Event date/time markers on custom dashboards

We would like to have a new feature on Custom Dashboards: the ability to display markers on custom dashboards details, based on datetime or period.

It would help users to read the boards and visually see when a particular internal event occurred: new version on production, hotfix deployment, heavy-impact scheduled jobs, etc.

Example 1: marker with a given date and a description

Example 2: period marker with a description

The main idea is to implement something like "Milestone Markers" for custom dashboards based on Web Transaction monitors (browser-simulated user interaction)

Re: Event date/time markers on custom dashboards

Thanks for raising this here Francois. We have noted this down in our feature requests. Btw, how do you manage your Milestone Markers now? Do you use APIs for it or do you use the client? Would be glad to have your feedback.

Hello Jasper, and thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid I won't be able to give you any useful input: we currently don't use the Milestone Marker system. In fact, we are using only one dashboard actively for now, which is based on Web Transaction monitors, so there is no Milestone Marker system available (unless I missed something ?)

Kind regards,

François

Dear Francois, 

      Thanks for giving some insights. We already have Milestone Marker as a feature in Site24x7 (its not yet supported in dashboards. I've asked the team to bring it in the dashboard widgets). You can mark milestone when you update a new version of the product, hotfix that you deploy for your app. Additional you can also automate the process with our milestone marker apis if you are into CI/CD pipeline. 

You can view the markers in the charts in you monitor details page.
