Configure Time bar Defaults

The time bar feature is available for all visual styles. When enabled, it appears at the bottom of a dashboard. You can use the time bar to filter the data in your visuals by a specified time attribute. If more than one data source is used for visuals on a dashboard, the time bar shown on the dashboard depends on the visual that is selected in the dashboard. For information on using the time bar on the dashboard, see Use the Time bar.

You can set time bar defaults for data sources used in your Angles Professional environment. These defaults are specified in data source configurations and are applied to visuals that are created using the data sources. Specifically, you can specify:

  • The default time field used for the time bar.
  • Whether playback and live mode should be available time bar features.
  • The default time range used for the time bar.

To specify default time bar settings for a data source configuration:

  1. Log in as a user with the Administer Sources privilege, or write permission for this source.
  2. Select Sources on the UI menu (). The Sources page appears.
  3. Select the appropriate data source configuration to edit it, then access the Global Settings tab of the data source.

  4. Enable Time Bar in Time Bar Settings. This allows you to edit all available time bar settings for new visuals. See Global Settings Tab.
  5. Select the time field to use in the Select Time Attribute box.The attribute you select is used as default and is displayed on the time bar after you create and open a new visual:

  6. If the time attribute you select is playable, enable the Enable Playback toggle to show the Play button (Data DVR functionality) on the time bar.

  7. Use the Time RangeFrom and To boxes to specify the default time bar range.
  8. You can set the range in static time or dynamic time, or use preset ranges provided with Angles.
  9. If you select Dynamic Time

    • Use Start of Data Set, or Start of, or Now to select different dynamic times:

    • Alternatively, select Presets... to fill the From and To boxes with predefined time ranges provided by Angles Professional:

    • Use the filter box at the top of the presets list to locate the preset setting you want. Descriptions of each of the preset options are provided in Preset Time Ranges.
  10. When your changes are complete, select Save Settings to save your changes.
