Seeq Team Allison Buenemann Posted July 2, 2019 Seeq Team Share Posted July 2, 2019 FAQ: I would like to create a condition for the summer season that runs from May 1 - September 30, but when I use the Periodic Condition tool to create a monthly condition and select the months May-September, I get individual monthly capsules rather than one capsule for the entire summer. Is there a better way to do this using Seeq's tools? Solution 1 - Using Seeq Point & Click Tools: 1. Use the Periodic Condition tool to create a condition for May. 2. Use the Periodic Condition tool to create a condition for September. 3. Use the Composite Condition tool (join operator, inclusive of A, inclusive of B) to create a new condition that spans from the beginning of May to the end of September. Solution 2 - Using Seeq Formula: 1. Create a monthly Periodic Condition selecting all of you "summer months". Note that while it looks like one long capsule at the top of the display pane, it is actually 5 adjacent monthly capsules. You can confirm this by looking at the capsules pane in the bottom right hand corner of the application. 2. Use Seeq Formula and the merge() function to merge adjacent capsules. The appropriate syntax for merging adjacent capsules can be found by searching the word "merge" in the search documentation bar within Seeq Formula and scrolling to the example to "merge overlapping AND adjacent capsules". Note now in the capsules pane there are still the individual capsules for summer months, but there is a new green capsule that spans the entire summer as defined in this problem statement. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
