Step 4: Monitoring Work Progress

Whether you track the status of your projects or monitor your team's workload, dashboards will help you get the required information on one screen. Dashboards consist of a set of customizable widgets that contain a list of tasks, projects, or files filtered by certain criteria. You can create several dashboards to cover your needs and share them with your team so everyone will be on the same page. Please note that the dashboards aren’t prebuilt, so you’ll need to create them from scratch using the instructions below.

Manager Dashboard

Manager Dashboard allows you to gain visibility into your team’s work. It consists of widgets with tasks grouped by status (new, in progress, completed, and so on). You can check what your team members are working on or what they have planned without having to continually ask.

Risk Dashboard

Personal Dashboard

Personal Dashboard helps your team members understand their priorities so they can focus on the most important tasks. While creating widgets for this dashboard, always pick the “Current User” option, so when you share this dashboard, everyone will get a personal version of their dashboard.
