Overview

In many situations, the information that we provide in a dashboard requires context for a better and common understanding, namely:

  • The basic steps of an incident response. To be successful when responding to an incident, the process has to be well documented, so teams can perform a coordinated and organized response to it.

  • Description of business metrics. Some patterns, outliners or insights are already identified by the BI team or analysts, so the rest of us can easily understand the indicators.

  • Instructions on how to proceed with tight SLAs. Thus, Service Desk teams know how to react or balance the team capacity, so they don’t breach SLAs.

  • A project summary. No need for a comprehensive description of the entire project, but the overview and a link to the full description.

  • Or many other cases such as security reminders, corporate policies, announcements, etc.

This gadget allows users to provide contextual information to your dashboards. The rich content supports formatted text, links, emojis, lists, images, videos…
