Dashboard Pie Charts
One of the great features in GAGEtrak is the Dashboard, which organizes and presents important, time-sensitive information in an easy-to-read format. In the last Tech Tip, we covered the
Calibrations Due List on the Dashboard; now, let's explore the pie charts.
The pie charts display the
Top 5 Gage Status counts in your system and graphically indicate the number of gages that are coming due, the number of gages that are past due and the number of gages that are not currently due within the date range specified in
It is important to understand, however, that the pie charts will only display gages with a status of Active or any other status for which you have checked the Include in
Lists of Due Gages checkbox within
Setup -> Status IDs. This feature allows the user greater control over the disposition of their gages.
Navigate to the
Settings -> General tab -> Dashboard Due List pane. The settings chosen here dictate how the program displays due, past due and not due.
- Start Frequency: when set to 1 Day, the due list will start at today's date.
- End Frequency: when set to 30 Days, for instance, the list will show all gages due within the next 30 days.
- Include Past Due: checking this checkbox nullifies the Start Frequency, as this will make the list include all gages that are past due and currently due, up to the End Frequency.
