I am currently logging string data through a data sampling object in EasyBuilder Pro and displaying it with a history data sample object on the HMI. Is there a way to have this data available in the dashboard?
It is possible to publish this data to Dashboard and backup this data so that it can be analyzed on a remote PC. To publish the string data, you will need to perform the following:
Add a String tag to your Data source within Weincloud:
Note: Please ensure “History” is enabled.
Within a Dashboard project, use a “Tag-history” display widget to display the historic value of this tag:
To backup this data (as a csv), you may use the “Backup” button within the Data Source tab:

Thanks for the help. Is there a way to have multiple string data tags in one table?
they seam to gray out when I have the multiple tag option selected.
I believe that the aggregation feature does not currently support string values. However, I will confirm this information with our factory over the weekend.
Thanks for looking into it.
When I attempt to publish my Dashboard with a string tag in my history widget I get this error:
What would cause this?
I tried to replicate this, but when I configured a similar String tag in a new a project it seemed to work without issue. Here is a video of my attempt: Link
Can you confirm if you performed a similar process?
I ran some tests and discovered that the error happens when you are pulling data from 2 different panels in the dashboard software. Once a second panel is added the string data sources have the “invalid tag” error.
Thank you so much for identifying this issue, I was able to replicate this as well and I have forwarded it to our team for evaluation. I will let you know as soon as this issue is resolved.
I have confirmed that currently this feature is not supported and our developers do not plan on adding this capability within the next release.
I wanted to inform you that the development team is currently working to resolve this issue, but at the moment I do not have an estimated time of completion.
The development team has advised that this issue should be resolved. Thank you again and please inform us if you encounter any other issues.
