    View events


    Click here to learn about the basic concepts of events.

    Users can view all events by either navigating through the timeline or going to the events page by clicking on the icon at the top right corner of Formant web application.

    Clicking on an event on the events page will take the user back to the specific moment in time within the Channel when the event occurred. Users can then navigate to the next or previous event by clicking on the seek button or the event title at the top of the Channel. 

    On the events page, search, sort, and filter controls are available to help users find a specific event (or events) more quickly. Users can search by username or event message and filter by event type and other relevant tags.

    Each event type has a color associated with it, which will be displayed on each row. For events generated by running a command, the user who ran the command and its parameters are displayed as part of the message type. For an event generated by a comment, the user who created the comment is displayed on the message type.

    A filter in the channel restricts the notifications displayed in the channel (reducing the alert count and limiting what is displayed in the notification list).
