The information on this page refers to License Statistics v5.12 or newer, which changed the name of the "Current Usage Above 24 Hours" report to "Current Usage By Time Range." If you are using an earlier version of License Statistics, please refer to the documentation for versions prior to v5.12.

The default Dashboard

The License Statistics Dashboard is a collection of sections that give you an overview of the reports you care about most. The Dashboard lets you monitor various metrics at once, so you can quickly monitor and manage your license servers and features. The default Dashboard consists of the following areas (starting from the top left to the bottom right of the page):

- License Servers section

Current Utilization report

- Current Usage On Multiple Hosts report

Features Expiring In 12 Months report

- Highest License Usage report

- Current Usage By Time Range report

The steps outlined on this page will teach you how to customize the Dashboard. You can, however, restore the default Dashboard settings at any time by clicking the Reset to Defaults icon at the bottom right of the Dashboard page. Selecting this option also clears all applied filters and restores column visibility in all reports.

Customizing the Dashboard

The default Dashboard may be sufficient for your needs, but if not, you can customize it by adding the desired reports, rearranging them, removing unwanted reports, or customizing the display of your data by defining the page layout. The Dashboard is easy to customize.  

Defining page layout

You can arrange the layout of the sections of the Dashboard by clicking one of the icons at the bottom right of the Dashboard page. The page layout can be one of the following: one-column, two-column, and three-column.

 To add a report to the Dashboard:

  1. Navigate to the report you want to add. (See Reports you can add to the Dashboard, below, for a complete list of the reports you can add to the Dashboard).
