Dashboard interface description

The indicators on dashboard pages are displayed in tiles arranged on a grid of rows and columns.

Each tile contains a visual representation of one or more performance or availability indicators.

  • The color of an indicator reflects its state: neutral, positive or negative.
  • The default size of a tile is one space on the grid. Tiles can be sized to occupy multiple spaces and moved anywhere on the grid.
  • A dashboard can have any number of rows. Only 4 rows are displayed at a time. You have to scroll to view additional rows.
  • Dashboards are limited to 6 columns.
  • Dashboards resize to accommodate browser geometry but are designed for use on computer monitors, not mobile devices.
