Dashboard Widgets

Widgets are visual representations of individual items of Health and Performance metric data extracted from Data sources and Business Assets that you have configured on the system to which you are connected.

Widgets are added to a dashboard layout which can be customized to provide a unique, at-a-glance, real-time view of your business.

The following widget types are available in Insite

  • Chart. The Chart widget displays data from the selected datasource and business metric combination in the form of a chart based on an 'X' and 'Y' axis.
  • Status. The Status widget displays a colored, graphical representation of the current status of the selected datasource asset.
  • List. The List widget displays a list of data for the selected datasource asset.
  • Key Indicator. The Key Indicator widget is used to display summarized data of an important business asset.
  • Title. The Title widget is used to display your company’s branding to be able to share the contents on a big screen, to the higher business levels and in reports or presentations.

You can add as many widgets as you need to your dashboard. For many of the widgets, you can even add more than one of each kind. But, be aware that number of widgets on the page does affect the response time. Also, you can only add widgets to dashboards that you've created. Shared dashboards created by another user are view-only.
