Managing dashboards

Dashboards are available for the whole database, or individual segments. See Reports and dashboard analysis for a summary of the type of information that dashboards include.

Using dashboards

Dashboards are divided into individual panels, which are made up of charts, graphs and other graphical representations of the available data. The contents of a dashboard are determined by us during system configuration.

Dashboard panel controls

Towards the top right of each dashboard panel are a series of controls that enable you manage the displayed information. While the available controls vary according to the type of chart, you can, for example:

  • Save the relevant chart in PNG format.
  • Save the relevant chart to a cloud location for later editing.
  • Pan the displayed information.
  • Zoom in or out.
  • Autoscale the chart.
  • Reset the axes.
  • View additional information when you hover your mouse over a particular area of the chart.

Example of the additional information that is displayed when hovering the mouse

A screen tip displays when you position your mouse over a particular control icon, which describes what it does.
