Saving and Loading Dashboard Settings

You can view the Dashboards layout according to your own settings. The layout includes the element positions, elements included in the view, the period, the series, the zoom factor , the hidden/shown element types. and the hidden/shown correlation factors. The Dashboard Settings define both the QPR Metrics client's and Web Client's Dashboards layout.

 

If you do not have your own settings (i.e. you are a new user/ web user or the model is new) the default settings are used if the default settings have been saved. If there are no default settings, settings called "Basic View" are used for the layout

 

You can save your view with the Dashboards View Menu button btn_view_settings. To use a previously saved view, select it using the drop down list box located at the Dashboards View Menu.

Note: If you have made changes to the Dashboards view (including moving or hiding elements), you will be asked a confirmation whether you want to save the view when you exit the view.
