Insert special character / mathematical symbol
I would like to insert character degree celcius and mathematical symbol into the point detail name properties. However I have tried the ASCII code input
alt + 248
alt + 241
,it does not give me the expected character or the symbol I want. Not sure I do anything wrong or the name property does not allow special character or symbol.
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

@desmond if you are going to do that, export your datapoint as JSON, paste it into notepad and edit with your alt + ###
Import this back into Mango under the "configuration Import/export" (/emport.shtm ) page.
This should do it for you... that is assuming this is the "name" property you are referring to.
Further down the page there is a units field which has a dropdown of alsorts of various measurement properties you can utilise, this will append a unit on the end of your value when you use the "renderedValue" attribute with ma-point-value or in charts.
In fact later I discover that it is possible to insert special character/symbol into the "name" property directly. I didn't do it correctly in my initial attempt.
Import/export configuration tool will be better method if there are numerous points name inserting any special character/symbol.
Thank you once again for your sharing and suggestion.
