Description Usage Arguments Value Note See Also Examples

View source: R/monitor_asDataframe.R

Description

Creates a dataframe with data from a ws_monitor object, essentially flattening the object. This is especially useful when monitoring data will be shared with non-R users working with spreadsheets. The returned dataframe will contain data from the monitor specified with monitorID.

The number of data columns in the returned dataframe can include all metadata as well as additional calculated values.

By default, the following, core columns are included in the dataframe:

Any column from ws_monitor$meta may be included in the vector of metaColumns.

The following additional columns of data may be included by adding one of the following to the vector of extraColumns{}
