Introduction

Dashboards are used in ServiceNav to visualize and act on the supervision data of a fleet of equipment. The dashboards therefore speed up the technical operation by allowing the operator to focus on his areas of interest.

This document explains how to configure and use the dashboards.

General principles

Models

The dashboards are visible in the Dashboard tab, which is the home page of the application.

The dashboards are built from dashboard templates. The following templates are available in the ServiceNav application:

  1. Tracking of the park by family
  2. Fleet tracking by service category
  3. Weather Services Map
  4. Equipment Map
  5. Mobile
  6. List of status

There is no limit to the number of configurable dashboards per user.

The reports displayed in the dashboards are taken from the application's real-time report database. They can be refreshed automatically or manually.

The model Tracking of the park by family allows you to view the status of a fleet by user, equipment or unit service status.

The model Fleet tracking by service category allows you to view the status of a fleet by equipment status or unit service.

The model List of status allows you to view the status of equipment and unit services in a park.

Configuration

The following items can be configured for a dashboard:

  • The title
  • Visibility: public or private
  • The possibility to include or exclude certain events by technical operation
  • The companies included in the dashboard, with the possibility to choose the companies by name, or by contract category (VIP) - for some dashboard templates
  • User services within the scope of the dashboard, selected by criticality - for some dashboard models
  • Equipment within the scope of the dashboard, selected by status, equipment criticality or equipment category - for some dashboard models
  • Unit services in the dashboard scope, selected by status, service criticality or service category - for some dashboard templates

Rights management

A dashboard is defined by a creator at account level. It is not inherited by the accounts subordinate to the company code.

The visibility rules are as follows:

  • All ServiceNav profiles that can access the Configuration > Reporting menu can set up a dashboard.
  • All users of a company have access to the "public" visibility dashboard definitions for that company. Private" visibility dashboards are only accessible to the creator users.
  • All ServiceNav profiles that can access the Dashboard tab can view the dashboard carousel and operate a selected dashboard in the carousel.
  • All users of a company have access to the "public" visibility dashboards of that company. Private" visibility dashboards are only accessible by the creator of the dashboard.

Using the dashboards

This section explains how to access the dashboard carousel and how to choose a dashboard element from the carousel. It details the different dashboard models and how to act on the supervised devices from a dashboard.

Dashboard carousel

The dashboards are visible in the menu Dashboard. This is also the home page after logging in.

When the user clicks on this menu for the first time after logging into ServiceNav, the first dashboard in the list of dashboards is displayed. The dashboards are sorted according to their title, in ascending alphabetical order.

When the user returns to this menu later, the dashboard displayed is the last one the user viewed.

The user can display a new dashboard by clicking on the button at the top right of the page: the carousel is displayed.

Dashboard: monitoring the fleet by family

This section describes the dashboard template Tracking of the park by family.

This dashboard shows the number of user services, equipment and unit services with their status for all the companies in the fleet.

Dashboard - park monitoring by family

Each line represents a company in the park and all its sites. The name of the company is displayed in the column Companies.

The column User services displays the number of user departments with the specified status. This number consolidates the statuses for the company code and sites.

The column Equipment displays the number of pieces of equipment with the specified status. This number consolidates the statuses for the company code and sites.

The column Unitary services displays the number of user departments with the specified status. This number consolidates the statuses for the company code and sites.

The ranking rule places the companies/sites on top of the dashboard that the operator should focus on. The ranking is done from the most critical status to the least critical status, and from user service to unit service. For the same status, the ranking is in alphabetical order.

The statuses are ranked from most critical to least critical:

  • red CRITICAL status
  • yellow Status ALERT
  • grey Status UNKNOWN
  • blue Status INDETERMINATE
  • green Status OK

Dashboard: fleet tracking by service category

This dashboard presents the list of the equipment of the park defined in the configuration.

Each line of the dashboard represents a piece of equipment and indicates: the name of the equipment, the company/site, the status of the equipment and the unit services.

The ranking allows the operator to focus on problems in descending order of importance, with the most important problems presented at the top of the dashboard. The degree of importance is deduced from the status of the equipment or equipment services, and the duration of that status.

The equipment is therefore ranked from top to bottom according to the following criteria:

  • redCRITICAL statuses from oldest to newest.
  • orangeALERT statuses from oldest to newest.
  • greyThe UNKNOWN statutes from oldest to newest.
  • blueINDETERMINATE statuses from oldest to newest.
  • greenOK statuses from newest to oldest.

The first column indicates whether the company or site is under a VIP contract or not.

Clicking on the name of the company or site allows you to navigate to the Supervision > Technical operation menu by positioning yourself on the corresponding site or company.

If in the dashboard the company is displayed in a red frame, it means that all equipment (not just those shown in the dashboard filter) in the company are in a status other than OK.

Clicking on the equipment opens a menu that allows the following actions:

  • Perform remote control at the company or site network level, according to the means configured at the company/site level.
  • Plan an immediate check of the equipment
  • Go to the equipment detail sheet

Dashboard - fleet tracking by service category - equipment menu

To configure the remote control, navigate to Configuration > General > Remote access.

By clicking on a number in the dashboard, a window is displayed showing the name of the unit service(s) in the category, the duration of the state, the date/time of the last analysis, and the result of the last analysis. Services are ordered from top to bottom in the list by decreasing criticality and decreasing report duration. The objective is to encourage the treatment of the most critical and oldest status.

By clicking on the name of the service, the user displays the details of the service.

Dashboard - fleet tracking by service category - service details

The user can click on the status of the unit service to acknowledge the event, or acknowledge the event and create a ticket in the ticket management system.

Dashboard - fleet tracking by service category - acknowledgement

To perform an immediate check, click on the last analysis time.

Dashboard - fleet tracking by service category - update service

The numbers displayed in each column identify the number of events with the most critical status for the category in the column. The '+' symbol indicates that there are other events with a less critical status.
