  • Alarm Sounds
    • Alarm consoles can now have sounds configured per class under the Alarms > Alarm Console > Alarm Sounds menu
    • Each of the 11 sounds has been created or curated by our team to be pleasant yet attention grabbing in any environment
    • Sounds will be played when the console refreshes and a new alarm record is transitioning into a fault, offnormal, or alert state

  • Dynamic Row Styles
    • Find these options in Alarms > Alarm Console > Table Styles & Columns
    • Alarm table rows can be styled based on source state (alert, fault, offnormal, normal) or acknowledgement status
    • A color can be selected for each state/status and separate options for the row border, background, cell text, and action button can be toggled to use this color
    • The icons that appear in the Ack State column for acked/unacked records can now be customized

      • The primary Y-axis (left) is chosen based on which history was added to the chart first, the second history added with a differing unit facet will set the secondary axis and all other histories with differing facets will add additional options to the secondary Y-axis
      • Y-axes can be swapped by clicking on the axis label
      • Hovering over a Y-axis label will isolate the histories associated with it in the chart
    • Hovering over a legend item will isolate the corresponding history in the chart

  • History Index Page Group Filtering
    • The filter menu now deselects child groups when a parent group is deselected
    • While this new behavior feels better and makes more sense to end-users in the Reflow view, it will make it impossible to select parent groups without also selecting their children when using multiple tags in Niagara History Groupings. To account for this, a new Strict Group Picker option has been added to the Histories Index Page config. When enabled, this will return the group filter its pre-1.7.1 behavior.
  • Display names will now be shown instead of history names for remote histories that have a display name set

  • A Map Marker menu option has been added to each Building's configuration; this can be used to set marker style and precise location information for buildings in one spot


  • Devices can now be served by multiple devices. Up to two parent items will be shown in the device's title - when more than two served by parents are selected, a dropdown menu will appear instead

  • The Status Point property can now be set when remapping devices; a remap warning prompt will now appear when changing the Status Point of an Equipment Type on the Point Template


  • Building Map Card
    • The buildings that appear on this card can be filtered in the card configuration

Reflow 1.7.0 - 02/20/2023

This release includes major feature updates for Histories, Equipment, Schedules, and the Reflow Config user interface. Additional features, performance improvements, and bug fixes are included for nearly every Reflow system​


  • Enum and String Charts
    • These series types are no longer limited to tables and can now be plotted independently or alongside numeric and Boolean series types
    • When plotted with numerics, enum and string data will display at the bottom of the chart below the x-axis. When comparing with previous time ranges, the data from the previous range will appear at the top of the chart along the top x-axis

  • Boolean Charts
    • Boolean series now display in a manner consistent with the new enum and string designs, along the bottom of charts
    • The previous behavior of shading the entire chart to indicate true values can be re-enabled by going to the Histories > Chart Defaults configuration and turning on the 'Classic Boolean Style' option
  • Out of Range data
    • When data for a selected time range is not available in the series but past data for the history exists (indicating a change hasn't occurred in the selected time range), Reflow will chart the past value for the series
    • This interpolation on the chart is indicated by lighter, striped bars for Booleans, enums, and strings, and dotted lines with striped fills for numerics. Hovering over the series in the chart will indicate the time of the last write on the data tooltip
    • This feature can be toggled on/off under Histories > Chart Defaults > Contextual Ranges configuration
  • History Sources
    • When browsing histories in the Reflow View, cards and rows on the History Index Page now display the history's data source - the Niagara device/station that hosts the history.
    • The source display can be turned off with the 'Show Source Names' option in the Histories > Histories Index Page configuration
    • A 'History Sources' dropdown has been added to the filter pane when browsing histories on the history index page and selecting histories when creating charts

    • Sparkline previews now use the time range specified in the Histories > Chart Defaults configuration
  • Performance Optimizations
    • History Groupings support has been heavily optimized to reduce history list load times when history groupings are present in the station
    • Local Cache: History names, groups, and sources are now cached in browser so that future page loads are extremely fast. If histories, history groupings, or sources are modified on the station after a user has loaded the histories page in a session, they must refresh their web browser to see them. The Local Cache can be turned off in the Histories > Global Settings configuration
    • Station Cache: History names and groups can also be cached on the station. This will dramatically improve first load times on stations with 10,000 or more histories
      • The cache will be served to users for the time specified in the duration property, after which a new cache will be regenerated the next time a user requests history data
      • If the Station Cache is enabled, histories and groups added after it has been generated will not appear until the cache is regenerated either automatically after its duration or manually in the Station Cache configuration
  • Histories Config
    • Due to the increasing amount of History options, the Featured Histories, History Index Page, Chart Defaults, and Global Settings properties have been moved to their own configuration menus in the Histories configuration

  • Custom durations are now supported in point actions that include a duration option
  • Equipment Config
    • Points Template Virtuals Support - equipment type point templates now support auto-detection of Niagara virtual points
    • A new option called 'Ignore Device Type Restrictions' has been added under Equipment > Graphics Settings > Additional Options to unrestrict the types of components that can be selected as Reflow devices. When this option is active, any Niagara Nav Node can be selected as a Reflow device. Use caution, selecting incompatible components for devices may cause device pages and other content to have issues loading and/or behave unexpectedly


  • Schedules can be reordered in the configuration list; this order will be used in the Reflow View on Schedules pages
  • Schedule Groups
    • Schedules can now be organized into groups
    • Top-level groups appear on the schedules index page and link to a separate page displaying child groups and schedules under it
    • Groups configuration and schedule order is global; it applies to all schedule index pages including building schedule pages


  • Toggle Card - This new card toggles any Boolean point when clicked. The value display and color, icon and icon color, and the action that runs on click can be customized for true and false states independently

  • Niagara Point Card - Custom durations are now supported on Niagara actions which include a duration option
  • Weather Cards - Current Conditions, Forecast, and Map cards now support hyperlinks

Niagara Component Selection Improvements

  • Clicking the search icon next to Niagara component dropdowns in the Reflow Config will launch a newly designed modal

  • Address Bar
    • A new bar appears at to top of the modal, it supports copying and pasting ORDs including those to folders, devices, or other containers/components
    • When an ORD is entered that is not a valid selection, the tree will navigate to the ORD provided so that a valid component can be selected
  • Favorites
    • ORDs and searches can be added to Favorites using the star icon in the Address Bar
    • Favorites data is stored for each Niagara user on the station file system in the file:^reflow/favorites folder
  • History
    • A history of each search and selected ORD is available for quick access by using the View History link from the Address Bar
    • History data is stored locally in the web browser and never sent to the station
  • Keyword Search
    • When a non-ORD is entered in the Address Bar, Reflow will search your station for Niagara components whose names match the search query
    • Searches can be further refined using keyword:value syntax. Supported keyword options include is, not, slotpath, type, parent, and display. Additional options and examples can be found in the Reflow Documentation
    • While typing in the Address Bar, the picker will automatically show matching Favorites and History entries in the drop down


  • Histories can be assigned to buildings based on their source using the new 'Selected Sources' option in the Filter Method property. Multiple sources (stations/devices) can be chosen
