A Status Board is a visualization of information within Incident Management. It comprises 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. Here's some examples you could create in your account.

Ideas for your Status Boards:
There is no limit as to what you can represent in a status board. Here are some ideas from other customers to get you started.

  • Shelters
  • Risks
  • Rivers
  • Roads
  • Bridges
  • Buildings
  • Damage Assessments
  • Schools
  • Infections
  • Crew
  • Passengers
  • Delays
  • Incidents

Data in a Status Board can be sorted and grouped, while rules can be designed to change the colour 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 Updates 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 while Collections can be used to pre-load items into it during an event.



Templates

Each Status Board has a Template which outlines the layout of the form behind it, and which columns should display on the list view.




Collections

Collections are used to pre-load data into a Status Board. For example you might have a Status Board of 'Shelters' and you could enter all the county storm shelters in to the collections in advance. They are then available pre-loaded to import during an Incident.




Using Status Boards

When you come to use a Status Board during an event you should first add it to your channel, or start your channel with a Play that includes it.
