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:
tile mode
Tile mode is the Security Desk canvas operating mode where the main area of the canvas is used to display the tiles and the dashboard.
map mode
Map mode is a Security Desk canvas operating mode where the main area of the canvas is used to display a geographical map, for the exclusive purpose of showing LPR events. This display mode is used in the Monitoring task, and in some LPR-related tasks.
D Area view Lists all the entities that are part of your system, and allows you to bring them into the canvas.
