The UFT Mobile dashboard

The Dashboard tab is displayed to shared space administrators after logging into UFT Mobile. The dashboard provides a visual summary of the state of the lab. This makes it easier for the administrator to verify that everything is running correctly and to identify issues that need to be addressed.

Dashboard overview

The dashboard tab opens with one widget of each type. Shared space administrators can add more widgets to the dashboard by clicking Add Widget. Up to 20 widgets can be added, and multiple widgets of the same type can be added.

The dashboard can also assist with decision making. For example, device information is useful when deciding if additional devices of a certain OS version are required in general or for a specific workspace. License usage information can be helpful to determine if the UFT Mobile license capacity is sufficient, and if the allocation between workspaces is optimal.
