Time heatmap widget

About the time heatmap widget

The time heatmap widget is similar to the heat calendar widget but offers greater flexibility for plotting data over different time ranges and for granularity in grouping the data. 

Configuration options

The following table lists the configuration options of this widget:

Widget title Enter a descriptive title for the widget.
Widget description Enter a description of the widget.
Widget size Select the size of the widget window in the dashboard layout. The units are columns x rows. For example, 3x2 will fit the widget across three columns and two rows.
Time Range The period of time for which you want to analyze data in a single view of the chart. You can choose from 1 hour up to 1 year. This will determine the time range represented across the top of the heatmap.
Group by Specify the grouping period for events in the timeline. For example, if you choose 5 minutes, the timeline will generate event counts for each five minute period. This will determine the number of rows in the heatmap. 
Field to show Select the aggregated field that contains the data to be plotted on the calendar. This is the data used to generate the colored boxes within the heatmap.
Data Operation Apply one of the available operations to the data. Select None, Log or Arctag.
Show selectors Select ON to show the Data operation and Gradient reduction selectors in the widget. This allows users of the dashboard to dynamically fine-tune the way they visualize the data in the widget. 
Show first event Select ON to show the first event on the color scale.
Show last event Select ON to show the last event on the color scale.
Show zero Select ON to show cells with zero values in the blue color at the far left of the spectrum. Select OFF to show these cells in black.


  • Move the mouse over the bar to see only the selected color in the time heatmap.
  • Colors by element of column - The colors in the map are related to the aggregated value. By selecting this option, you can see the color gradient related to each week. If not, the color gradient corresponds to the total period selected.
