Introduction to Custom Views

Custom Views are saved filtered searches that can be created for Tickets, Assets, and Users. You can create new views from the left sidebar. Clicking the New View button will open the View Designer window.

From here you will be able to add filters to curate the data set for your custom view. Tickets, Assets, and Users can be filtered by a number of variables. In addition to using filters to curate the appropriate data set, you have the ability to further manipulate the view of your data by sorting, reordering, and hiding columns within the view.

 General Tab

This tab of the View Designer is where you can name your custom view as well as apply filters by using the Add Filter button.

This will open up the filter selection window. You can use the left column to narrow down your filter category and then select what filter type you'd like to use from the options on the right side of the window.

Next, you'll be asked to select the specific data you'd like to display from the chosen filter category. Alternatively, you can select the Exclude checkbox to search for all tickets that do not match your selected criteria.

After hitting Save Selection, you'll see your filter displayed above the list of tickets in your view. You can continue to use the Add Filter button to apply multiple filters to your view, allowing you to be as broad or as specific as needed.

You can quickly add and delete columns of data as needed. Additionally, you can change the order of your columns in your custom view by rearranging the data options listed underneath Selected Columns. Please note that the top to bottom ordering of this list will translate to a left to right ordering of your custom view columns.

The options at the bottom of this tab allow you to select what data you would like to sort your view by as well as the total number of items you'd like to see displayed on the page.

 Sharing Tab

You can share any saved custom view you've already created using the Sharing tab. This gives administrators and agents with the correct permissions an easy way to design and push out views they feel would be helpful to agents around the district.

Using the drop-down menu you can select the desired user(s) you wish to share your view with. Once added, these individuals will see this view appear alongside their own custom views.

Adding Custom Views to your Dashboard

Custom views can be added directly to your Incident IQ dashboard, allowing you to access the views most relevant to your work as soon as you log in. To begin editing your dashboard, access your profile options in the upper-right corner of Incident IQ.

The dashboard designer will be displayed. Your custom views will be displayed as Available Components at the bottom of the dashboard designer. When added to your Dashboard Layout, you can then select one of the following widths for the view:

          +50% width

          +66% width

          +100% width
