There is a necessity of creating a new Menu and Dashboards that the management team can validate the information in a single place.

Today, managers need to go to different reports and run them separately.

The best case would be a place holding all that information.

Resolution

To create a new Menu and a Dashboard, there are a few processes that need to be followed:

  • Open the ITMS Console
  • Navigate to Settings > All Settings > Notification Server > Console Settings > Portal Pages
  • Right click on "Portal Pages" folder and select New > Portal Page
  • That will create a new portal page like the following image:

 

  • Click on "Edit" and choose all the Web Parts that you would like to add
  • Save the changes made on the new portal page (you can change the name if you want)

 

  • Navigate to Settings > All Settings > Notification Server > Console Settings > Menus

 

  • Click on "New" and select "New Menu"
  • Select the newly created menu and give it a name
  • Save the changes and select now the "Menu Item" that was created under your New Menu
  • Give it a name and save the changes
  • You should have something like the following image (the one created here was the "Test" and the Menu Item was "Printers"):

 

  • Select "Printers" and click on "Show"
  • Choose "Single Page View"
    • That will open a few more options to you
  • In this case, we will select "Portal Page" and will select the Portal Page created previously ("New Portal Page")
  • You should have something like the following image:

 

  • Click "Save changes"
  • Now you should be able to see the newly created menu and the link to the portal page created
