The Dashboard is the first page you’ll see when you log in and should be used to convey your most vital data quickly and efficiently.
You can have as many dashboards as you like, all completely configurable to represent any number of combinations and data points. All created dashboards will appear in the drop down menu in the top left and more can be created by the Create Dashboard option directly to the right.
*Any changes made to a dashboard will be reflected in all other users' views. For this reason it is recommended that users abstain from tweaking shared dashboard configurations without unanimity.
There are 5 tile types to choose from, all of which can be created, arranged, enlarged/shrunk and edited as you see fit;
- Pie Chart
- Horizontal Bar Charts
- Vertical Bar Charts
The example below displays a simple dashboard setup, displaying overall activity with the Pie Chart and Bar chart, a rolling look back at the previous two weeks via the Histogram and on the left a set of simple Counters representing Failures, Warnings and No Results.

The dashboard isn’t simply for show however, it is the first step to investigating your results. All tiles are interactive and can be used as an access point to the Audit screen.
In the example below we’re going to investigate the failure Count by clicking the ‘1’.
This will bring you to the Audit screen, displaying the one failure we had yesterday. Using the dashboard as an entry point to the Audit page pre-populates the filters to match whatever settings the tile had.
To load a Dashboard into full screen mode you can click the Present Icon:
You can edit or refresh an individual existing tile by selecting the cog (top left) or the clock face (bottom left) respectively.
