Comment 2 Dayle Parker 2016-02-21 23:24:22 EST
A few specifics which may need updating (from comments in Gitlab merge request #120)

1) From "Generating Widget Content Immediately"

Generation of widget content is shown under the Tasks page of  (Settings & Operations). 

--> Cannot find this location in CFME.

2) From Changing Report Views - Cannot find the buttons to change the view by following the procedure. For now, 'Graph View', 'Hybrid View', and 'Tabular View', are marked up as guilabels. See if the procedure has changed in 4.0.

Reports are stored in the VMDB; however, you can share customized reports among VMDBs. To do this use the export and import feature of reports. 

3.9.1. Managing Report Menu Accordions 
Procedure: To Manage Report Menu Accordions-Step 4 All icons need to be updated

EVM Worker Killed 
EVM Worker Not Responding

EVM Worker Exceeded Uptime Limit

8.1. Creating Alert Profiles
Procedure: To Create an Alert Profile
Step 2 has a few options and the consequent options change wrt the choice made. Either accommodate all the choices and subsequent actions or add a Note about this. I suggest adding a screenshot of the multiple profiles under the Alert Profile tab and then editing the UI options to <replaceable> unmarked GUI labels, such as, 'Select the desired alerts from the Available Alerts area'

Assigning to Chris for review.

Chris - this was an internally created bug suggesting a review of the guide in question. Take a look and see if we can still incorporate the suggestions above into the guide in its current state. If so, great, but if it looks like it may take longer to investigate everything in detail, feel free to skip those items for now and we'll just update what we can.
