Populated Control Rooms

Once events begin flowing into your Control Room, it will look something like this. Everything remains the same, but we've got a few extra capabilities:

The Event Stream

  1. An event: The simplest building block of a Control Room. Events contain information, insights and actions. At minimum, events have a signifiance level (the coloured dot) as well as a title and description.

  2. An expanded Event: You can expand an event by clicking it. This will provide additional information about an event as well as actions you can take.

  3. Event Actions: Actions let you respond to an event

  4. Collapse: Easily restore an expanded event to its simple view by clicking the collapse bar.

  5. Zoom Controls: Zoom in or out!

  6. View All: Sometimes you want to get a sense of where all events are. Simply click this button to fit all events on the map.

Great, you should now be comfortable navigating a Control Room. Time to look at Assets.
