Dashboards
are dynamic report-building pages in the Performance Center Console. Dashboards are accessible from the
Dashboards
tab (CA PC) or
Reports
tab (NPC). Each dashboard is a collection of views that present data from registered data sources on a single web page. The layout, views, time interval, and group context of each dashboard can be customized.
Your user account role rights determine the dashboards that you can see.
Reports
are static output from an on-demand selection or an exported dashboard page. Reports that you export from a dashboard create a static data set from the data and information in the associated dashboard. On-demand reports capture a data set from a single managed item or group in the Inventory. You can print reports, send them by email, or export them in CSV or PDF format. For each format, the report captures a selected data set.
Dashboards are organized in menus.
Menus
in the Performance Center Console are lists of items in the
Dashboards
tab (CA PC) or
Reports
tab (NPC). Menus group similar dashboards or report pages together. By default, Administrators and Designers can customize menus and assign them to user account roles.
Performance Center has a set of built-in dashboards and menus, which are available for use immediately after your administrator registers the product as a data source. Users who have the required role rights can customize dashboards, menus, and views to create a custom system for individual operators.
The menus and dashboards that are available to you are displayed when you hover over or click the
Dashboards
or
Reports
tab.
