The Group Map Configuration allows you to configure some basic visual characteristics of the Group Map. You can define the color of the group boxes, based on whether the state has recently changed, as well as the number of minutes in which a change must occur to be considered recent. Finally, you can define if the Group Name is used as the Default Map Text. The following Group Map configuration settings can be made:
- Recently Changed State Color
The group box color (hex color value) to be displayed when a group map KPI has "recently" changed.
- Not Recently Changed State Color
The group box color (hex color value) to be displayed when a group map KPI has not "recently" changed.
- Recently Changed Time Limit
Indicates how long (in minutes) a KPI's status must be changed before the system considers the change to be "recent".
- Use Group Name as Default Map Text
Indicates whether or not the group name is used by default as the group map text, if no other map text has been entered.
Changing Group Map Configuration Settings
From the Config menu, click Group Map to open the Group Map Configuration worksheet with the current settings. In the Task pane is a visual representation of the Group Map Configuration colors.
You can change the Group Map colors by entering a new Hex color number in the Value column of the Group Map Configuration worksheet, OR by clicking an icon in the Group Map Configuration area in the Task pane, under the Custom column. In the Custom column, click one of the icons to change its color. If you clicked one of the squares in the Task pane, the Color dialog displays.
If you want to define a custom color, click the Define Custom Colors >> button to expand the Color dialog.
If you created a custom color, and you will want to use it for more than one Group Map colors, click the Add to Custom Colors button. The custom color is added to the Custom colors area.
Click OK to return to the Group Map Configuration area. The selected color is now assigned to the correct Group Map symbol.
Continue in this same fashion until you have completed the assignment of colors.
To save your changes, click the Save Group Map Configuration button.
