Using the Dashboard
On each dashboard page, you have the option to change the selection based on the groups/users/computers that you want to display. You can also change the date range using the date picker.
Choose all groups to see reports on your entire organization. Filter down to specific groups and users to gauge how your departments are performing.
The charts on the dashboards will change depending on your selection. For example, if you select groups, the Top 5 Active Time charts under the Overview will display the top 5 groups. Whereas, when you select all users, that chart will display your top 5 users.
Change the date to compare how your organization is performing based on your date range. Presets buttons are available for quick access to common date ranges such as today, this week and last 30 days.
