Mar 19, 2020: Decision Support: Creating Custom Dashboards and Real-time Widgets

One of the best parts about Contrail Dashboards is the ability to visually bring into focus, specific datasets that are important indicators for your operations and decision-making. You can gather a variety of related datasets (Widgets) to use on your Contrail Dashboard pages, so that all the data are available together in a single context. With Contrail Dashboards you can present the data that matter most to you to help in your day-to-day decisions, or even create a Dashboard “on-the-fly” during an extreme storm event so that you can track and monitor specific sites that may be of particular interest.

During this training session, we’ll show examples and give you lots of ideas to help you get started in creating your own Dashboard pages. 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
