Major Usability Improvements Across Components
TFGrid Dashboard’s TF Grid Explorer Improvements
TF Grid Explorer is available within the TF Dashboard, now not only with a new look, but also new pages such as the Nodes page, Statistic Page, and Farms page. All three pages will be accessible directly from the dashboard’s sidebar.
The Statistic page is the main view of the Grid Explorers. From list of nodes, to gateway online, this page contains all sorts of necessary information and data about the Grid.
Farms section displays the list of farms. Users are able to filter, search and click on a specific farm to see its details.
Nodes section displays the list of nodes. Users are able to filter, search and click on a specific Node to see its details.
Improved Profile Manager - Grace Period Listing
With the new Grace Period, we will hold on to your deployment on TF Playground to give users some time to fund your account.
The Contracts List page will now show the state of the contracts in ‘grace period’ along with the expiration date for these contracts when a user fail to fund the accounts. Therefore users can easily know which deployment you would like to extend and fund.
TF Dashboard - Updated Minting Details UI
Based on the minting details on this forum post, we have added some overview in the dashboard for nodes, to show receipts of previous periods. Next to this, we also want to show some info about the current period.
To display both states, we are now adding first, a calendar showing the minting and fixup receipts timespan. As well a ‘Download Receipts’ button that generates a pdf containing a summary of all the node’s receipts.
