Downtime Tagging

Asset Administrator creates customizable tags for a specific period of downtime of an asset including Idle (yellow), Error (red), and Unknown (grey) segments on the Utilization Over Time chart so that operators in the same organization could view the downtime causes, and add existing tags based on actual scenarios.

Note

  • The downtime tagging feature is only available to assets with PRO or PRO Trial subscriptions. See Upgrade a Lite Asset to PRO for details.

  • Only an Asset Administrator has permission to create and remove tags while a Standard User can select and add tags that are created by administrators.

The section below describes how to add, edit, delete, and split a tag upon the Utilization Over Time chart under the Asset Dashboard.

  1. Log into the SFx Asset Management Portal: https://login.hexagonsfx.com/Account/Login.

  2. Scroll down to the Utilization Over Time chart under the Asset Dashboard.

  3. Select a downtime segment of an asset you want to add a tag to.

    Tip

    You can filter out the target asset first using the asset filters, then go to the Utilization Over Time chart to quickly find out the utilization bar chart of the asset.

    Alternatively, you can also go to the Utilization Over Time chart in the Asset Detail View directly. See Adding a Tag in the Asset Detail View.

  4. Click on the segment (except the green) of the bar chart, and select the Add tags option to open a pop-up dialog.

  7. Click Save.

Note

  • For an asset with a PRO or PRO Trial subscription, which is running a smart program, there are three options: Add tagsGo to asset, and Go to program when clicking on a downtime segment of the asset upon the Utilization Over Time chart under the Asset Dashboard. In contrast, if a PRO asset is running a non-smart program, there are two options: Add tags and Go to asset available when clicking it.

  • For an asset with a Lite subscription, there is no Add tags option available whatever program is running on the asset.
