An overview of the Dashboard page

The Dashboard provides you an "at glance" overview of how end-users feel about IT. It is divided into three sections: 

  1. Your IT at a glance
  2. Improvements
  3. Shortcuts 
  4. Latest comments

The top bar of the menu contains navigation elements to the different Service Areas that your organization is currently using HappySignals for. 

In this example, the Service Area is IT. It could also be HR, Finance or other enterprise supporting services. 

The main view of the dashboard is the "Your IT at a glance" view. 

By default, the view shows the Happiness of the services in the selected Service Area. 


In order to see a different point of view in the "At a glance" view, simply toggle between Happiness and Lost Time, or use the time frame selector on the right to choose a different period.

The time selector impacts all data on the Dashboard page.

The default time frame is 60 days. 

1 Your IT at a glance

Dashboard_IT at a glanceThis view is the new starting point to understand how different measurement areas are doing among end-users. 
The dashboard can contain inactive measurement areas. All IT touchpoints are visible in the view, even when no data is available. This is to actively encourage our clients to start experience management across all touchpoints with IT, as we see how valuable it is to measure end-user experiences across the whole estate.
Measuring experience across all of IT,  shows how services are perceived both among the vocal minority submitting tickets, but also among the silent minority that doesn’t. 
"Your IT at a glance" will show you the average Happiness scores, trends, your pre-defined targets, and your volumes based on your selected time frame. 
The trend gives you an insight into how your services have evolved over the selected time period, and gives an indication of how specific areas may evolve if the same trend continues. 
It is good to take into account that the reliability of the trend is better when response volume is higher (longer time period and/or less filters selected). Notice also that trend is calculated when there are only a few days with non-zero response volume in the selected view.
The targets are there to show you at "a glance" whether you are achieving them or not. Details and a better view of the graph can be found on the report page. 
The volume overview shows you how the feedback volumes in the selected period of time.
