Breadcrumbs

The breadcrumbs allows you to navigate back to the previous screens as you drill down. You can also use the 'Back button' on your browser.

Date selector

The date selector allow you to choose either relative or absolute dates and times. Once selected the same time range is maintained as you navigate from one screen to the next.

Data refresh

This reverts back to the last hour from the current time.

Copy link

The copy link button allows you to copy a deep link URL to the current screen and time selection so that it can be shared with others. For example you could email, instant message or attach the URL in a support ticket and others clicking on the link will get to exactly the same view as you.

If you have a relative time period such as Last hour selected then the copied link will be a fixed time period of 1 hour from the time at which the button was clicked. This means the data could differ slightly from the screen you are looking at if there is a delay between refreshing the screen data and clicking the Copy link button.

Content Section

Collapsing widget panels

For any widget panel which has a minus sign in the top right hand corner it is possible to collapse the panel or expand it by clicking anywhere in the widget header. This is useful if you want to minimise certain widgets for example.
