This feature is installed with the client apps package. It can be brought up through the windows search, as it is installed as an app.
Tags can be modified or created in this mode. When creating a tag it will be given a timestamp, value and quality. All of these fields can be edited. To create a tag from scratch follow these steps:
- Click the create button
- Next fill in the text fields with applicable data
The description is displayed on a typical tag as the tag name. The sample interval is how often the user can enter data values. If entering a value before the interval has reset, the tag will show a modified value with the time it changed until the next accepted value.
- Click the create button to finish making the tag
Once a tag has been created, the other buttons can be used to modify the tag. Remove will delete selected tag. Add... loads a tag from the local Historian. Save... saves the tag entry for later uses. When saving the tag, remember to save it in a location that can be transferred. This is especially important if doing a data migration in the future. Best practice is to save it with Historian data. To enter a value to a saved tag click the load... button.
The Manual Data Entry can also be used to modify existing tags. To modify a tag with a new value follow these steps:
- Add a tag from the local Historian by clicking the Add... button
- Select the data set and tag and click the Ok button
Use the Apply button to select tags from multiple data sets and keep the window open.
- Click on the Edit tab and select a timestamp
- Stop the logger
Values can not be committed to a file that is being logged to.
- Choose a time and value and click commit all
- Start the logger back up
If trying to override a current value the exact time must be specified. This includes milliseconds. See how this example was inserted because the timestamps didn't match up exactly.
If done correctly it should look like this.
