Perspectives of User/Project Dashboard

You are a project member, and you become concerned when you don’t know what your work has today, or when you have to spend a long time going through the statistics of the work done in a month, a week, or a day.

Don’t worry, UpDiagram offers two types of Dashboards to assist you easily grasp and analyze your existing tasks. In terms of the Project Dashboard, the Items information of each project will be clearer, and you will discover progress, Items data, and a wealth of project information.

What features does the User Dashboard have?

  1. Today Items: The number of items accessible today is shown.
  2. Overdue Items: Statistics on the quantity of expired items
  3. Upcoming Items: Items that are going to be due should be notified (showing items of the current week)
