Quick Action Menu

The Quick Action Menu (visible in gray) contains the controls for quickly filtering and manipulating your dashboard data, and creating new resources that are appropriate for the dashboard you’re looking at.

Tiles & Tile Menus

Tiles are visual representations of collected monitoring data, contained within a dashboard. Each tile contains an individual Tile Menu, which provides customizable configuration and filtering options that help you view your data in different ways.

Examples of tile configurations include: displaying monitors or monitor groups of your choosing, individually filtering data by period, etc.

Tile Menus can be accessed by clicking on the gear icon that appears when you hover over a tile with your cursor.


A dashboard is a grouping of related tiles designed to help you efficiently perform data-related tasks, such as troubleshooting and reporting on data trends.

A variety of dashboards come pre-configured in your Uptrends account, sorted by type under the “Dashboards” dropdown on the Main Menu.

It is also possible to create custom dashboards containing tiles of your choosing.
