Custom Display Screens

Custom display screens are used to visually summarize the status of your network or facility at a glance; or to display any stations or measurements you have in FlowWorks in a custom format. Custom display screens can be made publically available for view, or they can be protected behind the log-in system, only for FlowWorks users to view.

Below are a few examples of the screens our developers have made for clients in the past.

Example 1: Lake Level Status Screen

Lake levels at various locations are shown on the same screen, as well as the rainfall for the past hour and 24 hours accompanied with temperature from a particular weather station.

Example 2: Water Treatment Plant Status Screen

This example shows various gauges for a single water treatment plant, including pump flows, reservoir levels and water quality parameters. The status of each pump is indicated by colors and alarms can be set up to alter any status when a particular condition is exceeded. All data shown on this screen is transmitted into FlowWorks every five minutes – the screen instantly refreshes upon the arrival of new data.

Example 3: Rainfall Summary Screen

In this Rainfall Summary screen, the two sets bars on the right indicate the amount of rainfall that has fallen over the previous hour and the previous 24 hours, respectively. These bars are programmed to turn red when a significant rainfall event occurs. Rainfall summary tables for the month, and the month previous, are accessible right from this screen; all table data are exportable as a CSV file.

Custom display screens are available to our clients on a per-request basis. Since this is a custom feature, we require a development fee, which varies depending on your needs.

Each of our clients have different use-cases for display screens. As a starting point, it is important to consider what you want your custom screen to show and how you want the backdrop of your custom screen to look. You can either provide us with a backdrop of your own choosing, or we can work with you to create a suitable backdrop.

To request a custom screen, please submit your request via our Support ticket system. Please include the purpose of your new screen, and what kind of information you want displayed. We will promptly contact you to work out the details and provide any assistance you may need in sketching out the best custom screen for your purposes.
