GUI suggestion: Icons -> Actions

On a 1.6p16 instance.

As shown below, Icons should be renamed as Actions.

Is there a story why the column header named as Icons ?

The only thing I can think of… I-C-O-N-S (5 letters) A-C-T-I-O-N-S (7 letters)

One of the biggest problems with dashboards is figuring out how to make both a “clear” and also “compact” design, as the two items sometimes work against each other.

IMHO, 5 vs 7 letters is a weak argument, since we have “Status detail” as column head also.

Maybe, but consider the Icons column by default holds tiny item(s). Where Status Detail is going to contain much larger content (generally speaking). It’s just a UI thing.

Tables are wonderful things, but can cause such issues in a UI.

Not to be picky, but shouldn’t 1st column head - “state” be “State” ?

It is very easy - not all “Icons” are actions. If i open a graph this is no action.
The same for some other icons. If you can select a icon to quickset a downtime then it would be an action.
Action in monitoring context means that something is done and not only shown.

Open is an verb/action, isn’t it ?
Anyway, this is just an friendly suggestion from a new CRE user.
And there is no agreeing Vote. :grinning:

No :slight_smile: you must think inside the monitoring context, not if you as a person do an action.
