Dashboard Layout

Dashboard Layout

Dashboards are on a next-gen grid based layout which can include a variety of objects such as images, graphs, and logs. They are commonly used as status boards or storytelling views that update in real-time or represent fixed points in the past. They also work well for debugging.

To switch from the Timeboard layout to the Dashboard layout, use Pick Layout in the cog menu and select Grid.
