4.1. Dashboards

Dashboards are generally great at showing summary information ata glance. There are two primary dashboards associated with Rollouts.
  1. Rollout Dashboard: this dashboard shows all rollouts to which the current user has access.
  2. Rollout Summary Dashboard : Every rollout has a dashboard for itself which shows summary infomation / statistics and the current lifecycle stage in a single view.
Access for the number of rollouts are limited by the role of the user on RolloutMan and the Group to which the user belongs.  For more details of Users, Groups and Roles, refer Fundamental Concepts > Users, Groups and Roles section.
Rollout dashboard
A rollout dashboard has multiple views and can be changed as per user's convenience.
 
View : Calendar View
The primary view is the "Calendar View".

View: Tabular View
Another available view is - "Tabular View".
This view is most useful, for searching and cloning project rollouts. 
Searching rollouts
As the number of rollouts grow, its quickly becomes really difficult to keep track of the large number of project implementations. The high speed "Search" bar at the top of the table, indexes and searching at lightning speed for the benefit of rolloutMan users.
Cloning Projects
In this view, a completely new column with three new features are shown, viz. 
  • - Clone rollout for Iteration
  • e - Clone rollout for Environment
  • p - Clone rollout for New project
Details around each of these are detailed under Fundamental Concepts > Rollouts > rollout Cloning chapter.

Page Buttons & Features
Add Rollout
This button allows the user to add / plan a new Rollout. 
This button is visible only to a "Admin" User. A "User" user is not allowed to add a new rollout.
Advanced Search Allows a user to peform more context specific search. However in most cases, we recommend to use the tabular view and the fast search bar on top of the table. 
 
 
 
 
Rollout Summary Dashboard
Each rollout has a Summary Dashboard, which shows multiple statistics associated with the rollout.  This dashboard is shows immediately after entering the rollout (by clicking on the rollout link).
