We have completely redesigned the top bar and side menu. On the desktop: click the menu icon in the top left-hand corner to expand and see the descriptions for each item.We have also updated how elements load on the tag overview page to reduce the chance of clicking the wrong button
We have redesigned the properties page, and you can now set your favorite properties to stay at the top of the page. The favorites are shared between tags, so you don't need to favorite the same properties for all tags.Minor fixesWe've removed unnecessary scroll bars from many sections and pages (showed up on Windows PCs only), fixed issues with trend charts that displayed aggregate values instead of raw values at some zoom levels, and many more.
NotificationsWe've seen how intrusive the notifications could be in situations with varying WiFi quality, and have redesigned how the notifications work. Confirmations show as a small grey single-line message (for example, "checklist deleted"), while important issues show as full-width, horizontal bars.Image performanceUploading of images has been a massive success, with thousands of images uploaded so far. Pages with many high-quality images could cause the app to fail, but we have now improved the performance. We'll continue improving the performance in the coming releases.Checklist performanceWhen many users each had many checklists, the app would sometimes load slower. The app now loads with the same speed regardless of the number of checklists.
The scanner function is improvedWe've rolled out to customers and assets that have very different tag and nameplate structures. To improve tag scanning, we have made a separate tag scanning workflow to better support these cases. This change does not affect tag scanning at plants where the functionality already worked well.
We're happy to announce the general availability of the Cognite Data Fusion API v1.Please help us improve our products by letting us know what you think or if you have any issues. To send us feedback, or if you need help, contact email@example.com. New featuresExternal IDThe external ID field, (externalId), is available in API v1 across multiple core resources: time series, assets, events, and files. You can now define a unique identifier for each data object in Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) as an optional extension to the existing id field.The purpose of external IDs is to:Insert data without creating duplicate entries. Avoid extra lookups when updating data. Maintain relationships between data objects from source systems. Give you a way of performing key-value lookups with keys you control, and that works the same across core resources.Learn more about external IDs here.3D APIYou can now upload and process 3D models with the 3D API. Initially, we support the upload of 3D models in the
New loading screenWe've introduced a new loading screen in line with Cognite brand identity.Trend y-axis now handles large numbers betterWhen a time series y-axis range had large numbers (typically 10.000 and higher), the charts could look cluttered. We are now displaying large numbers by shortening them to 10k for 10.000, and 1M for 1.000.000.
Delete checklists warningWe've received feedback that it was too easy to unintentionally delete checklists that others were still working on. You now get a warning if you try to delete a checklist that others could still be using. The logic remains the same: if you created a checklist, you can delete it, but that makes the checklist unavailable for others. If you did not create the checklist, you can not delete it (but you can choose to leave the checklist).Manage multiple checklistsIt is now easier to switch between multiple checklists on mobile devices. Click the checklist title to pull down a list of checklists and select the checklist you are looking for.
Multiple states on checklist items Checklist items can now have multiple states. When you are collaborating with others about a checklist, you can, for example: Use a "started" state to prevent others from starting on the same items. Use multiple states to control progress (for example, "started", "started in field", "finished in field", "completed")
Tag description in checklists - We've received feedback that checklist items were difficult to relate to without the description field. We've updated the way we show tags in checklists to include the tag description field.Pre-fixes in checklist itemsTo make it easier to add tag-based checklists from certain other systems, you can now add checklist items with prefixes. For example, if your work management tool (e.g., SAP or Workmate) uses a prefix for each tag (MyPlant-21PT1019), you don't have to remove the prefix in Excel or other tools before you create a checklist. You can paste the tag list, including the prefixes, directly into the tag field.Clicking other tags in the 3D viewWe have fixed an issue where it could be a problem identifying tags when clicking on another asset in the 3D view. It is now easier to click nearby tags and find out what the item is or navigate to the tag directly.Checklists now include the name of who checked it (desktop only)When you collaborate with others
