To simplify a dashboard, an admin may remove a large number of sensors and put them in a secondary board. The user must navigate to that board to see the status of its items. Currently, you can use triggers and flow in the rules engine to write a variable that indicates if all items are inactive or active and can display that state on the primary board via a variables tile. This involves two triggers and one flow per device. After a few devices, this becomes error-prone.
In the example show, there is a dashboard called lights, and a variable called $Lightstatus. If all lights are off, the variable is set to false (inactive). If any light is on, it is set to true (active).
- As an end-user, I want to know the status of a second board by viewing a tile on the current board so I know if something needs my attention.
- As an admin, I want to set up a status tile without coding or rules engine, so that active/inactive status can be displayed to end-users.
- System-level function to assess the active/inactive status of any dashboard. If any tile is active, the dashboard is active. If all tiles are inactive, the dashboard is inactive.
- Configuration on the dashboard tile that enables showing the system level active/inactive status of the connected dashboard.
