The Risks Dashboard shows a project filter combo, Risks entity filter and a group by parameter. These parameters combine to provide two graphs, one showing the risk count by type and the group by parameter, the other showing the risk count by RAG indicator and the group by parameter.
The Issues Dashboard shows a project filter combo, Issues entity filter and a group by parameter. These parameters combine to provide two graphs, one showing the issue count by status and the group by parameter, the other showing the issue count by priority and the group by parameter.
The Customer Dashboard shows only a project list parameter and can therefore only be pulled for one project at a time.
The dashboard is aimed at the project customer and provides basic project information, stakeholder information and additional project information, like objectives and deliverables and benefits. The bottom section of the dashboard graphically shows each milestone on the project planned for the next six (6) months as well as milestones that are overdue / outstanding. A milestone is overdue / outstanding when the planned end date on the milestone has passed, but the milestone is still not 100% complete. Each block shows the milestone name and planned end date.
The following colour coding applies to the milestones:
- Green - indicates that a milestone has already been reached
- Blue - indicates that the work needed to reach the milestone has already started but isn’t finished yet
- White - indicates that no work has been performed in order to reach this milestone.
