Watch Status Panel
A watch status card is a summarised view of a watch. Clicking on the card opens the watch Details page.
Watch status cards appear when you click on a heat tile or grid row.
Depending on whether a service or location was clicked, the panel header shows one of the icons below and the name or description, if available
All watches have a name and a description is optional. If no description is configured, the watch name shows regardless of the status of this toggle. The option of Name or Description is remembered when you next login.
There are 3 options available for sorting: A - Z, Issues or Type. The selection is remembered when you next login.
- A - Z
- Watches are sorted by alphabetically by description
- Sorting by issues puts the most recent amber and red watches at the top followed by green watches, which are sorted by description
- This sorts the list by watch type and then by description

Red and amber cards show a duration in minutes (m), hours (h) or days (d). This is the duration of the most recent issue on the watch.
Watches with additional features show a badge in the lower part of the card. Click the badge to jump to that section of the watch details page.
- Shown if the watch has either Flow or NBAR
- Shown if the watch has either Broadband Clarity or Cellular Clarity in a green state (no issues)
- Shown if the watch has one or more performance tests and all are in a green state (no issues)
- Clarity Clarity
- The Clarity badge changes to amber or red if either Broadband Clarity or Cellular Clarity have an issue
- Performance Performance

If the watch is in maintenance, the maintenance icon is shown. On hover this shows "Watch in maintenance".
If one or more performance tests is in maintenance, a purple dot shows on the Performance badge.
Cards still show colour changes to amber and red when in maintenance but this does not impact the associated heat tile colour.
