The Patch Manager Web Console views are configurable widgets that display in the web console. These views translate your deployment data into user information that displays in charts, summary lists, reports, and events. Each view is linked to a resource that provides the raw data for each view. 

If your user settings allow you to customize the views, you can change the layout and composition of the resources in the web console. See Defining the user account settings for additional customization details. 

Based on your user account settings, you can change the layout and composition of the Patch Manager Web Console views. These changes impact all users who share the views.
