Remove report – By clicking this widget the user will remove report from monitoring
Resize – The user can set the size of the report by grabbing one of the 4 corners and moving it to resize as desired. Such change has some restrictions: must meet the requirements of ratio size. Requirements are different for each type of the report. While resizing the green color informs if the current size meets the requirements of the ratio.
The larger the chart, the more details and information it displays. In case of the small report the user must move the cursor to the selected bar to see the detailed information.
To change the position of the report, the user must drag it and move to the desired position.
All changes done in the “Settings” mode will be saved after clicking/tapping on the “Settings” button. Exiting Monitoring settings straight to the other tab will not save changes.
