VMTurbo Announces v4.7 is NOW GA!  See Ben Yemini's Announcement Thread, and Eva's Post


You asked and we heard!  VMTurbo is introducing in v4.7 a whole new experience in how create, view, schedule and send reports.  It's your data and you want to control how to share it.  VMTurbo is giving you a What You See is What You Report feature.  WYSIWYR!  Ok maybe it won't quite work as an acronym but it will work to allow you to leverage creation of custom Dashboards and Views that were already introduced in v4.5 and 4.6 (and further enhanced in v4.7!), and take that one step further to create a saved Report of your Dashboard, and then be able to view, send or subscribe to send out to anyone in your organization over email.

Here is how it will work for you:


You can take any Dashboard including the Optimize one which is now a Dashboard and that includes historical actions taken as a new view, save it as a report then schedule it.  Here is the new Optimize Dashboard that I scoped to Virtual Machines in a specific Cluster.

You can then save this view:

And then you can generate it or schedule the Report in the new interface (note the very convenient search ahead filtering criteria based on report name!):
