Tweak 'Alarms (Guages)' for Unusual Alarms



User story

Usual alarms showing on 'Alarms (guages)' on a map/wallboard to indicate whether it is usually low or high.

Details of user story

When using the gauges on a map/wallboard although the widget shows the beginning of the sentence '1 hour interval...' etc then truncates. It's unclear from this if it is unusually high or low, without hovering over it. Whereas on a wallboard, you wouldn't necessarily have a keyboard and mouse connected. This would make the user need to log in to the main page, and manually check for something that can pop up several times an hour for different sensors.

Acceptance criteria

  • Up or down arrow added under the 'U' (orange box) to indicate this - or similar.
