mPulse users can access dashboard properties for custom dashboards via the Toggle Dashboard Edit Mode button on the dashboard toolbar.

As of mPulse 57.0.20, you have the new Scale instead of scrolling checkbox, which scales the entire dashboard down to fit in screen instead of enabling scrolling.


The Dashboard, Properties tab includes additional dashboard display properties:

  • Background Color  - Background Color can be separately set to offset the widget color. Choose from among the presets or enter a new color using hex-code style (i.e. #FFFFFF for white, etcetera).
  • Background Image – A Default Dashboard Texture image is provided. Use the Import button to utilize a custom image of your choosing. The background image is Tiled (by default) or can be Stretched). Click Import if that image is not also already in the repository.
  • Widget Padding - increase internal and external space around the widget border
  • Link Chart Timelines - Chart timelines are linked across the dashboard by default, unchecking this will unlink them
  • Enable widget animations - Turn chart animations associated with real-time deltas on or off.
  • Hide widgets when not playing – This setting applies to CloudTest and TouchTest only.
  • Column widths - Set a column width in pixels
  • Import – Use the Import button to launch the select a new background image to import. When you do so, the New Image dialog box appears for you to choose the image file to import. Dashboard background images should be 72 pixels wide by 27 pixels tall. The Maximum file size is 5,120 bytes.
