Dashboards provide users with the ability to create their own view of asset data and to also create standardized views of their assets for others in their organization.


Dashboards are free form canvases that contain visualization panels on them to represent an overview of asset data. Users can adjust the panels layout and size on the canvas grid ("drag and drop"). There is a 12 column grid that the panels align to and also that enforces each panels' minimum and maximum width and height.

Dashboards can be edited by any user with access permission rights to it, including moving panels around, changing the sizes, and adding/removing panels.

To edit the layout and size of the panels, click the Lock icon to unlock the dashboard.

Template Linked Asset Dashboards

Assets that are linked to an Asset Template will have dashboards that are locked, only editable by the template managers. Additional dashboards can be added to these assets.

Default Dashboards

For assets created without an asset template, a pre-populated dashboard is created with the data from the asset (i.e. a default dashboard). The dashboard panels will populate as you build out your asset. This default dashboard contains:

Content Panel Description
Asset Signals Data Table All signals currently in the asset. More information about Asset Signal
Asset Metadata Meta Data Panel All metadata key-value pairs currently in the asset.
Asset Image Content Viewer - Image Viewer Displays the content, of type image, that has been designated as the "Asset Image". You can set your asset image either in the content tab of the dashboard, or on the Information screen of the Modify Asset area. More information about Asset Image
Asset Location Map Displays the location of asset. More information about Asset Location
Asset Logs Event Log All status changes resulting from a rule on the asset or manually added by a user More information about Asset Rules and the Event Log

As initially configured, these default panels will update as you update your asset (showing all signals, all meta, image, etc). You can edit layout or configuration of the panels at any time.

Creating Dashboards

An Asset or Group can have one or more dashboards, by default a new custom Asset has 1 to begin with called 'Custom' and Groups do not have a dashboard by default.

To create another dashboard for an Asset, click the plus button, select 'Add New Dashboard' and give it a name.

Dashboard Names and Order

Users can change the order of the dashboard or the names by using the 'Edit Dashboard Order' menu item.


Dashboard panels are visualizations that include types like gauges, a simple number, line charts, and image overlay. Each panel itself has its own configuration options including selecting the asset data to be used and other configurable parameters such as time scale for charts.


How many panels are supported on one dashboard?

Each dashboard supports up to 15 panels.

Exporting & Printing Dashboards

Dashboards can be exported using the 'Export Menu' icon in the upper right hand navigation. The export options include image, print, pdf, and two file output options CSV and JSON. When exporting the dashboard, it will use the current rendered data and visualizations as you see in the browser page.

This feature and specific export options may not be available on all solutions. Contact administrator for more information.

Export Method Description
PDF The PDF export options allow by default exporting the entire dashboard as a single continuous view into a PDF file, which will be downloaded to your computer via your browser. You can choose in PDF mode to use page breaks and adjust the resolution.
Image The Image export options exports the entire dashboard as a single continuous image (.jpg). Image quality is adjustable as an option.
Print This will bring up the print dialog for your browser and computer.
CSV The CSV export will generate a single CSV file. Each signal from each dashboard panel (for the panels that have signal data) is a column and all data at timestamps are rows, with the first column being the timestamps. If the dashboard panel has historical signal data, it will have many values in that column. If a panel has only one value (last value), it will have only one value in the column.
JSON The JSON export will generate a file that contains panel information and data values in JSON format

Shared Public URL Dashboards

Dashboards may be shared using a unique URL and a configurable password to allow viewing the dashboard without a normal user log-in. When using this shared dashboard URL, all navigation and editing access is removed.

Activating a Shared Dashboard Link

Dashboard Passwords

Shared dashboards require a password to help protect from being viewed by anyone on the public internet. It is also possible to allow dashboards with no passwords. This must be enabled by an administrator.

Administrators can enable public dashboards

Shared dashboard without a password (May not be available to all users)

Kiosk / Full Screen

Shared dashboards were also built for supporting kiosk and full-screen mode applications where the entire dashboard filling a screen is required. Shared dashboards auto-refresh the page every 10 minutes, panels receive real-time data updates, and does not require a user to log-in, keeping important user credentials off of computers driving kiosk displays.


ExoSense shared dashboards use the entire browser window. To make full screen, use the specific browser's configuration options including options to hide the browser's URL bar, bookmarks, etc. Commonly known as 'borderless' mode for a browser.

Group Dashboards

Dashboards can also be added at the group level and may contain information from assets within that group.


Users may specify any dashboard (and most other pages) that they have access to as a shortcut by using the feature in the upper right corner of the header page. These will be listed in the Shortcuts side navigation menu.


When assets are duplicated (used as a starting point for a new asset) or you are using Asset Templates, any dashboards associated to the original asset will be duplicated.
