EV Observe - Widget Library

Last modified on 2023/08/02 11:44

The widget library groups all widget types that can be used for creating a Dataviz (business dashboard).

  • Each type of widget is used to display raw monitoring data in a readable manner using charts, gauges, lists, geographical maps, etc. Open url.png See the list
  • You format the data layout using widgets that have contextual properties specific to the corresponding widget type. Open url.png See the relevant documentation for each type of widget

Notes

  • Widget types are created and maintained by EasyVista.
  • The procedure for adding a widget to a Dataviz and the actions that can be performed will depend on each type of widget. Open url.png See the relevant documentation for each type of widget

Caution

  • Certain types of widgets are based on reports, such as Widget reports. If this is the case, you must add and format widgets in the Dataviz menu. However, you must define their scope in the Configuration > Reporting menu.
