How to manage the Pupil Asset Dashboard

Summary 

The Pupil Asset dashboard is the first screen you see when you login. You can add widgets to it and customise them so that you have access to the information most useful to you, quickly. Each widget is like a little window into an area of Pupil Asset. Once you’ve set it up it will stay on your dashboard and show the information you’ve asked for. 


Basic dashboard settings

By default, a selection of widgets will be preloaded to your dashboard, depending on your access level and which Pupil Asset product your school has. You can move, remove, or configure them to show you the information you need.

MIS users will have their timetable on the left hand side of the screen. Clicking on a lesson, club or event allows you to take the register for that group. You will also be able to see relevant behaviour, results, and statistics for the group.

Widget settings

In the top-right of your screen is a + New Widget button which gives you access to 30+ customisable widgets.

Every widget has three dots in the top right corner. This opens the widget settings, where you configure the widget to show the information you want.

You can have more than one instance of the same widget. So if for example, you want to see attendance statistics for a specific cohort over different time periods, you can see them side by side. This is also useful for MIS users who can use widgets to see information about their current class, and their next class, quickly and easily.

The best way to decide which widgets to include on your dashboard is simply to try switching them on and see which you find most helpful. The three dots in the corner will show you the options you have to configure them, and also give you the option to delete it from your dashboard. You'll also find a reset option which returns your dashboard to the default set up.
