HxGN SFx | Asset Management

Browsing Programs in Dashboard

Each time the Program Dashboard is opened, SFx Asset Management will automatically discover the programs that are newly started on all connected assets. After the discovery, all the discovered programs will be connected to the cloud and saved in the Program Dashboard.

SFx Asset Management provides you with the following two view modes to browse all connected programs in the ProgramsDashboard.

Programs are ranked by a color sidebar indicating their running status: Red > Yellow > Green > Gray. See Program Status for details.

Card View

The Card View displays each program in a widget of the same size. When you click a widget, you will be navigated to the detailed view of a program. See Browsing a program in Detail for more information. 

Compared with Table View, Card View shows each program’s properties in an expanded space, such as program name and the real-time status. Moreover, Card View has a better visual appearance than Table View.

To switch to Table View, click the image5.png icon at the upper-right corner of the Program Dashboard.

Table View

The Table View displays each program in a table row. When you click a program name, you will be navigated to the detailed view of the program.

Each row is collapsed by default. Click the image8.png icon in front of each row to expand it for browsing more properties of a program, such as the program image, the name of asset that it runs on, and the last file update time. To collapse the row again, click the image9.png icon.

Compared with Card View, Table View uses less space, which makes it easier to compare and sort multiple programs without dragging the scrolling bar up and down.

To switch back to Card View, click the image11.png icon at the upper-right corner of the Program Dashboard.
