There are three new dashboard types (presets) with seven additional components to further enhance our multi-runbook dashboard capabilities. Workspace managers have the ability to add these new components to the dashboards in their workspace.

In this article, we will go through the new multi-runbook dashboard components, as well as how to add and manage the components.


The three new dashboard presets allow workspace managers to add to their workspace with a few clicks without the need to build from scratch. These presets are pre-configured to surface useful information for each of the use cases.

  1. ARO Trends and History

  2. Technology Resilience Event Management

  3. Migration Dashboard

Dashboard presets allows you to optimize all aspects of your use cases. In addition to better understanding team performance, you'll be able to discover opportunities for improvement and provide important performance data to stakeholders with ease.

The seven new components cover the following:

To access your dashboard, click the workspace you have added your dashboard to. Next, click the dashboard icon > your dashboard.

New dashboard components

The new dashboard components further enhance observability across runbooks within a workspace and surface key metrics to analyze your existing runbooks and processes. In this section, we'll dive into each component and its functionality.

Note: Only completed live runs data will be displayed in the below components. Any task-specific component requires the task to have been used more than five times in a workspace. The task titles will need to be an exact match across different runbooks.

Average runbook duration, over time

A bar chart that displays the average time it takes to complete a live run within a filtered set of runbooks, and how that changes over a period of time, using hours as the measurement for time.

Average runbook duration

The average time it takes to complete live runs within a filtered set of runbooks. There are two filter options available for this component:

  1. Filter runbooks by: None, Folder, Runbook type

  2. Filter value: Available if folder and runbook type are selected in “filter runbooks by” (presents a list of folders or runbook type).

Completed live runs count by runbook type, over time

A stacked bar chart that displays a breakdown of completed runbooks— reported within a six-month time frame— categorized by runbook type.

Longest duration runbooks

A table that displays three runbooks that have the longest completed live-run duration.

Longest average task duration, single

Displays the longest task duration in completed live runbooks. This information is calculated based on the same task title across runbooks.

Note: For data to show in this dashboard, the task needs to have the longest actual duration and have been executed in three live runs.

Longest average task durations

A table that displays three tasks that have the longest duration. This information is calculated based on the same task title across runbooks.

Note: For data to show in this dashboard, the task needs to have the longest actual duration and have been executed in three live runs.

Particular task average duration

Based on the task title you have established, this displays the specific task average duration across runbooks. To note, this shows the specific task title you wish to have displayed.

Add & manage dashboard components

Click Dashboard and select a dashboard you would like your components to be added to.

Alternatively, create a new dashboard by clicking the blue plus sign at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. After, click on your newly created dashboard to add components.

To note, you can only create or edit dashboards that are in your workspace(s). Dashboards that have Global visibility cannot be edited.

Once you have selected your dashboard, an Edit Dashboard panel will appear on the right-hand side of your screen.

In the Edit Dashboard panel, you have the ability to edit the dashboard name. The dashboard type and visibility cannot be edited once it has already been created.
