Deciphering the Dashboard

Learn your way around the Reader Zone dashboard

Using the Dashboard

The strength of Reader Zone is how reading data and your reading programs are visible on the dashboard. Let’s walk through each element of the dashboard.

On the top right of the of the dashboard are my at-a-glance reading metrics.  I can see the reading progress for the entire account for the last seven days, last 30 days or all time.

I can also see my reader counts that include active readers, inactive readers and others.

The search function allows me to search my programs.  Search results will auto-populate as I type in the search field. This Search function changes as I move from Reading Programs to Reading Groups and then Readers.  

My Reading Programs lined up in the center of the page.  In the top row of the dashboard, I see the number of readers in each Program, the Program type and the completion progress of the given program.

The default view for your programs is a list. However, the view can be changed to a graph or a card view by clicking on the view widget just to the right of the search field.

By clicking on the menu icon within any view, I can edit, archive, clone or delete the reading program. The Advanced editor allows me to change the program type and change the parameters for any or all of my activities or groups that are a part of the program, including awards.

By clicking on any Reading Program, I can see all the Reading Groups or Activities associated with the Program. The metrics on the top change to reflect the overall progress for this Reading Program only.

You can see that the top of the page shows me where I am in terms of Reading Program and Reading Group at all time.

From the Programs page, I can add a Program, from the Groups/Activities page, I can add a Group or Activity to the selected program..

Along the left side of the page, I can access other features of the account that will be covered in other videos.
