Learning about workspaces

The WhatsUp Home workspace is the first screen you see after logging in to the web interface. This is your personal, customizable Home portal, or workspace.

Workspaces in WhatsUp Gold are designed to be user-specific, and are configurable to include workspace reports specific to users' needs. Workspaces contain multiple views that let you organize various workspace reports by the type of information they display. When you begin customizing your workspace views, you should consider the types of information you need to view most often, the devices in which you need to pay closest attention, and what level of detail you want to monitor through a particular workspace view. You should also take into consideration the type of workspace, and the types of workspace reports you can add to a particular workspace type.

Home and Device Status workspaces

Home workspaces can display both Home- and Device-level workspace reports. You can place any workspace report on a Home workspace; mixing and matching summary, group, and device-specific data.

Changes that you make to a workspace view only affect your user account. If you decide to completely change all of the workspace views under your account, your user account will be the only account affected by these changes. For more information, see Managing workspace views and Selecting Workspace Reports.

Device Status workspaces are limited to display only Device-level workspace reports. Only workspace reports specific to a single device can be placed on a device workspace. When you change the device-in-context, the reports displayed show data corresponding to the newly selected device. For more information, see Adding workspace reports to a Device Status workspace.
