ActixOne – Getting Started...

Managing Measurement Data
Task List

Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

Task List in ActixOne
An ActixOne system may contain
– – – data from multiple sources for an entire operator‘s network including several RAN systems (GSM, UMTS, ...).

Accordingly, the Task list may contain 1000s of tasks related to
– – – – – – different types of problems different priorities and status multiple regions and cities a multitude of clusters and sites a number of engineers working on them. multiple departments and branches in the organization

What is eventually visible in the task list can be arranged individually using Views, Filters, and Scopes (incl. Areas)
Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

24

Task List – Default View
A flat list containing the main task properties in the following sequence:
– – – – ID Type Description Created (Date and Time) – – – Assigned To Priority Status

Below the task list, there is a link to the applied View.
– If the Default view is applied, then there is a link to creating a view.
25
Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

Setup the Task List
using Views Create an individual View of the Task list with:
– – a defined tree structure and selected columns in a defined sequence.
and select Create View...

For example: Group by Type and Status. Click the Views icon Activate Group for the columns Type and Status.
As Group is activated, the column item is moved up automatically. This creates a tree view grouped at first by Type and then by Status, because Type is in this list above Status.

Select the Priority column and click to move it up below ID Name the view Click to save and apply the view
The view is then available for this user for selection in the View icon menu
Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

26

Setup the Task List
using Views

Further functions for Task Views include:
– Select from many more task properties defined in the system setup, e.g. to show and group the task list by network hierarchies like Regions, Clusters

Manage Views... to list all views and to edit or delete them

Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

27

Task List – Filter
Filters can reduce the number of listed tasks. Without a filter (or scope), all tasks are listed.

Below the task list, there is a link to the applied Filter.
– – If no filter is applied, then there is a link to creating a filter. If the list is filtered the Filter icon has a green check mark, otherwise not
28

Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

Setup the Task List
using Filters Create an individual Filter for the Task list with:
– – a condition on a task property or combined conditions on several properties.
and select Create Filter...

For example: Filter for my own tasks. Click the Filters icon Name the filter Set the Field Assigned To to equal your login name. Add e.g. conditions to only show tasks that are not closed or just closed within the last 3 days.
– – Click Use to add a row to logically group the selected rows

Click

to save and apply the filter
29

The filter is then available for this user for selection in the Filter icon menu
Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

Task List – Scope
Scopes (e.g. areas) can narrow down the listed tasks. Without a selected scope (or filter), all tasks are listed.

Below the task list, there is a link to the selected Scope.
– If no scope is selected (i.e. scope is „Entire Network“), then there is a link to selecting a scope.
30

Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

Setup the Task List
using Scopes

Set an individual Scope for the Task list by:
– selecting an area.
For example: Set the scope top my cluster. Click the Scope icon and select from Network Areas the respective cluster Click to apply the scope

The map is then automatically zoomed to the selected area. And only tasks are listed, which relate to sectors in the selected area.

Copyright © Actix 2010. Commercial in confidence.

31

Using the Task List
To select a task
– – click on the respective row in the Task List click on the Task ID link at the bottom left of the task list and enter the ID
