Info and Overview resource tabs

I’d like to know what is planned to make the overview and info tabs for resources easier to use/more useful.

My experience with the info tab is that there is just too much information on it for my day to day tasks. It’s all useful to have, but the details I need most are spread out through a very long list and I honestly don’t remember what the property names of them are most of the time. Is there something in the works to make this easier? If I could pin which properties are most important to me to the top of the screen, that’d be helpful. Being able to put them in a table on the overview tab would also be very helpful.

Right now, I’m not really using the overview tab much since I can’t put what would be useful on it. To me these seem like they should be device level dashboards. Are there any plans to add more functionality to this tab? I’d need more tabular data instead of just graphs (important details from the info tab, instance level info from various datasources, etc.)

  • We can kind of do this in a table widget, but they’re horribly broken at scale.

    Curious what you mean because I haven’t seen a way to do it.

    You are correct… I’m thinking the tables in the reports (which seem to be a different purpose element with the same naming convention).  Tables Widget is just a datasource lookup.  It does seem to allow for row names that accept ##stuff##… so you may be able to insert them as part of the row name… nothing simple though… experimentation needed.

  • Was there ever any movement on pinning properties to the top of the Info tab? I'm trying UIv4 again today and not having what I need up at the top of the list is still making tasks more difficult than they need to be
