List views are the basic component OP5 Monitor uses to display a list of objects with their status data. You can add them to dashboards using widgets, filter them, and customise them to display only the information you want to see.
For more information, see Configure list view columns.
You can filter any OP5 Monitor list views and create new views to add to the Monitor menu which display only the items that correspond to specific criteria, such as lists of hosts in a particular status or particular types of log messages.
For more information, see Manage list view filters.
Quick links are shortcuts you create in a custom navigation bar to access your most frequently used views and reports.
For more information, see Customise your quick links bar in Customise your user interface.
You can quickly access the most important functions for hosts and services by opening the quick access menu in a list view.
