Associate an Event Calendar with a Metric

Event Calendars may be associated with one or more Metrics.  A Calendar's individual Events are displayed on the Metric Viewer under the following conditions:

  • The Metric must be associated with the Event Calendar on the Event Calendar Editor
  • Key Events are always displayed on the associated Metrics (See Understanding Key Events for more information)
  • Events not designated as "Key" are shown when the results of the Measurement Date are found to be outside of the Standard Deviation as calculated based on the Metric settings  (See Understanding Events for more information)

Individual Events may be hidden by the User with view access to a Metric (See Hide and Un-hide Events for more information)
