Using Dashboards

The Dashboard enables you to graphically view the status of several business processes on a single Web page and to monitor the progress of these processes.
Each time a process instance is created, Business Process Portal enters the data in a default Dashboard Table, or updates the data in an existing Dashboard table after a delay, which is configurable. You can view this information in the Dashboard page. However, you must log out and log in to Business Process Portal again to see changes in a database reflected in the Dashboard.
Default dashboard widgets shows only a maximum of 50 records. This is because loading all the records for tasks, instances and alerts portlet affects the dashboard response time.
Business Process Portal supports the following types of widgets.
*Graphical — The widget information is provided in the form of a chart. For example, pie, bar, funnel and so on.
*Tabular — The widget information is provided in tabular format.
*Infopad — Displays infopad information of the selected application.

*Global Dataslot — Displays the global dataslots values for the application.
Note: You can modify the Global dataslot values from portal for that application.
