Bytware provides a Sequel dashboard that allows you to display information from the Messenger products. If you use both Sequel data access and analysis software and Messenger, you can download this dashboard and use it to see a high-level overview of your system events and to drill down to more detailed information.

You can use the downloaded dashboard as a starting point to develop your own customized views that fit your requirements.
