  • Access the "Reporting” section on the top menu.
  • Select the “Live" tab.
  • Click the "Edit" button [1] (this will place the dashboard into "Edit Mode").

  • Last 5 min
  • Last 30 min

Note: the above time metrics are refreshed every 2 minutes. 

  • Now: all live and current metrics refer to events occurring at the present time.

Graph Type

You can select from four available graph types: Donut, Metric, Gauge or List depending on the metric selected.


Target Threshold

Admins and Supervisors can also set the target thresholds to be displayed for each widget:

  • Widgets will have the ability to display warnings and alerts of the performance of a KPI against preset target thresholds. For each metric, you will have the option to set two thresholds - an upper and lower target.
  • Additionally, for widgets using the Gauge graph type, a minimum and maximum threshold value is required to be set.
  • To flip the direction of your metric thresholds, click the "reverse" icon.
  • Values must also be sequential (largest to smallest OR smallest to largest)
  • If lower target = upper target value, "yellow" range will not be shown.
