Employee Dashboard Overview

The Dashboard acts as a Control Panel for users allowing them to access key information, links, Reports and so on. The Dashboard is a fully customisable component of Subscribe-HR. Each Dashboard can be specific to a User Group. As Standard Subscribe-HR allows you to configure what is located in a users dashboard by selecting the relevant options in User Group Permissions, which is located under Maintenance. Dashboards can easily be re configured and additional add-in options can be included into your system. This can be done by a Subscribe-HR Developer and is a very quick and cost effective task.
