When you log into Amplify, you will land on the Home tab of your Personal Dashboard.
The Home tab allows you to keep track of the upcoming and overdue measurements, pending workflow action requests, project tasks that you own, and the teams/programs that you are part of. It also displays the pages that you set as favourites and links to the pages that you recently visited.
On the Personal Dashboard, you will be able to see the initiatives, benefits, RAIDs, measures and tasks you own or where you are a member of the team. This information is displayed under different tabs, namely My Initiatives, My Benefits, My Measures, My RAIDs, and My Tasks tabs.
This article covers the following topics:
- Upcoming or Overdue Measurements section
- Workflow Approval Notification
- My Teams, Favourites and Recently Visited links
- My Initiatives
- My Benefits
- My Risks
- My Tasks
Upcoming or Overdue Measurements
The first section of your Home tab displays the benefits that are upcoming or overdue for measurement.
This section will populate only if the Upcoming Actuals Reminder setting is enabled for the benefit/impact classification. If this option is configured for the classification and you own the measure, you will be able to see the upcoming measurement and the total overdue measurements a certain number of days before/after the due date of measurement. You can enter the value directly in the field given here. The overdue actual for this measure will then disappear from the personal dashboard.
To record an actual:
- Locate the impact/benefit you want to record.
- Enter the value in the text field.
- Click on the Submit button.
Clicking on the name of the impact will display the impact's Plan tab where you can enter the Plan, Actual and Forecast values.
Workflow Approval Notification
The Stage-Gate/Workflow approvals widget is present to give you a quick oversight and management of action items. Workflows awaiting approvals prompt the user to Approve or Reject, in addition to any comments desired. Once again, all of the important metrics are present in the pop-up widget.
My Teams, Favourites and Recently Visited
Few useful widgets are displayed after the notification panes.
- My Teams Widget - If you belong to a Shared Team, your team will also appear on your personal Dashboard.
- Favourites Widget - The dashboard also features a Favourites widget, which will highlight initiatives and benefits that are marked accordingly. Click on the name link to go directly to the page.
