How to add, delete, resize and move dashlets


To add, delete, resize or move dashlets, click the menu icon in the upper left hand corner and choose "Edit":

A bar will appear at the top:

To add a dashlet, click the + sign on the left. A menu will appear with available dashlets, click the plus button to add it or anywhere else in the row to see more information on the dashlet.


To delete a dashlet, click on the dashlet so it is selected, and press the center trashbin icon. To exit the edit mode, click the X on the right side.


To resize or move, click the dashlet and a box will appear around it. It can then be dragged to a different location, and clicking and dragging one of the circles on each side will resize the dashlet.


Available dashlets and how to edit properties

In "Edit" mode, clicking the + button to add a widget will show available widgets.


Available dashlets

  • Dial Gauge: Displays the most recent value of a single register as a dial gauge. It is also possible to display markers indicating the minimum and/or maximum values of that register over a certain time period (e.g., over the last 24 hours).
  • Resource Flow Diagram: Visualizes how resources flow between user-selected icons. Can be used, for example, to show how power flows from the grid to a house or from a solar panel to the house.
  • Now Table: Displays a table of the most recent measurement values. Each table row displays the most recent value of a register.
  • Summary Table: Displays a table of measurement summary values. Each table row shows either the accumulated value or the average value of a register over a summary period. The summary period is selectable and can be a running summary (e.g., since 24 hours ago) or a set summary (e.g., since start of the day).
