Adding and managing custom text on a view page

You can add customized text and images to capacity views pages (both custom views and out-of-the-box views) in TrueSight Console. You can add descriptions, instructions, links, or any other textual information for the users of the view page. You can use markdown tags to format the content of custom text and to add images, links, and tables. 

For example, you can add a description such as “Displays performance metrics for Payroll application”, or a label such as "NY Datacenter - Capacity Metrics".

The option to add custom text appears when you create or edit a view page template or view page. 

You can format the custom text, by using standard markdown tags. For more information about using markdown tags, see Examples of Markdown tags.
