Q&A Summary


1. If we want to share a dashboard using a URL and use the link embedded with another link on the website, what would be the best way to achieve this? i.e. staff intranet -> IT services status icon -> and when you click on that it takes you to the dashboard.

The best way to achieve this is to create a static URL (that is what it was built for). In the current release, this can be done by using the drop down arrow at the top of the dashboard you wish to embed.

2. What is the script rotator?
This is a simple script that will allow you to rotate through different dashboards at a timed interval. To learn more about it, please read this KB article, which includes the script from a Dropbox location.

3. Can we get the Active Directory module for the PowerShell widget?
PowerShell can use any of the modules you want. To do this, you need to include the import-module command at the beginning of your script. Also, remember to make sure that the module is installed on the server that is hosting Live Maps.
