December Community Call: Dashboards | 8th December 2021, 18:00 CET/12:00 ET

Don’t miss next week’s community call, where we will talk about creating dashboards in Checkmk! We unfortunately had to cancel the call last month, but now we’re back with a new date. :slight_smile: Hope you can make it!

More details in this post.

Got some suggestions to improve the Checkmk UI? Let us know!

As there have been a couple of discussions around the topic, it might be useful if we can gather all your feedback about inconsistencies in the Checkmk UI and hear how you think we can make it better. Share your thoughts directly to our Director of Product, Thomas Lippert (@TLI) in this thread.
