Creation and organization of dashboards

How to manage dashboards in Data Analytics
Within Data Analytics, you can create several dashboards (digital parking & traffic scenarios) and organize them in Dashboard groups in order to keep a structured control of any Analysis across your parking areas or cities.

Create, edit and delete Dashboard groups

Dashboard groups are available to bring structure to your collection of dashboards. You can create dashboard groups on the top bar by clicking on the + symbol. Name your dashboard group and simply click on Save.
The Default dashboard group can't be renamed, either deleted.
By clicking on the dashboard group, you can simply navigate between the dashboards of each group. The groups are sorted alphabetically.
If you have chosen a group, you can edit the name by clicking on the pen next to the name.
By clicking on the x symbol at the Dashboard group navigation bar, you can delete the dashboard group. You will be asked to confirm the deletion.
Deleting a dashboard group will delete any dashboard linked to that group.

Create, edit and delete Dashboards

Dashboards can be created by clicking on New Dashboard. Each Dashboard has three tabs (Overview, Cameras and Configuration). At the creation of the Dashboard, you will be directed to the Configuration tab in order to set any specific information for your dashboard. After you have set your configuration, go to Cameras tab in order to add one or several cameras which should be taken into consideration for the dashboard.
As soon as you have allocated the cameras to the dashboard, you can start to create your dashboard by adding widgets in the Overview tab.
The overview tab will be your actual Dashboard where you can customize and analyze the data according to your needs.
See more information in the next section of the documentation.
You can add one or more cameras to your dashboard. This needs to be done in order to select from which cameras you want to analyze the data.
Select the cameras in the drop-down and click on add cameras.
Your cameras will then be displayed, and you will have the same view on the cameras as you have in the device configuration. You can see the frame of the camera and directly jump to the Scenario configuration where you can change the event type configuration.
Switch to Configuration
Name your Dashboard and give it a description in order to remember what the dashboard includes. Choose the Scenario according to the use case you want to cover with the dashboard. (Traffic, Parking or Generic)
The Scenario can't be changed in editing mode. So take care to choose the right scenario during dashboard creation
Link the Dashboard to the dashboard group of choice. The dashboard group you have been located in during creating the new dashboard will be the preselected group.
Paste the coordinates of the installation location to the dashboard configuration. The coordinates will help you to navigate across the dashboards on a map view. On top, the coordinates will automatically set the local time in your dashboard. If no coordinates are set the time will be displayed in UTC timezone.
For the Parking Scenario you can set further parameters. See more specific information on the dedicated Parking Scenario page.
A camera can be added to various dashboards. This will allow you to use cameras for multimodular purposes. E.g.: Having the traffic counted as well as the bicycle lane right next to it.
