site. 


System Remote Reconfiguration

To make changes to your system configuration, you click on the name of that system at the top of the heatmap. Remember, a system is synonymous with a CCU. So whatever the CCU is named, is where you access the system. System configurations are zoned AHU configurations. 

Scroll to the bottom and find a header for Reconfiguration. Under that, you will see the same configurations you set on the CCU. They are all editable. However, you must type a reason for change and hit save when making these changes remotely.

Zone Remote Reconfiguration

To make changes to your zone's configuration, you click on the zone in the heatmap that you want to edit the configuration of. 

Scroll to the bottom and there is a header for Reconfiguration. 


| Contextual Tuners

Nothing is changing about what tuners you can change. This feature just brings tuners closer to the front of mind. For our installers we want you to feel enabled to make the proper changes. By bringing the tuners into their zone or system context, we believe that installers will better understand the changes they are making. 

To access tuners now, all you need to do is click on the system or zone you wish to make a change to. Scroll down to the tuners header. The tuners displayed will only be relevant to the zone or system (and associated zones) to the one you have open. 

Here you will notice that there is a new option for "Select Command" I recommend never using these commands unless instructed to by our support team. 


| Summary Tables

This is one of the most powerful additions to the 75F product. You can now use Haystack queries to create a table that shows any set of points current values, or their current status split into columns per relevant equip. You are also able to edit many of these points which allows you to make mass tuner or configuration adjustments with only a few clicks.


Viewing Summary Tables

To pick a summary table that already exists, click 'Add Summary Table' and search. 75F Support has already created a beautiful set of summary tables for each of our out-of-box profiles. This set of summary tables is already shared with you. So before you go make your own, I highly recommend you try using the ones that are already created.  


You'll see that summary tables are split into three sections. Personal (only you have access), Shared by me (you created and shared it), Shared by others (tables you have access to but did not create).

Important Note: If a point value has not been updated recently, the Summary table may not indicate it. So if something in the table doesn't look right, you may need to look at the trend widgets to fully understand what is going on.


Editing Points with Summary Tables

When you first open a table, it is set to view only. If you wish to make edits, you much check the box for 'View Priority Array & Edit Parameter Value'. Once checked, you will see a pencil icon appear next to each row. 

Once you click edit, you will need to choose which equips you want to make a change to and for what duration. Take special note of what level in the priority array you are writing to. It is very possible that there are higher values in effect. So if you make a change and don't see it reflected in your equip. You will need to check for values at higher levels in the priority array using site explorer. 

Select equips you wish to change on the right. Change your value on the left. And if you wish for your override to expire after a period of time, set the duration. Otherwise to make it permanent, leave the duration blank. 

| Custom Trend Widgets

Custom trend widgets allow you to create your own haystack queries to create new trend charts. These can be as complicated as you make them and use the same backend as PAM, Portfolio Analytics Manager. 


Before making any changes you must enable editing analytics from the heatmap. 


Custom Widgets

Once you've enabled Edit Analytics, Custom widgets are specific to a system or a zone. So if you want to look at a set of points for a single zone. Just click the zone on the heatmap and scroll down to the Custom Widgets Header and hover over the bottom of that section so that the "+" icon appears. Click it. 

Then simply create a query that returns the points you are looking for. Same as you would in PAM. Name the widget, and Save.

Global Widgets

Global widgets allow you to do the same thing as custom widgets, but to all of your zones or systems at once. So instead of needing to go into each zone individually and add the custom widget. You can create a Global Widget that applies the contextual query and trend to all zones or systems at once. 


To do this click on the '+' icon in the lower right of the heatmap. 

Then select the zones or systems you wish to query. Run your query just the same. Name it and Save! Now each contextual point will show up under Global widgets when you open the zone or system in the heatmap. This can help quickly troubleshoot tuner values for example. 

Sharing Widget

Alright, so you made all these awesome widgets but other users cant see them. Remember when I had you click 'Edit Analytics'? Go back to that same spot when you are done and hit Publish. Now all users with access to this site will see the custom and global widgets you created. 


| Notes

Take site-specific notes directly on the heatmap. Made a bunch of tuner adjustments and want a reminder why? Want to take notes of last service? Have ideas for next time? Take a note! 


Simply scroll to the bottom of your heatmap and expand Notes. All existing notes will show in the list. To add a note, just click Add Note and type your note.
