To stop getting notiﬁcation messages enter /stop. Also you can get some information from your project. To get possible command write /info:
Enter /tags to get current values of tags.
Enter name of the tag used in your project. You’ll get information about value of this tag and if this tag supports history you’ll get trend for last hour. You can choose other period by clicking proper button.
