Live-reloading dashboard and incident homepage

Weekly Update

Dashboard homepage

We've re-worked the dashboard homepage to be more dynamic and welcoming for both observers and responders alike!

The top section has been completely reworked to give you a powerful overview of incidents happening in your organization. With one click, you'll be able to quickly subscribe to incidents you are interested in without having to leave the home view. If you want to dive into an incident's details you can click on a card and be taken to the incident homepage where you can learn more about it.

The page will also keep itself up to date, refetching the latest data (both new incidents as well as updates to existing incidents) every 30 seconds. New incidents and updates to existing ones will be highlighted briefly. You can also manually trigger a refetch by clicking the refresh icon.

👀 We've also added a small christmas present for you in the header. No matter where you are in the world, you'll get some December snow on ❄️

Incident homepage

The incident homepage has also had a reskin, which optimises for more information density without compromising digestibility. A new tab for incident updates has been added, cutting through timeline noise so you can get up to speed quickly.

Just like the dashboard homepage, we've also added live-reloading capability to fetch the latest view of an incident.
