Dashboard overview & Widget creation

How to manage Widgets in Data Analytics Dashboards

The dashboards are created for your specific scenario (Traffic, Parking or Generic). In order to show valuable data with a low effort, the widget options vary per scenario.

The Dashboard overview can be customized with your widgets according to your needs. On the top left, you can select the time frame filter, which will be applied to any widget in this dashboard. The time filter is persisted individually for each dashboard on your browser. So as soon as you open the dashboard again, your last time filter will be applied.

You can move widgets across your dashboard by simply dragging and dropping them. The size of the widget can be adjusted by using the left bottom corner.

On top, you have a full-screen option on the top right in order to display the widget dashboards in full size on your screen.

Widget creation

In order to create a new data widget, you can click on New Widget. In the widget creation process, the selection options vary per widget type. The widget type options depend on the scenario you have chosen for your dashboard (Parking, Traffic or Generic).

Below, you can find the description of different selection options at the widget creation process. This will give you an overview of the result of the selection options. (* mandatory)

  • Widget Name* - You can name your widget as you want. The name will be displayed for each widget on your Dashboard Overview.

  • Data aggregation - You can choose on which time frame your data should be aggregated. You can aggregate your data per hour, day, week, month and year. E.g.: You choose to aggregate your data per day for a traffic counting use case, all the counts of the day will be summed.

  • Data segmentation (split by) - You can split your data on given parameters of the created events. E.g.: You want to see the counts per day split per class and subclass? So you need to choose the data segmentation fields class and subclass.

  • Filter data - In order to narrow down your data you can filter on the given parameters by using one of the following operators: contains, does not contain, equals, does not equal, is set, is not set

  • Define Output* - For displaying your data in the right output, we have different options based on the widget types.
