ServiceNav 4.4 – Timeline developments, improved ergonomy

Back to news


Improvement of the timeline

Following on from the developments announced in  version 4.3, related to the display of tickets and acknowledgements, we continue to improve the timeline in order to centralize and represent in time the different interventions performed on an element.

Adding maintenance information

Maintenance periods are now displayed on the timeline, and represented by a stripped ribbon.

“Previous” and “Next” Buttons

New “Previous” and “Next” buttons on the timeline allow you to quickly navigate between status changes, facilitating rapid analysis.


Important note: these changes are possible courtesy of our new Big Data architecture, and will be available first via the Dataviz module, before being more generally available..

Improved ergonomics

Floating menus

On all  screens containing lists, the menus are now floating. This allows access to key features at any time, without having to scroll back to the top of the list.

Validation of windows by the “Enter” key

Item creation and configuration windows can now be ‘applied’ using the “Enter” key.

Warning about Deleting a User Service Component

When deleting a Host/ Service/ User Service that is a component of a User Service, confirmation is requested, and the list of components involved is available for download (as a csv).
