Resources Window

The Resource window contains a list of all the resources available to the role of the person logged into the portal. Click on whitespace in a resource line and the Alerts window to the right will be filtered to show only alerts for the resource line you clicked on. Click directly on a given resource name to be redirected to the Trends Dashboard for that resource.

The list can be filtered using the Omnisearch Bar to reveal particular resources of interest. The list can be further grouped and sorted for browsing if you happen to administer a large number of resources.

Expand All changes to Collapse all when clicked and vice versa. To remove this grouping, click the x in the header box you dragged up to the grouping line.

To SORT simply click on the header you are interested in sorting by. Successive clicks on the header cycle through sorting alphabetically ascending, descending and default sort order. Here is the list in descending order:

To delete a view click the trash barrel to the right of view name you saved earlier.
