Welcome to the Fast-track for Navigation.
After logging in to the App, you will be greeted by this page - the dashboard.
In this video we’ll:
Use the dashboard to explain the page layout
Give you some navigation tips and tricks
And show you how to find help
The page layout
Let’s start with the page layout.
The status bar
Use the status bar that is located at the top of every page to:
Check when the data was last refreshed
You can watch this navigation video directly in the App
Become familiar with the page by taking a tour
Take a look at your learning library
Or click on your name to change your password
Administrators can view the App configuration by clicking the settings icon.
The menu bar
Use the menu bar to navigate to key functionality by clicking on the words, or use the drop-down for an alternate navigation option.
The title bar
The title bar tells you what this page is about, and contains selections to either:
Change the display unit
Or to filter the page content
When viewing a specific location, you can set the location as your default by clicking on this icon.
Navigation tips and tricks
By setting the location that you most frequently view as your default location, when you click on Dashboard or Forecasts, this location will display.
You can select a different location by clicking on the drop-down to see the list of all available locations.
Sorting and visual clues
Click on a column to sort the list in that order
Visually see which are real locations (green highlight) or regional consolidations (orange highlight) that have been configured
Flags indicating currency will display if there are locations with different currencies
Filtering the locations lookup
If you have a large number of locations, start typing characters (red box) to filter the list.
Clicking on a location will display data for that location.
Hover tips provide additional detail or further explanation, indicating where:
There is a video you could watch
Where online help is available
What the benchmark or start point on a KPI is
To drill-through to the full list of items, or
To mute items on the exception lists.
Speech bubbles indicate the presence of comments on the item.
You can drill-through the dashboard to get to a list of items in each status.
The default sort order will be highlighted but you are able to sort the list in any order by clicking on a column heading.
You can filter the list using a number of standard filters and a few (Groups) that are based on dimensions in your data.
Selecting filter options and applying them reduces the number of rows displayed.
The list can be downloaded to a CSV file and you can navigate through the list using these page numbers.
To drill-through to individual items in the list for review, we find that opening items in a new tab is the most effective way of working through the list.
Clicking on this icon …
… will show your progress through the training courses that you have been assigned.
