If you don't want birthday and anniversary widgets, you can disable them.

To customize your dashboard,

  1. Click on the Customize Widgets icon on the top right corner
  2. Go to the respective widget you want to enable or disable


  3. Drag and drop the widgets according to the order you want


Organization-wide dashboard

Some organizations prefer to have one common dashboard that will be viewable to all employees while some prefer to provide the flexibility for their employees to customize their own dashboard.

To have a common dashboard configured by the Administrators in the organization,

  1. Go to Settings > Customization > Dashboard Widgets

  1. Enable Organization-wide dashboard 
  2. Customize the dashboard that all users will see

Once this option is enabled, the settings will be applied to all users in the organization. It will override existing employees' customizations and they will no longer be able to customize their dashboard.

To have dashboard customization enabled for all employees,

  1. Go to Settings> Customization> Dashboard Widgets
  2. Disable Organization-wide dashboard 

Once this option is disabled, all settings will be reset and employees will be able to customize their dashboard. 



Feeds can be filtered and viewed depending on your need. For example, if you would like to view the feed's post pertaining to HR Cases or Feedback or Jobs alone, you can click on them to see the list of posts that are posted.

To see the messages posted to your department, you can navigate to the 'Department' section of the Feeds and view them.

All the announcements that are posted (Including Sticky announcements) can be viewed by clicking on the 'Announcements'.

Click here to learn more about Announcements.


As an administrator, you will be able to view all the groups of your organization here.

To add a group,

  • Click on the + icon next to 'Groups'
  • Give a name for the group
  • Give a description if needed
  • Enter the group email id
  • Type in the employee name in the employee search bar and add them either as Members or as Administrators of the group

Only the administrator of the group has the permission to add a member to that group.
