Navigate Chronosphere

The Chronosphere user interface guides you to the resources you need.

Personal home page

After you sign in, Chronosphere displays your personal home page. The Recent Dashboards and Recent Monitors sections link to recently viewed resources.

To view a panel of all collections, in the navigation menu select Teams & Collections. If your user account belongs to a team, collections that belong to your team appear first in the panel. Clicking a team or collection opens its home page.

To return to this view from anywhere in the Chronosphere app, click the Chronosphere logo.

Team and collection home pages

Teams and collections have their own home pages populated with links to associated resources, and also customizable links and descriptions. For details, see Team and collection home pages.


Chronosphere provides a global search bar on every page that supports searching for teams, collections, dashboards, and monitors by name. To search, click the search bar or use the keyboard shortcut Control+K (Command+K on macOS) to focus on the bar, and then begin typing. Search results will appear as you type.

By default, search results include all supported resource types. To toggle a resource type's visibility in the results, click its selector at the top of the results list.

The icons in the resource type filters correspond to the icons displayed next to each result and identify each result's type. Resources in the results that belong to a team or collection also list them beneath the result's name.
