New Features

Multiple List Layouts

The new view switcher displayed in the controls of lists allows to change their layout. The majority of lists use this to switch between various levels of detail. The service list below for example uses it to show a check’s output at different lengths.

New Search With Auto-Completion

We have greatly expanded the search functionality in list views. The so called search-bar allows experienced users full control by keyboard to write their filters. It also aids with contextual auto completion. There’s also an editor for a more easy manipulation.

Cleaner Detail Views

A host’s or service’s detail view has been restructured to show more details but also to make more use of the available space. Important details also got moved to the top so that they are visible right away without having to scroll down.

Bulk Operations
