DashHub - Tile Configuration

Tiles are visual displays that can be set to your DashHub dashboard. There are four types of tiles; the ContextHub view tile, the TrendHub View tile, the Monitor / Alert tile and the Current Value tile. 

The tiles provide the content of your dashboard. Each tile is linked to a view created in TrendHub, ContextHub or a TrendHub Monitor, and enables you to bring all your views and monitors of interest together at one location. 

ContextHub view tile 

The ContextHub view tile enables you to visualise context data based on a saved context view. After selecting this type of tile in the "Create new tile" side panel and specifying the desired context view, a display mode can be chosen. There are three different display modes, each with their specific purpose: 

  • Count 
    The display mode "count" simply displays the number of context items within a certain context view in a clear way. This could for be used, for example, to monitor event types that represent critical issues, or keep track of the amount of batches produced by a production line over a given time period. 
  • Table 
    The "table" display mode allows you to directly embed a ContextHub table into DashHub. The table configuration (columns, sorting, etc.) is directly inherited from the corresponding context view. You can interacting directly with context items in the table, as clicking on any row in the table will open the context item detail panel. 
  • Gantt 
    Similar to the "table" display mode, the "Gantt" display mode will directly embed a ContextHub Gantt chart into DashHub. The Gantt configuration (timeframe, pinned rows, etc.) is directly inherited from the corresponding context view. You can interact directly with the context items on the chart, as clicking on any item will open the context item detail panel. 

Note: Some display modes are only available if the selected view meets certain criteria. The "Gantt" display mode is only available if the selected view contains a component filter.

Monitoring / Alert tiles

Alert tiles enable you to check visually the state of your TrendHub monitors based on the trigger criteria you set. When a monitor alert is triggered, the resumption of a "Normal status" will see the trigger reset.

You can create an alert tile in DashHub that provides a visual trigger when prescribed limits have been exceeded. For example, if a water tank level is low, you can create a tile that is connected to a monitor specifically set up to read water levels. When limits have been exceeded, the trigger is released and a visual alert is made.

Having opened a new dashboard:

1. Click on the action button on the top right of the screen to add a new tile.


A side panel appears from the right side of the screen.

When created the new tile is displayed on your dashboard, where it can be repositioned on the visual estate as preferred. 

Note: When you turn off the monitor in TrendHub, the associated DashHub tile will indicate the loss of connection. This in effect is an on / off switch.

Note: Your tile has a clickthrough to the monitor functionality, but only when the monitor is triggered. The clickthrough is to TrendHub at the time-frame where the monitor was triggered. 

Note: Only monitors based on a value based search and operating area search can be selected. Monitors based on fingerprints, similarity search and digital step search are not yet available.
