Updated Advanced page on the VRM Portal

Hi all,


Earlier this week, we've released a new version of the Advanced page of the VRM portal. Its now much more suitable to analyse the data of an installation.


Hereby some screenshots to show the new features.

  1. The first shot shows the main page. Note the little triangle on the lower right, it allows to drag and resize a chart. You can choose between 1, 2 or three columns wide.

  2. The second shot shows the dragging: you can now drag the charts. Together with the resizing, this makes it possible to very easily organise what you want to see on one page. Super handy when analysing and looking for a specific issue.

  3. Another way better working feature is the date picker. See the third screen shot.

  4. Also, you can now easily go from one page to the other, clicking the arrows left and right. See fourth screenshot.

  5. Lastly, the Selector is much more organised. See fifth screenshot.


So; not a question; this post is just to make sure all of you are aware of these improvements.


Best regards, Matthijs

Ps. There have been more improvements to the portal lately. Such as showing alarm status in red at the top and more. For a full list, see: https://www.victronenergy.com/live/vrm_portal:change_log

And a quite big improvement that I missed there above is that the better date picker is also available on the Main dashboard page. Easily go back or forward a day with the arrows:


Or open it up, and choose from the wide range of preselected date ranges:



(sorry to keep plugging these improvements, but I'm just really happy with them :-)

Great. I think VRM is perhaps Victron's greatest enduser asset. And I've seen this: "New advanced page: you can now put widgets next to each other and resize graphs on the advanced page"

How do you actually get those set up? Sure I'm stupid, like Forrest Gump, but I can't find how to make a combo page like you show. Even went to the website demo, but too clever for me, just defaults to my own user. No little triangles or so, but I surely noticed scaling changes and a lot of the other stuff.

Just a blind man who needs a bit of a cane. Probably over the backside, but I can't work it out..?

Whats your resolution? Might be that its too small for the resizing to show up. We are looking if we can support it for more screen sizes though, so stay tuned

1920x1080. It's not that. Just me, & an education void..

Hi @JohnC

Click the 'widgets' button to select what you want to see:

Widgets come down as they always have. I surely see the new & improved menu of em, but how do I arrange em? Like Matthijs did? This is what I see, can scroll down for more, but how to arrange? Err, yeh, a poor coupla solar days there for the observant.. :)

Ah... hover your mouse pointer anywhere on the top bar of a widget for moving. (you get a 'cross' arrow), and on the side of a widget for resizing.

No luck. Maybe it's my Firefox browser. Way too late here now, I'll try tomorrow. Thanks.

Partial success. In FF when I 'Enable Sidebar' I get it, but the Victron sidebar is gone, replaced with an FF one. Delete that and it all reverts to a mix of screen widgets of varying size, none with the little triangle.

In Microsoft Edge, I can get it for just a few seconds when I open/close 'Add Notes', but then reverts to full size, again no triangles.

So it's possibly a browser issue, in settings or even compatibility. Win10, and both those browsers are common. Can any browser expert expound?

Hmmm good catch, here I have to zoom in very far, once only one widget fits on the screen the triangle disappears.

Can you make a screenshot without the triangles? and tell what version of the browsers and what screen resolution you're using?

If you zoom-out, do they appear?

When I go to the ADVANCED page for my installation, I cannot see a Widgets selector. How can I make the Widgets selector visible?

Thanks - Michael.

Hi Michael,

If you can't see the widgets selector, it is mostly likely because you have monitoring access, but not full control of the site.

Please contact your installer and they can either enable the widgets for you, or increase your access level.

This is done in

VRM -> Settings -> Users menu.

I would like to have a widget that counts a summary of amount of energy produced today, yesterday. I can see it by selecting produced last 7 days but that is a little cumbersome. Or a number below the Pv charger current production on the CCGX display.

Hi Arke..

I would agree...this is a key information - perhaps Solar Yield (KWh) for every hour would be great, a cumulative for the day and for any given range of dates. At the moment, the Advance setting only have Solar Charge Summary which is transmitted at 5pm and shows the Total Yield for Yesterday and also Yield for Today as of 5pm only - this is not very useful as the solar panels are still producing energy??? Why not send it every hour !!!????

I am looking through some of the comments to see if I am missing anything but, I dont think I have.

I have a Lorawan unit connected to the VRM and this important information is not available at the moment ..and I dont know why it is not there??

Great, thanks! For me, the advanced monitoring options is a great added value of Victron over other brands.
