Ctrlflow Automated Error Reporting recently introduced project dashboards, whose detailed charts make it easy to track how effective projects are at fixing problems. With the introduction of dashboard queries, these dashboards have become even more useful.
For every project, you can define one or more custom queries, which will be presented prominently on the project’s dashboard, right next to the charts. This gives you easy access to those problems you want to keep an eye on at regular intervals.
How to Add a Query to Your Dashboard
To illustrate how this works, suppose that every week you reserve some time to scan the new problems that Ctrlflow Automated Error Reporting caught for you in the past week. You thus regularly search for new problems that first occurred within the last seven days.
Let’s turn this search into a fixture on your project’s dashboard. To do so, click Edit Project. In the Dashboard Queries panel you can then add (and name) your query:
That’s it! Once you have saved your changes, the query is accessible directly from the project’s dashboard for you and your team mates.
And, of course, you can also add queries to the dashboard of a whole project group; just click Edit Project Group on a project group’s dashboard and proceed as before.
Ctrlflow Automated Error Reporting allows you to make your favorite project’s dashboard your start page. The project’s dashboard queries are hence just a single click away when you log in.
Here are some more suggestions for queries that make the most our of your project dashboards:
- Unresolved problems that (still) plague the latest and greatest version of your project.
- Unresolved problems that are not (yet) tracked in your bug tracker.
- Unresolved problems that were reported by an important customer (as identified by the reporter’s
- Problems with a certain tag. (With the aid of tags, you can devise totally new workflows on top of Ctrlflow Automated Error Reporting.)
