8. Dashboards

The dashboards are a visual representations of the results from the automation runs. With the dashboards, it is easy to monitor data and results, and share these with colleagues and management.

It is possible to define multiple dashboards, so that, for example, every user, project, business unit, or product unit can have their own visual overview.

A dashboard consists of one or more widgets, each showing the configured results of the automation flow runs.

The following widgets are available in the dashboard:

  • Flow Trending Area
  • Flow Trending Bar
  • Most Failed
  • Pie Chart

LEAPWORK Studio can be configured to run in full-monitor-mode, allowing the dashboards to be shown on a monitor.
