Dashworks Release Notes 5.3.4

Dashworks Release Notes - Kepler

Executive Summary

The shift of many organisations to an Evergreen IT model has brought an onslaught of iterative change within the desktop environment. There are now frequent and concurrent projects being run, all with very different requirements. Dashworks now has readiness at the project level giving PMs the finer control they need to meet these requirements project by project, without cross impact. Evergreen dashboards continue to be improved, and this release brings a wealth of new functionality in this area. The most noteworthy of these is drilldowns, making a rich layer of detail available to each chart.


Project Readiness


Previously, although the red/amber/green readinesses in Dashworks were configurable these were defined once in the system for all projects to use. Now you can define completely different sets of readinesses for use in different projects. You can add an unlimited number of different readinesses to each of projects, choosing from 12 different colour templates.

Dashboard Drilldowns


Dashboard widgets can now be linked to their underlying data. Setting Drilldown to Yes for a widget means that data points in the chart, table or card can be clicked on to get more information. The user is then routed through to an Evergreen list of objects that were aggregated to make that number or chart segment. An example of this would be a bar chart that showed a count of devices by device type, e.g. 480 virtual devices, 1003 laptops, 394 desktops. Clicking on the bar for the virtual devices would show you a detailed list of 480 virtual devices in your environment.
