Adding a custom chart widget to your dashboard follows similar steps as creating a section of a chart and pivot report, which will be covered later. This section will appear on your dashboard, which you can customize to your needs. To do that:
1.On the dashboard, click Edit in the top right hand of the screen.
2.Click Add widgets, then Configurable Chart Widget.
3.Enter a Widget title and a Widget sub-title if appropriate. Optionally, you can link your widget out to a report from within the Report Center.
4.Select a data source from the drop down list.
5.Select an organization and organization group, if applicable to your environment. These help to narrow down the scope of your reports.
6.Select a chart type. You can read more about chart types in the Quadrotech Nova Reporting Guide.
NOTE: Only charts and pivots can be created for use in the dashboard. To create a report using any type of data presentation, use the Report Center.
7.Once you have selected your chart, choose an Operator. Operators are:
a.Average: This is calculated by dividing the total of all of the values by the number of values.
b.Count: The quantity of values in a data set.
c.Sum: The result of adding together the values in a data set.
d.Min: The smallest value.
e.Max: The largest value.
8.Select an Applied to data field. This is your Y axis. You can use the search boxes to find the exact data field you need, or filter by data type or data source.
9.Choose a Series name data field. This is your X axis. You can search for this the same way as the step above.
10.Optionally, choose a category. You can search for this the same way as step 8.
11. Add a filter group, if desired. Filtering allows you to narrow down the scope of your report. For example, you may only want to view users within a certain department or geographical location.
12.You can sort your data, if needed. Similar to step 8, you can search for a data field you would like to sort by ascending or descending order.
13.Set an offset. This is the starting record of your widget.
14.Set a limit. This is the maximum number of records returned within your widget.
NOTE: When downloading a section, this limit is ignored.
15. Select or deselect Overflow. This gathers data outside your limit into one section of a chart.
16.Choose your drill down fields.
17.Click OK, and your widget should appear in the dashboard. Click Save in the top right hand corner to finish the section.
If you would like to see a card presented on your dashboard, follow these steps:
1.From the dashboard, click Edit in the top right hand of your screen.
2.Click Add Widgets and select Card Widget.
3.Name your widget, and give it a sub-title if necessary.
4.Create your card as you would with the steps above, and click OK.
Your card should now appear within the dashboard. If you have set analytics on your card, your card should display the color affiliated with the analytic you inserted.
NOTE: You are able to move your card in the dashboard to a place of your convenience. Also, you are able to resize the widget to your standards. For more on Nova dashboards, click here.
Users can view maintenance and incident reports straight from the Nova dashboard. This allows users to get a quick look at the outlook of their Office 365 services.
To add the Service Status Widget do the following:
1.Go to your Nova Dashboard, and click Edit.
2.Click Add widgets.
3.Find the Service Status widget. This will then appear in your Nova dashboard.
Microsoft has several different interfaces for tools used to perform Office 365 management, reporting, and auditing tasks. In contrast, Nova users perform that work in a single user interface.
To achieve this, Nova gathers reporting and auditing data from Office 365. Reporting data is collected about every 24 hours and auditing data is received from Microsoft when it becomes available. This data is stored in Nova for as long as the organization remains a subscriber, which is much longer than Microsoft typically stores this data in Office 365.
The flexibility and power of the Nova Report Center is ideal for organizations with custom reporting needs that can not be fulfilled by the standard reports available in Nova. To create a report with the Report Center, you specify:
1.How you want the report to look. You decide what sections the report contains. Will it have charts, graphs, maps, or tables that will display the information?
2.The types of data the report will display. These are called data sources.
3.Any filters you want to apply against the data sources. For example, your data source might be a list of Azure AD users. You might want to filter that list, so your report only shows users in North America or a certain department.
Just like other Nova reports, the reports created using Report Center can be saved, scheduled, and shared. If you do not want to build an entirely new report, you could even clone an existing report and customize it to meet your new needs.
Below is an example of a report built using Report Center.
