Views and modules

A view in Formant is a data dashboard for a particular device. Views are populated by data modules, which display information from individual data streams.

You can create different views for a single device to accomplish different tasks, accommodate multiple users with various interface needs, or quickly analyze different sets of data streams coming from your device.


Only users with a role of Administrator can create, modify, or delete views from a device. For more information on user roles and access levels, see Create a user and Configure access levels.

End users can reorder and resize modules for their own view, and these changes are stored locally in the cache. These changes are not propagated to other users, and can be reset by clicking the dropdown arrow next to a view name >> Reset layout.
