SolarEdge with consumption monitoring. How to enable "Exported" column in PVOutput?

Hi,

I have basic PVOutput setup for months now with SolarEdge API key and I see the “Generated” column and it seems accurate.

However, I realized that I never had the “Exported” column showing any data nor do I get the “Temperature” column showing any data.

How do I configure PVOutput to show those column data?

I have a SolarEdge inverter with consumption monitoring. How to enable “Exported” column and “Temperature” column in PVOutput? Do I need to donate for those features?

Here is some more information of my current PVOutput configuration:
Automatic Uploads:
Primary Device: SolarEdge
Direction: Solar (looks like Solar and Consumption are the options here. If I choose Consumption will it do both generation and consumption and exported? What do Solar and Consumption settings do exactly?)
Poll Interval: 15 minutes
Energy: Disabled (should I turn this to enabled? what does this do?)
Temperature: Disabled (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Voltage: Disabled (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Extended v7: Disabled (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Extended v8: Disabled (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Extended v9: Disabled (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Rule: (blank)
Secondary Device: None (and dimmed, not able to be changed)
Weather Device: None (Options are: Ambient Weather, OpenWeatherMap, and Wunderground

Should I change any of the above to enable Exported and Temperature?

Changing to Consumption will only upload consumption.

Donators will have access to Both which will upload both solar/consumption.

You may change to Consumption to test if this works before deciding to donate.

Export is calculated when both consumption / generation are both available. Temperature is enabled automatically for donation accounts.

I have also set this up today and ticked the “Both” box, but it doesnt seem to be working. I made a donation before setting it up.

‘Both’ only works for Smapee and Energo.

You’ll need to setup primary and secondary device with Solar and Consumption.

Using the same inverter? Is there a screenshot showing how that is setup?

Thanks BB. All working beautifully now.
