Associate an Event Calendar with Individual 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
  • Events 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).

The purpose of this article is to guide an Administrator or Power User through the process of associating an Individual Metric with an Event Calendar and providing an example of displayed Events.

NOTE: An Event Calendar can be associated with the Individual Metric only if during its creation the User has chosen "Individual Metrics" in the Applies to list of field. For more information check the Creating an Event Calendar article.
