Dashboard Component Permissions

In Fortix the dashboard provides at-a-glance views of different areas in Fortix relevant to a particular objective or business process for the user.

The "dashboard" is usually displayed on the home page which is linked to a database that allows the components to be constantly updated.

For example, the SMS Log component can show the received SMS messages. The Dashboard components are permission-based.

This article explains how to add the permissions and the component to the Dashboard.

To set-up the different components to display on the Dashboard or rearrange the order they appear, click the Dashboard Setup.

The address bar link is /?dashboard_setup

The two columns represent the components on your dashboard.

You can move them around freely by dragging and dropping them with your left mouse button.

To add a new component, click the plus sign.
