Conditional Value Widget – Overview

A Conditional Value widget can change how the data from a single tag is displayed according to the current value of the tag.

When you customize the widget, under Conditions, you can set a range of values, then assign an icon, background color, and text to each range. When the widget displays the value, it will display it with the icon, color, and text you assigned to that range.

You can set multiple ranges within different Scopes: Aggregated Data and Last Value. You select which tag to display, determine the data to display, organize how the data is presented, and then customize the widget’s appearance.
