Status Board is a one stop shop to get multiple pieces of information at a glance within APDL. Status Board is configurable with multiple widgets for you to customize the display to suit your preferences.
Status Board is broken up into three different duty phases. On Duty, Blocked Out, and Off Duty. Each one of these duty phases coincides with a different portion of your duty. To avoid information overload, each duty phase can be configured individually to display only the information most relevant to that phase of duty. The Status Board is context aware and automatically sequences between different duty phases based on your schedule.
You can manually select a different duty phase by tapping the corresponding button at the top of the screen. The buttons will be colored white when the duty phase displayed is the current duty phase as determined by APDL. Manually selecting a different duty phase will cause the buttons to be colored yellow to indicate you are viewing a different duty phase than your current state.
There are multiple widgets available to customize the Status Board to suit your preferences. Each duty phase has its own separate display of widgets. Each widget can be enabled or disabled and repositioned on the screen for each duty phase.
To customize the status board display, select the duty phase you would like to customize. Tap the edit button at the top right of the screen. While in edit mode, all available widgets are displayed. Currently enabled widgets for that duty phase are displayed at the top of the screen with a red minus icon to the left. To add a widget to the currently selected duty phase, tap the green plus icon next to that widget. That widget will then be added to the bottom of the currently enabled widgets and the green plus icon will change to a red minus icon.
To remove a widget that is currently enabled, tap the red minus icon to the left followed by the delete button that will appear to the right. The widget will be removed from the currently enabled widgets list and go to the bottom of the available widgets list.
After you have selected all the widgets you would like to display, the enabled widgets can be repositioned in any order you wish. To reposition a widget, tap and drag the three lines icon to the right of the screen. Release to drop the widget in the desired location.
You may repeat this process to configure widgets for a different duty phase. Tap the segmented duty phase button at the top of the screen to select the other duty phases.
Tap the done button at the top right of the screen when you are finished customizing to return to the Status Board.
