2. Basics of the Console

All of the features of Kinetic Task 4 are accessed through the Web Console. This chapter focuses on Activity.

Consoles

All the consoles are briefly described below.

This link goes to the User Guide for more information. Additional details on Dashboard, Permissions, and Admin consoles are outside the scope of this guide.

Dashboard

The front page to the application. It shows some overall stats for Runs and Errors along with popular trees and handlers.

For most errors, you can select to resolve or skip the error (after entering information in the required Notes field) once you have diagnosed and corrected whatever is causing the error. A link back to the specific run is towards the top right.

This console lets you construct and maintain Trees, Routines, and Handlers. Trees and Routines have search capabilities on the right hand panel. Handlers are sortable.
