With Dashboards we can create within the platform several fully configurable and customizable information panels. In each of these, we can place one or more widgets, which will show us the information we have requested. With a few simple drag & drop gestures, we can configure the arrangement of each of the widgets within the panel to our needs.
We have five different types of widgets:
We must consider that we can activate several widgets of each of these types, since we can assign each one a different universe, that is, different segments of our digital circuit.
How to create a dashboard
Dashboard is a function included within the advanced tools of Admira, so it is not included by default in our Admira license, and we will have to request its activation. Once activated, we will see that a new section appears in the Admin > Manage column.
Once inside, if they have not created a panel for us before, we will see the completely empty section. To create a panel, we click on the Add panel button.
In the new window we can choose the name of the panel, if we want it as Main Panel and/or Floating Window. We can also select your visibility status:
We can also limit the visibility of public panels to certain users. To do this, we access Permissions Filtering, in the Users section of the person we want to limit.
Then we can uncheck the panels that we want to hide from it.
How to create widgets
Next we will have our first widget on the panel. To do this, we click on the Add widget floating button.
A floating window will appear in which we must select the type of widget we want to create, from among those we have described above.
In the next step we will be asked to define the universe, the part of our circuit about which we want to obtain the information. This universe can be all of our players or only those that interest us, because they have specific characteristics. To do this segmentation, we will use the Criteria Tags that identify our players.
We can create additional widgets, of another type and/or with different universes. They will be added just below the previous one, but we can move them by dragging from the upper left corner and change their size from the lower right corner.
How to create an Inventory widget
Inventory widgets are very configurable and practical, so they are created in a somewhat different way. A widget shows us the units of players that we have in our circuit, but we can segment it according to different criteria. We can also check its history, to monitor how our circuit has evolved at different times and ranges of time.
To configure the table that will show our Inventory widget, we will choose which Criteria Tags appear in the Rows and which in the Columns or Subcolumns. A very useful option is to create Criteria Groups so that they appear unified in the final table.
In the “Countries” Criterion we have a tag for each country, but in our panel we want to group them by the language in which they receive technical support. Thus, we can group the Germany, Austria and Switzerland tags into the same “German Speaking” group.
What information can we find in the widgets
Each widget contains the most relevant information about the different aspects of our digital circuit. Let’s take a look at the example of the Circuit Status widget, without a doubt one of the ones we will use the most.
This section offers us a complete overview of the player at the point of sale. The Admira Platform can identify three general connection status of our players, and other specific sections according to the number of hours of connection and if it has tickets under management:
As we can see, the table shows us the number of devices in each type of status, and the percentage of the total. We can also check it in the circular graph, if we hover the mouse over the sectors. This graph is interactive and dynamic, because if we click on one of the status it will offer us the details of the specific sections. If we still want to study more in depth, if we click on any of them in the table, it will take us to their details in the Issuance section of the Admira Platform.
In this section we can also filter by Criteria, to see the status of only a part of our circuit in general. And we can also select a specific date range, where we will be offered an evolution of the circuit during the selected dates. In this case we can alternate between a view with a pie chart or another with a bar graph that shows us this progress.
Summay and detail of widgets
Displays a graph showing devices with normal status and details of open incidents.
Classifies devices according to the relationship between theoretical airtime, based on a defined schedule, and actual airtime.
Summary of open incidents in the ticketing system with a summary of affected devices.
Buttons/tools/data summary providing more information about each widget
Hover over Details in the Incidents section for geolocalized cases and the information of each POS with incident details.
