This article provides an overview of the Events page user interface. See each topic below for more information on how to use the Events page in Solink.
The Events Panel is located at the bottom half of the Events page. The Events Panel provides a consistent stream of individual events. Each event is contained within an “event card” (a video of the event along with additional data.)
Each event card displays either:
A video of the event with a receipt of the accompanying transaction, or
A video of the event with a motion event icon
The following image provides an overview of the information displayed within an event card:
The Reports Panel displays all of your reports. You can open the Reports Panel by selecting the icon in the top-left of the Events page:
Once you select a report from the list, the Events page displays only events that meet the report criteria. A report is comprised of specific search terms - for example, you can create a report labelled “All Refunds” that searches the Events page for receipts that featured a refund transaction.
For more information on how to create a report, check out the Create a Report section here.
The Histogram Panel on the Events page provides a visual representation of your events based on the selected time interval and event type. The following image provides an overview of the Histogram Panel user interface:

Select the following buttons in the histogram to toggle between displaying transaction count or transaction value data in the histogram:

Date and Location Selector
You can narrow down the displayed events to a specific date, timeframe and location.
Use the dropdown menus at the top of the Events page to choose a day, start time and location (or all locations) to filter events. In the following image, events from all of the business' locations are displayed starting from Feb 15 at 11:03 A.M EST:
Select Multiple Locations (Multi-Select)
You can select specific locations from the dropdown menu at the top of the Events page to filter your events (next to the date/time selector). This functionality is also available on the Dashboard and Clips pages.
Once you have selected the locations, select Apply to apply the changes and display only events from the selected locations.
You can also use the search bar in this area to quickly find locations in the list (if you have several locations to sort through):
Select the checkbox located under the search bar to select all locations at once:
You can also use the same checkbox to select all locations in a search result:
Peek view organizes all event cards so that they are flush on the page. This condenses the content of the event card - select the Enable scroll button at the bottom of each event card to expand hidden content:

To configure events to display in either Peek or Waterfall view:
Navigate to the Settings page (select your username in the top-right corner of Solink > select Settings).
