I would like to generate a operating time counter and other stuff, for this I store the sum of the hours in the workflow and add up gradually, so they still available after lost connection. Now I would like to use these variables also in the dashboard. How can I visualize workflow storage variables in the dashboard? And what about workflow global variables, how do I have to configure it, so that I can use these variables in the dashboard.
There is not currently a direct method for doing what you’re asking for here – though we’re getting more and more requests for these type of features, so we may add this in the future.
Many thanks for the quick reply, it works fine.
Hello, is there any progress on this topic? I’m interested in doing something similar … any additional recommendations?
For the time counter, with an attribute on your device to hold the summed time value, you could implement a Losant API node and get the last two device states. Then with a math node, compare the times of those two and add that to your device attribute.
There has not been any advancement on workflow globals also being accessible within dashboards, but I will give it to our devs as a feature request. For now, Dylan’s solution above is the most direct solution.
