DashHub - Tile Configuration

Tiles are visual displays that can be set to your DashHub dashboard. There are four types of tiles; the ContextHub view count 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 count tile

The ContextHub view count tile enables you to visualise the number of context items in a saved context view. After selecting this type of tile in the "Create new tile" side panel. 

The ContextHub view count tile is one that enables you to monitor, for example, the number of context item views created for a particular item type. Select a view during tile creation process and the number of items contained in that view is the number highlighted in your Context Item tile.

Having opened a new dashboard:

1. Click on the action tile towards the top right corner of the screen, to add a new tile.


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

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.

5. Select colors of the icons for normal and abnormal states.

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.
