Administrators and users with Editor permission can design dashboards in IT Expert and set a default dashboard for the organization to get an instant overview of the most important information.
You can create location-specific dashboards and widgets that show graphs for sensors from monitored devices or key values based on a single sensor.
|Use quotes to filter lists by exact phrase. For example, "phase 3"|
Create a dashboard
Log in to IT Expert as an Administrator.
Click New... in the upper right corner.
Name your dashboard and select a time span.
Now you're ready to add widgets to the empty dashboard.
Add widgets to the dashboard
You can add three different types of widgets to your dashboard: graphs; single values; or one of the default widgets, Map, Alarm count, Latest alarms or Critical alarm history.
If you want a visual overview of one or more sensors from your monitored devices, add a Graph to your dashboard.
This example shows battery time remaining for three different UPSs in a graph.
Click Add widget > Graph.
Name your widget and go to Add value > Sensor to find the sensors.
Select the sensors from the list you want to monitor. Use the search bar above the list or the filters to the left to narrow the selection.
Add names for the legend and click Add.
Tip: You can choose to hide or show the legend and the x or y axes on the graph.
Remember to Save the dashboard!
If you want to see key values based on single sensor values, you can add a Single value to your dashboard.
This example shows battery time remaining for three different UPSs as single values.
Click Add widget> Single value.
Name your widget and go to Add value > Sensor to find the sensor.
Select the first sensor you want to monitor and click Save.
Name the legend and click Add.
Repeat step 1 - 4 to add single value widgets for the remaining sensors.
Don't forget to Save the dashboard!
You can also add preconfigured ready-to-use widgets to your dashboard. Click Add widget and select from the following:
- Alarm count
- Latest alarms
- Critical alarm history
Set a dashboard as the default for the organization
Administrators and users with Editor permission on All locations can set a dashboard as the default for the organization.
Click Default on the dashboard to select or deselect a dashboard as the default.
The dashboard you set as the default displays for all users in your organization when they log in to IT Expert. Otherwise, the Overview dashboard is displayed.
