Although there have been many new features introduced and many behind-the-scenes improvements, the overall look and feel of the Teleporte Admin Dashboard has remained largely the same since 2017.
With the launch of our server 3.14 (released today, on pi day) we are previewing our new Dashboard design, built on the latest technology. After 5 years and a lot of customer use, it was time for a major upgrade. Any customers who want to try out the new interface can do so easily, as follows:
- Login to Teleporte.
- Click on your user name in the top right corner of the interface
- Select the option “Teleporte Dashboard (Beta)”
And that’s it: you’re in. You’ll notice an interface that should feel familiar and brand new all at the same time.
Some Highlights of the New Dashboard
We designed this update to be intuitive and have very little re-orientation time for our existing users. For example, the Menu has been redesigned as you see to the left. This design is just more intuitive and useful than the old straight list.
One of the first changes you’ll likely notice is that the Notifications look different. You can see much more information and add comments. For photo notes, you can now see the associated pictures. You can dismiss notifications by clicking the checkmark. A new Filter function is useful for selecting the types of Notifications that you are interested to see.
Perhaps the most compelling feature of our new dashboard is that it updates data in real time. The original dashboard will display information that is current when it is loaded, but requires reloads to refresh the data. Real-time updates without user interaction make this Dashboard even more ready to deploy to a NOC out of the box.
There are many other updates to discover. Some are subtle improvements to be discovered in time. Others are obvious. Our goal in designing this was that by the time you have logged 30 minutes, you never want to go back to the old one.
The new Teleporte Dashboard will remain in preview for a couple of months while we encourage all our users to try it and share their candid feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. After the Beta period ends and you’ve had the change to test it in your environment, we plan to migrate everyone to the new Teleporte Dashboard as the only available view. This will mean the retirement of an interface that many of us have grown very familiar with, but we are confident that the new one is worth the switch.
If you aren’t a Teleporte user yet, contact us and we’ll be happy to show you the new dashboard in a demo.
