This template belongs to the Dashboard category in Service Apps templates. This enables you to install a group of dashboards displaying indicators and reports related to ITSM processes, e.g. incidents, requests, problems, etc.

It is shipped in a unique version that is:

  • Responsive: Automatic scaling of the app based on the device used, e.g. workstation, smartphone, tablet, etc.
  • Multilingual: The six main languages managed by Service Manager are supported in the standard version.
     

Caution

  • The installation of the template requires importing reports in Service Manager. This action overwrites the parent queries. To keep your existing parent queries, some views, tables, and fields must be added to the database Service Manager. Open url.png See Importing reports step of the procedure.
  • Perform these operations only during the first installation of the template; you can then download new versions without having to repeat them.
