I suggest you ...


Make dashboard wizard a true wizard. Make creation easier, more intuitive. Being new to SCOM 2012R2, the amount of choices, data and selections available is utterly overwhelming. Reimaging the wizard to be more detailed with selections for ideas based on questions presented so the process will understand exactly what it is you are trying to get the system to presetnt to you!!? At this point I am dang near just completely overwhelmed. An example would be: A Process/wizard that would walk me through selecting the necessary objects to create a dashboard would show the overall heath of all of my windows servers, with particular attention paid to only alerts on disk space, cpu utilization and memory utilization..I have tried numerous scenarios with pretty much nothing fitting what I need for my environment. But, still learning, thank you.

With SCOM 1801 we have shipped HTML5 dashboards removing Silverlight dependency and allowing access of Web Console from multiple browsers. With this release Web Console is completely HTML based.

HTML5 dashboards allows users to save dashboards into a new MP or an existing unsealed MP which can be exported through Operations Console to share with others.

More information on System Center 1801 release is available here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/first-system-center-semi-annual-channel-release-now-available/
Documentation for HTML5 is available here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/manage-overview-html5-webconsole?view=sc-om-1801
