Cycle View Evaluation Module


The Cycle View Evaluation Module will allow users to view multiple cycles at the Asset and Group object level in the cycle view browser. It can be utilized with any cycle, regardless of its status (watch, warning, etc.). The three main parts used for this module is the Cycle View Browser, Cycle Compare (Collection) Window, and the Cycle Compare Browser. 

Click on the image to the left to view the Cycle View Evaluation Module video or click on this Cycle View Evaluation Module link.

Open Cycle View

First, navigate to get to the Cycle View Browsers, so that the History Display Panel can be accessed.

After opening the enVision browser, click on the blue Object Tree icon to open the Main Tree. Navigate the Main Tree to drill down to the Asset or Group level. This module is active at the Asset levels and below.

The Cycle View window will update with the last 100 cycles. Select a cycle from the History Display Panel. 

Selecting Cycles to Compare

Once the enVision browser is open, select the Cycle view tab from the top menu tab and a new Cycle View window will reveal with the last 100 cycles in the History Display Panel (in the lower browser window).

Select a cycle from the History Display Panel. Once a cycle is selected, it will have a white dash line through the selected cycle, showing that it is selected.

Open Cycle Compare Window

When the cycle is clicked on, the upper display window will show the cycle selected. In the upper right-hand side above that window will be the Cycle View Menu bar. On the far-right side is the Cycle compare  button.

Now with 2 (or more) cycles in the Cycle Compare folder (CEM 001) you can select the View button, and this will show the 2 (or more) cycles in the upper browser window.

The cycles will be displayed layered one atop of the other. Hovering over a bar will reveal the details of the cycle.

There is a 25 text* message limit per day on one notification. Once it reaches 25 notifications, it will no longer send any more until the next day. This is controlled by the administrator. It can be increased if need be. The emails, however, will keep being sent.

Note: in the text message, there is an option to text STOP to halt the sending of the notifications via texting. This feature can be used once then restored. If it is used a second time, then it will not send any more until the next day. You can go back and edit the Conditional Notification to have it restart if needed.
