The Dashboards task is an operation task that provides a blank canvas on which you can pin widgets, including Security Center tiles, reports, and charts. These widgets track key indicators, and provide an overview of the activity and events recorded by the system.

Security Center dashboards have a broad range of uses. You can use them to:

  • Create a command and control dashboard to help you monitor events, and dispatch guards.
  • Track key performance indicators, such as the number and type of incidents, or wait times in queues.
  • Monitor system health, from important health events to the availability statistics of system hardware and software.
    NOTE: A default Health dashboard is available as an operation task to monitor your system health information.

By customizing a dashboard to your needs, you can easily monitor the information that matters to you.

Dashboard configurations can be saved as public tasks or private tasks in Security Desk. Your dashboard can be personal, or shared with an entire organization.
