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, so 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

Managing Recipients for Automated Alarm Notifications
Contrail's administrative interface enables configuring of alarm rules based on user-defined alarm thresholds. Recipients and delivery method of alarm notifications are designated when creating alarm rules. The "Contacts" and "Groups" feature in Contrail makes it easy to manage the contacts and recipients of triggered alarm notifications. This session will cover:

  • How to add new contacts
  • Create groups based on roles, departments or teams (e.g., flood control, emergency responders, water quality, maintenance, etc.)
  • Manage Group members
  • Update, replace or remove a contact
  • Examples of assigning an alarm notification and delivery types

Writing Effective Alarms with Contrail's Alarm Manager
You'll learn how to create user-definable rules for alarms to notify via text message and e-mail. Contrail provides a powerful Equation Functions toolset for identifying conditions of interest. Administrators can easily create customized rules to trigger an alarm for any sensor or group of sensors within your program. You can have different message delivered to different people all from the same triggered event—send a short mobile-text message to your on-call staff, send a longer descriptive email to managers that includes Emergency Action Plan (EPA) information, send a message to a different department, or send no message at all.

In this session, we'll write alarms around a number of different scenarios and show tips and shortcuts for making alarm rules based on data from multiple sensors at multiple sites.
