The idea of dashboards is having all widgets constantly active and properly positioned when a system operator is on duty. Dashboards often open automatically once an operator logs in.
Unlike widgets, dashboards may contain tables, event logs, property grids, reports, system trees, and other elements. Widgets, in their turn, may include charts, maps, graphs, gauges, raster and vector images, video windows, and other UI components.
Dashboards are classified into:
- Overview dashboards (global)
- Asset-specific dashboards (per-device and per-resource)
While vertical market products based on AggreGate include a lot of out-of-the-box dashboards, all those dashboards are fully customizable, and new ones can be created from scratch as well.
