How to Add or Remove Metrics on the Dashboard

Add metrics to your dashboard to keep tabs on the performance of your team and the efficiency of your warehouse all from one place.

The dashboard provides a quick view of your key metrics. You can add or remove any metrics that will help you understand your warehouse or employee performance. You can also click on any metrics on the dashboard to see detailed results.

Here are some examples of common metrics Infoplus users have on their dashboard: 

  • Backorders
  • Open Work Tickets
  • Open Orders
  • Orders Shipped in Last __ Hours

NOTE: To see a Wallboard view of your metrics (full-screen view), click the View Wallboard link. See View Metrics as a Wallboard for more information.

You can personalize and create these metrics specifically for your business needs. They are entirely customizable and can pull any data from within Infoplus. Then, you can set parameters so the metric can alert you when it is in a 'good', 'bad', or 'neutral' state (per your standards). 

Pro Tip: Metrics are set up on a user-by-user basis. This means if User A is logged in and sets up their metrics on the dashboard, Person B will not see those same metrics and will need to set the same metrics on their dashboard as well (if they want the same one).
