Feature Focus: Extending Software Intelligence insights by leveraging the Custom Dashboards feature
How to create your first custom dashboard
Custom dashboards can be created by any user. Depending on your user role, your custom dashboard will be visible to you only or to other users. From the menu, go to Dashboards > Custom Dashboard and click on the ‘+’ icon.
As you switch from an indicator to another, the bubble chart is instantly updated to view the change.
Finally – probably the most exciting and important step to ensure that your custom dashboard will provide meaningful insights for other users – you can also define labels for each of the four quadrants that correspond to a possible decision when an application falls in this bucket.
Once you’re done with all the elements of the custom dashboard you’re ready to show your favorite CIO to let him/her know which apps to retire or move to the Cloud, don’t forget to save it by clicking on the disk icon. 😉
