Helpdesk Dashboard Screenshot – tracking SLA, open tickets, urgent tickets, trends

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — Tags: — dashboardspy @ 11:39 pm

The Remedy helpdesk system now uses dashboard displays (they branded their system as "Flashboards" – see http://www.remedy.com/solutions/coretech/flashboards.htm). Here is a dashboard screenshot of what a help desk manager would be interested in. Note the emphasis on open tickets – by priority, by department and by high/urgent status. The second screenshot shows how a user flips the view. From the Remedy people on the term "flashboard" – "a visual management tool that allows you to create dashboards that graphically monitor business process performance in real-time. Flashboards automatically monitors critical business indicators and proactively alerts process owners to potential issues. Allows you to graphically monitor your key performance indicators (KPIs) through interactive charts and meters, and also allows you to drill-down into the details of a particular process to understand and review the underlying metrics. Graphical displays highlight problem areas using color-coding to give you visual alerts that conditions are outside of acceptable ranges. Flashboard alerts can also help you to quickly and expertly re-deploy your resources to optimally resolve current issues and address potential problems."

He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become.

Metrics include network status, file storage, bandwidth, keynote streaming perspective, top 10 files, traffic by geography, flash player version, concurrent viewers, etc. The user can also preview the stream.
