You can customize the Orion Web Console for individual users by creating views.

You need Administrator Rights to create views.

Check out this video on creating a new view.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console, and click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click Add New View in the Views grouping.
  3. Name the view, and select the view type.

  4. Click Submit.

You have now created an empty view. The Customize view page opens automatically. Add widgets that contain the information you want to see or add the view to a dashboard.

The Type of View affects how the view is made accessible to users, and your choice may not be changed later. For more information, see Specify views for device types.

After you have created a new view, you can customize which widgets are on the page.
