Valsight allows an administrator to configure additional units, which are globally available in the system.
Navigate to the unit section in the configuration interface to find a list of all available units.
The default list of units looks similar to this overview.
Detailed configuration options
|Name||The name of the unit as shown in the inspector and dropdowns.|
|Short sign||The symbol of the unit as shown in tables and charts.|
|Unit Placement||Show the symbol before or after the value ($10 vs 10€). A 'none' placement will omit the symbol if possible (useful for FTEs and other quantities).|
The default scale for the unit. E.g. 12345678€ with a scale of 'm' (Million) will show up as 12.345678 m€ in charts and tables.
This setting can be overwritten by the scale set in the node, chart or table.
The default number of decimal places for this unit. E.g. 1.23456€ with 2 decimal places will show up as 1.23€ in charts and tables.
This setting can be overwritten by the decimal places set in the node, chart or table.
|Unit Type||Assign units to a unit type. If in doubt, use scalar. Valsight bases validations and checks on this unit type, e.g. by checking that different unit types are not used in additions without conversions.|
Force scale (before 3.6.0)
Prior to 3.6.0 instead of scale and decimal places a force scale setting was used.
If set to a specific scale, all values in this unit will be shown on that scale, regardless of automatic scale settings. For example:
Percentage values→ never show as "kilo-%" or similar
EUR values → no force scale set, automatically decide whether to show "K EUR" or "M EUR"
