Visualizing through screens

In the previous section, we discussed about adding custom URLs and introduced shortcuts to some screen section. Now it's time to go deep into screens. Screens are easy to generate, and very intuitive to handle. Basically, a screen is a page that can display multiple Zabbix elements, such as graphs, maps, and text. One of the main difference between screens and maps is that in maps, you can place a lot of elements, but you can't for instance, add a graph or the trigger status. They have two different targets.
