With being responsible for such a large geography, with very unstable and limited internet access, it’s important to keep on top of connectivity issues. This helps us spot problems before they become critical…
I love atlas for it's capability but it's limited by module - so if you don't have the modules you need, you can't truly map things out the way they could be done.
kbongi this is definitely something a lot of our staff would probably have an interest in seeing what is to come, it might be a good way to build some hype as we try to get them to look at the appstack bundle (assuming some of what's coming is relevant).
The only map we have that isn't littered with customer details.
But I would have to conclude, Atlas is long overdue an update, it is slow and cumbersome.
Filtering would be rather handy, other products I have used, have the ability to only display elements (on the map) that meet the criteria, such as node down, or CPU busy or status <> up.
So you create a map with all devices in it and they only show up if there is a problem with them.

There's probably some more, and I will add them if they pop into my head, but the items above seem to be universal thoughts across almost every engineer I train on Network Atlas.
