    Article summary

    This page shows you the Dashboard. The Dashboard is a visual display, showing up to six charts at once; providing you with real-time updates for key performance indicators in your service desk. There are many available charts that you can choose to show on the Dashboard. You can also create multiple pages of charts, four or six to a page, and cycle through them. For a full list of available charts, go here.

    The following page describes the UI as seen in Cloud editions. If you are using an On Premise edition, click here.


    On any chart, click   to view that chart in full screen. You can also click  to view a list of all items that the chart reports on (e.g. click on the Active Service Records chart to see all SRs included in the calculation for this chart).
