Situational Awareness: Creating Custom Dashboards and Real-time Widgets in Contrail for Decision-Support 

The idea of Contrail Dashboards is to visually bring into focus, specific datasets that are important indicators for your operations and decision-making. You can gather related datasets (Widgets) to use on your Contrail Dashboard pages, to that all the data are available together in a single context. Contrail Dashboards enable you to present the data that matters most to you to help you in your day-to-day decisions, or create a Dashboard "on-the-fly" during an extreme storm event to track and monitor specific sites that may be at high risk of flooding.

During this training session, we'll look at some typical examples and show you:

  • How to create custom dashboard pages that contain an arrangement of one or more Widget types
  • How you display each Dashboard in the Administration environment only, or share a Dashboard with your general users
  • How to turn on or off Dashboard displays
  • How to edit, preview, copy or delete defined Dashboards
  • How to arrange, edit, copy or delete Widgets from within a Dashboard
