Additional dashboard functionality¶
Advanced View – Slice & Filter¶
The “Advanced” view allows us to “slice” and “filter” the logs. To slice a log click on the “+” button next to the “Slice Log”.
Advanced > Slice¶
We can slice a log based on “Event attribute”, “Case attribute”, “Timeframe” or “Performance”. In case of “Event attribute” select the events with which you want to slice the log.
After clicking on “OK”, we can see the details of the selection we made. Click on “Apply”, to see the results.
Similarly, we can either slice by “Case attribute”, “Performance” or “Timeframe”.
In case of “Timeframe” and “Performance” there is an option of “Add slice line”. For this click on the “+” button next to “Add slice line” and slide the slider. Alternatively, you can also select a date from the date picker.
Advanced > Filter¶
We can add a filter by clicking on the “+” button next to Filter log.
Select the desired filter and click on “Apply”. For optimal use of filters, please go through the Filter Log manual.
To apply the filter click on “Apply” in the Slicing and Filtering section.
Add Reference Lines¶
For visualization purpose, we can also add reference lines to a chart to mark important timelines. For this click on the ‘+’ button in the “Reference lines” section.
We can add KPI target from the KPI thresholds section, which is available in the “Basic” view.
The “Mean + Tolerance” metric allows us to specify a mean performance metric with a specific tolerance (in percentage).
The “Custom” metric allows us to specify custom performance indicators.
Compare Multiple Process Variants¶
Custom Performance dashboard not only helps us to dive into the statistical metrics of a single event log but also helps us to compare different versions of an event log. For this, select more than one version of the same event log and click on “Analyze” > “View performance dashboard”.
We see the charts of both the logs combined
We can also choose to split charts to compare multiple process variants.
We can zoom into the graph by simply dragging the mouse over the part of the chart we would like to zoom.
We can zoom out of the graph by clicking on “Reset Zoom” button.
