Editing dashboards

Editing an existing dashboard can involve changing the dashboard's settings, editing the rows on the dashboard, or maniuplating the time frame setting/refresh interval.

Settings

Edit dashboard settings

  1. On the main navigation menu, under Dashboards, select a favorite dashboard. If you have no favorite dashboards, click Dashboards to open the Dashboard Management screen.
  2. Optionally, edit the name of the dashboard by clicking the Edit icon next to the dashboard name in the upper right hand corner.
  3. Optionally, favorite the dashboard (if you haven't already) by clicking the .
  4. Click on the dashboard settings icon located to the right of the Time Frame.
    Tip   Click Copy to open the Copy Dashboard window where you can copy the current dashboard to your dashboards. After confirming the name of your copied dashboard, you'll be taken directly to the copied dashboard.
  5. Edit the row wrapping, widget headers, privacy settings, and/or enable Fullscreen Mode.
    • Row Wrapping: The Row Wrapping setting controls the width of each row. By enabling row wrapping, you are forcing the width of the row to be only as wide as the screen, so widgets will automatically wrap and fill the screen. By disabling row wrapping, you are allowing the row to continue outside the screen indefinitely (no wrapping).
    • Widget Headers: The Widget Header setting controls whether the widget title and menu are displayed. "Visible" will show the widget header, allowing you to see the widget's title and edit the widget. "Hidden" will not show the widget header, saving you some room on your dashboard.
    • Share With: Only You represents private dashboards that can only be seen by you. Everyone represents public dashboards that create a copy of the dashboard for each of the users under a tenant; other users can edit and delete the dashboard if they wish without affecting the original dashboard.
    • Fullscreen Mode: Fullscreen Mode makes your dashboards take up the entire screen. You can also enable all of your dashboards to cycle through after a set number of seconds (the default is 60 seconds; the minimum is 20 seconds).
    • Rotate ★ Dashboards: If you have fullscreen mode enabled, it will only rotate through your favorite dashboards if this option is selected.
    • Theater Mode: Hides the top navigation menu.
  6. Click Save.

Rows

You can edit a row by adding widgets, hiding the row, or deleting the row. To learn more about editing widgets, see Editing Widgets or the widget library documentation.

Tip   Click Add Row at the bottom of the dashboard to add a new row.

Edit a row

  • Click the edit icon at the start of a row.
    A menu will appear.
    • Click one of the height options to change the height of your widgets for the entire row.
      • Small (S): Makes the widgets' height 25% of your browser window.
      • Medium (M): Makes the widgets' height 33% of your browser window.
      • Large (L): Makes the widgets' height 50% of your browser window.
      • Extra Large (XL): Makes the widgets' height 100% of your browser window.
      • Custom: Type the pixel height desired for the row.
        Note   A message will replace the widget's display if the height is too small for the widget to properly to display.
    • Click Add Widget to open the Widget Library. The added widget will be inserted at the end of the row.
    • Click Hide to hide the entire row.
    • Click Delete Row to delete the entire row.

Moving Widgets

You can move widgets to different positions within a row.

  1. Click and hold on the icon next to the widget's name .
  2. Drag the widget on top of another widget (it will be highlighted) to take that widget's place.

Time Frame/Refresh Interval

Adjusting the dashboard's Time Frame and/or Refresh Interval setting can affect the range of data displayed in some widgets on your dashboard.

  • To adjust the range of data displayed, edit the Time Frame setting for the dashboard.
  • To change how often the data is updated, edit the Refresh Interval for the dashboard.
Important    Two widgets behave differently in regards to the Time Frame setting:
  • The current value for the metric in the Metric Status widget is not affected by the Time Frame setting. It will always reflect the most recent five minutes of data.
  • Clicking the refresh button in the Time Frame will refresh the data in the Group Status widget. However, the Group Status widget always displays the most recent 5 minutes of data, regardless of the Time Frame setting.

Edit the Time Frame setting

  1. In the Time Frame, select a period of time between 1 hour and 1 week. Selecting "1h" displays the most recent hour of data.
  2. Optionally, click to specify an end date other than today.
  3. Data will automatically reload to reflect your changes.
    Example(s)    Assume that it is now 12:00 PM on January 8th. If the ending date in the Time Frame is set to today, selecting 1w allows you to view the most recent week of data. This means the data displayed is between 12:00 PM on January 1st and 12:00 PM on January 8th (now). Or, if you select 1h in the Time Frame, you can view data collected between 11:00 AM on January 8th and 12:00 PM on January 8th (now).

Edit the Refresh Interval

  1. Open the Ending Date Time Settings by clicking .
  2. Under Refresh Interval, select Never, 5 Minutes, 10 Minutes, or 15 Minutes to indicate how frequently data should automatically refresh.
  3. Close the Ending Date Time Setting window to save your changes.
