Status Board Module Overview

A status board is a visualization of information within Incident Management. It is comprised of a set of rows, much like a spreadsheet, with a configurable form behind each row. You can add as many status boards as you like and there is no limit as to what you can represent in a status board.

Data in a status board can be sorted and grouped, while rules can be designed to change the color of each row, update dashboard widgets, and module headers.

Opening the map on the side-bar will display information about the status board while opening the logs on the side-bar will allow you to see any posts relevant to what you're viewing.

Each Status Board is designed by creating a template. Collections and plays can be used to pre-load items into it during an event.
