Create a Manager Dashboard

Creating a Dashboard for each of your managers will make it easy for them to keep an eye on their Agents. They will have a view that only shows information that is relevant to them making it easy to keep their team running as efficiently as possible.

Creating the Custom Field

The first thing you need to do is create a custom field to identify each Agents' manager.

Add a new custom Agent field

  1. Go to ManageSettingsCustom Agent Fields.
  2. Click Add to add the new field.
  3. Type Manager in the Display Name field.
  4. Click on Save.

A new column is added for the new field.

Head to the Agents page to verify that a new column called Manager shows in the Agents table.

Update the Agents

Double-click to update the field.

Double-click in the Manager cell to update the field with their manager's name, e.g. "Steve."

Select multiple Agents using the checkboxes.

Bulk update Agents using the multi-select boxes on the left. Select the Agents then click Edit in the right-panel.

Type, or select, the name of the Manager.

Type the name of the Manager in the right text box or select a value from the drop down and hit Save.

Create the Dashboard

We're now ready to create the Dashboard. Click on Dashboards twice to open the dashboard management page.

Select + Create Shared Dashboard.

Use the manager's name as this Dashboard's name, e.g. "Steve", and hit OK.

Edit the new dashboard.

Open this Dashboard, click on the three dots next to the name and select Edit Graphs. Delete all of the widgets on this page by clicking on the "x" in the upper right of each box and hit Save at the top.

Now that we've got a blank slate we can build our masterpiece.
