    Your dashboards

    AirVantage provides dashboards that are available troughout the product to provide greater insight into your systems.

    The Dashboards are configurable so you can get a quick look at the information that is the most important, in the correct context in your use of AirVantage.

    The start Page

    This main dashboard can display information about the fleet or about a single system you want to monitor closely. It provides the greatest variety of options to configure

    You can always access to the dashboard clicking on the AirVantage logo at the top left.

    The Systems Dashboard

    This page displays basic information about your systems at a glance.

    You can access it from Monitor > Systems.

    The System Detail View

    This page allows you to display information about the selected system, and provides system-specific widgets.

    You can access it from the previous dashboard and click on a system in the table.

    Organize your dashboards

    You can create multiple dashboards for the start page (fleet dashboard) and the system’s details page. The Monitor Systems view can just have a single dashboard. All accounts come configured with a dashboard that provide the most commonly used widgets, in a layout that is designed for most users.

    All dashboards are created as private (only available to you) and you have control to change the default dashboard to be displayed for a System or in the start page for all your devices. This enables you to:

    • Design one or more dashboards to address specific use cases
    • Use dashboard configurations temporarily or for more long-term requirements
    • Build multiple views of your fleet for a greater visibility

    To manage your dashboards, you can:

    • Create a new empty dashboard
    • Create a new dashboard from a current one: Clone an existing dashboard and modify it
    • Set the default dashboard to be one you have created or use the initial dashboard depending on your requirement
    • Delete a dashboard when you don’t need it anymore. If this is the current default dashboard, the new default one returns to the initial dashboard.

    Share your dashboards with your team and partners

    The list of dashboards can be accessed through the combo list on the top right of the dashboards. You access to the private and public repositories:

    • Initial dashboard: The initial dashboard can not be modified and this dashboard will be always available as is. If you want to modify it, clone it and edit the newly created dashboard. This dashboard is nammed Initial Dashboard.

    • Private Dashboards: By default, your dashboards are private dashboards. This means that you, and only you, can view, delete or update your dashboards. The first one shown when you display the page is the default dashboard. The default dashboard is identified with a 4 squares icon on the left.

    • Public Dashboards: You can share a dashboard to other user in your company (in a public repository). The dashboard is in read-only for all the users but the Administrators. See How to share a dashboard for more information. A public dashboard is identified with an eye on the left.

    Finally, you can transfer a dashboard to a partner. The dashboard will be copied to the new company as a public dashboard. If you modify the dashboard, the transfered dashboard will not be changed. See How to transfer a dashboard to a partner for more information.

    Use your dashboards in full screen mode with auto refresh

    Auto refresh mode

    The AirVantage dashboards use the available data when the dashboard is displayed so you can analyze your fleet or system status but by default but the data are not updated. If you want an up-to-date status displayed in the dashboard, you can use the auto refresh mode which updates the data in each widget at given period.

    This period is 1 minute at the minimum and can be configured according to your use case and device communication policy.

    24h after the login, the user must login again for security reasons.

    Full screen mode

    You may want users to view a dashboard without all of the navigation toolbars, menus, and panels of your browser. Hiding the navigation information:

    • Focuses attention on the data itself
    • Allows for easier analysis of the data by maximizing the number of widgets shown at the same time
    • Allows to share your metrics by casting your dashboard to a TV in a control center by using auto refresh and full screen modes all together.

    Design your dashboard

    To change the dashboard layout, you need to switch into ‘Edit mode’. Once in Edit mode, you can easily:

    • Change the name and the description which will be used in the dashboard list
    • Add or remove widgets
    • Resize existing widgets
    • Move widgets around to have the most important ones on the top and create a layout that works for you

    Add widgets

    Once in ‘Edit mode’, use the quick search drop-down box listing widgets by name, or select from the well-known widget gallery by clicking on the magnifying glass button. The widget will be added to the bottom of your dashboard. You can then move it where required, and do any widget specific configuration that is required.

    Once you are satisfied with the look and feel of the modified dashboard, click on Save button to validate your changes.

    Drag and Drop

    You can position the widgets as you wish to obtain the desired dashboard layout.

    Just drag a widget and drop it on an existing widget slot. Widgets are then automatically switched.


    Resize widgets as desired to get best visual effect or to best organize your dashboard.

    Remove widgets

    Remove widgets you don’t need.

    Duplicate a widget

    Click on Duplicate in the top right widget’s menu. The new widget will be added to the right of the current widget.

    Common Configuration for all the widgets

    Typing # will enable you to include variables inside your label like:

    • #sourceName: Name of the current datasource (company name if datasource is fleet, system name if you selected a system)
    • #dataAggregation: Type of aggregation (mean, sum, …)
    • #dataInterval: Time of aggregation (monthly, daily, hourly)

    Widgets have a wide range of configuration capabilities. Some are simple and require no configuration; some are more complex and require more information.

    Use widgets to filter entities

    Widgets can be used to filter entities.
    In the example below the systems with Good RSSI level are filtered clicking on the slice Good of the RSSI widget. All the pie charts offer this capability:

    Cellular Band Widget

    The Cellular Band widget is available in the ALMS offer for multi-radio routers running AirLink OS. It is not supported on ALEOS devices.

    The widget shows the current number and distribution (by percentage) of systems using each band. The data displayed is based on the system’s last recorded Band value.

    You can select the radio interface (Primary, INT/XP1, XP/XP2) for which to display band data.

    The 6 most represented bands are displayed, with the rest of the bands grouped under “Other”. However, if the “Other” category only contains 1 band datapoint, then the band will show as its own category instead of “Other”.

    You can view the “Other” bands by moving the pointer over the relevant segment.

    Time Display

    Date and time is displayed in relative time (for instance 10 minutes ago, not February 13th 2019 2:05 PM) along with the full UTC Date and Time displayed in a tooltip when hovering over it.

    Time display for each range is outlined in the table below:

    Range Key Sample Output
    0 to 45 seconds s seconds ago
    45 to 90 seconds m a minute ago
    90 seconds to 45 minutes mm 2 minutes ago … 45 minutes ago
