I was referred to the dashboard as a "new way" to use studio -- and it's a mess.

While this interface allows for so much potential, it's usability is lacking.

* It shows the business ID and not the business name
* the search for "business name filter" filters by player name -- not business name
* clicking on the "gears" provides more information about the player, but doesn't show the business name
* while the "gears" provide longitude and lattitude of each system, the map shows that all of our systems are in the same location -- which isn't correct
* hitting "restart" player didn't do anything but change the status -- never actually restarted
* lite accounts + pro accounts should equal active accounts -- but doesn't -- we have zero lite accounts, and our active accounts is exactly 2x the pro accounts
* inactive accounts -- what does this mean?
* I've logged in several times, and the "last login" has not changed
* total businesses equals pro accounts?
* screens online + screens offline does not equal total accounts or total pro account or total businesses
* the refresh of the list is so quick that by the time you click something to look at it -- it moves -- as in a 2s refresh rate

* average server response time and server response time -- this is great, but I would rather see charts for online vs offline -- operating system or player version

Features Needed
Add business name
Allow "gears" to actually send signals to screen
Graphs that are helpful
Show only status -- not just organize by order
Run historic reports on a system -- online, offline, etc
Accurate naming and mapping

Anyone else with thoughts?

tx for the feedback,
StudioDashboard will be enhanced in 2018 with more features such as live log and also resolve some of the issues you mentioned.
At the same time, you can continue and use StudioEnterprise and switch back and forth as need be.
