There are a few main parts in the Security Desk user interface: the area view, report pane, canvas, and dashboard. These components are displayed in most tasks. This section gives you a general overview of where these components are located in the user interface.
|A||Report pane||Displays information in the form of a table listing events, active alarms, or query results, depending on the task you are using. The information can appear as text or graphics (cardholder picture, timeline, thumbnails, and so on).|
|B||Dashboard||Contains widget commands related to the entity type displayed in the selected tile in the canvas.|
|C||Canvas||Allows you to view and control entities such as videos, tile plugins, road
maps, cardholder pictures, and so on. The canvas only appears in certain tasks.
There are two canvas display modes:
|D||Area view||Lists all the entities that are part of your system, and allows you to bring them into the canvas.|
|E||Hide dashboard||Click to hide or show the dashboard.|
|F||Hide area view||Click to hide or show the area view.|
