Building a dashboard can be a tricky process when there are a lot of options and users who are not always familiar with every aspect of the system: like 100% of the time. Besides, the best part of risk management is that which helps people share a common understanding of what the risk is, how it is being controlled, who’s responsible, what the issues are, etc., and the new dashboard pages feature can help in that process.
- having multiple pages that any user can quickly switch between
- each page covers a particular facet of the risk management and assurance process
- pages can be clearly titled describing what the function of each page represents
- pages that can easily be set up and configured by Admin and shared between users so that everyone is, by definition and purpose, on the same page
- pages that any user can also add to and modified to suit their own specific purposes
Well, then, that’s what we have in place now.
RiskView now supports multiple dashboard pages.
The active dashboard page can be chosen by all users from the drop-down in the top right-hand corner of the Dashboard.
Each page can have a different title and different content. You might like to name the pages based on context, e.g.:
The Default page can only be edited by Admin. That is to say, any changes to the Default page will automatically update everyone else’s Default page.
When a user logs in for the first time, they will get the Default page.
Therefore, prior to granting access to other users, it’s a good idea to configure the Default page.
Adding a New Page
All dashboard pages created by Admin are global (note the use of the Global symbol around the system now) and they are available for all users to import.
There is no limit on the number of pages that can be created by Admin or any user.
When Admin creates a New Page, they get a blank page, and need to populate it with dashlets and configure them.
When other users create New Pages, the following will be displayed on the main screen:
To add dashlets to the existing page, clicking on the button to make the list of Dashlets appear to the right:
Clicking on any item adds the corresponding dashlet to the dashboard from where it can then be configured.
Importing Dashboard Pages
To import an existing dashboard page, clicking on the button to make the list of Pages appear to the left:
Clicking on the item will import all the contents from that page into a blank dashboard page.
Note, this only imports the dashlets, their positioning and configuration. The user can alter it to suit their requirements from then on.
All dashlets auto-configure to reflect the current Register, so even though Admin may have configured the dashlets at the top level of the register hierarchy, when they are subsequently imported, they will reflect the importing user’s security and positioning on the risk register hierarchy.
