Nova can show a dashboard containing useful metrics related to your organization. Dashboards can be customized, they auto-refresh, and you can turn them into a visual display for a help desk, call center, or network operations center.

Example dashboard

Here is an example of a dashboard that shows information about an Office 365 tenant:

Interacting with the data

Many of the charts allow you to hover on segments and drill down to get more detail. For example, where we see the number of users who changed their password within a certain period of time, you can hover on that and you’ll see the precise amount of users who changed their password.. Some other charts have a More button, which takes you to additional detail.

Editing a dashboard

Dashboards can be edited and customized to meet your needs. You can change the title of the dashboard, move chart widgets around, remove widgets that aren’t needed, and add new widgets by dragging and dropping them from the list onto the page.
To do this, click on Edit on the Nova Dashboard, and choose the widget(s) you would like to insert into your dashboard.

NOC mode

Network Operation Center mode (or NOC mode) clears the screen of all Nova user interface elements, leaving the chosen dashboard. The interface goes from this:

To this:

It’s a perfect overview for call center, network operations, or help desk employees.

Move and resize widgets

You can move and resize widgets across your dashboard.

To move a widget, click and hold the widget you would like to move, and drag to the location you would like it to be.

To resize a widget, click and hold the arrow on the bottom right of the widget. You can resize it to your standards; the red preview box will show you how large the widget will be once its resized.
