Search for a data item
With the large number of items in the Zoommi database, it is necessary to use various filters to find the items of interest.
These filters include:
- Text search within the item name and its description
- Category and sub categories via a selection lists
- Source of data via a selection list
- Country via a selection list
- State, City and/or Location
The filters are cumulative to refine a search. The search will use the applied filters to retrieve a list of items in the Results selection list.
The filters may be reset to Any be clicking on the icon button.
The search dialog is standard across all the trend pages as well as the Items page. Once the Results selection box is filled and you are in a Trend page, simply select the item you want to trend. If you are on the Items page, select the item to review its details.
Create a single trend with up to 12 lines
Once an item has been selected via the Search selection, click on the Trend icon to plot this item using the default dates.
If you want to add another item to the trend, select a new item from the Results list and click on the Add icon . Up to eight items can be trended within the single trend box.
To select a different data range, click on the Clock icon .
If the Single scale is selected, then the Y-Axis scale is based on the first item selected, for all the items on the trend.
If the Multi scale is selected, each trend is auto scaled individually with a minimum and maximum value shown inside the trend.
If you do not want the trend to auto-scale, then select the fixed scale option and provide a minimum and maximum value to be used for the Y-axis.
The trend is interactive, so by clicking on the point of interest on the trend, an intersection line is shown with its date and value for each trend line. If you wish to zoom in to the trend, create a 'rubber-band' around the trend line by positioning the cursor above and the the left of the required data, and then hold the left mouse button down while you drag the cursor to the right and down. When it is in the correct place, release the left mouse button and the trend will be redrawn, just showing the selected data.
