The employee dashboard is more like a personalized widget. On a day to day basis, an employee has the need to access a lot of basic yet important information like web check-in, list of department members, new hires list, files, leave report and more. As an HR administrator, the need is different. They need to have easy access to certain reports like Employee Growth report, Entry/Exit report etc. All of these are made available in the dashboard.

List of components available on the dashboard:

Dashboard Customization:

You will be able to customize the dashboard. I.e - depending on what you would like employees to access, you can drag and drop the components and prioritize them. For e.g., if you would like to have Web check-in, Pending Goals, Pending tasks to appear on top, then you will be able to drag and drop them accordingly. Apart from this, you will also be able to enable/disable the components that you do not wish to utilize.
