Activity Board

Last Updated February 1, 2024

Brief Overview

The Activity Board app in the Console, accessible at console.walkme.com/activity-board, provides key data to understand and analyze the performance of your WalkMe content. The Activity Board provides users with weekly “at a glance” insights that they can effectively act on in order to optimize their WalkMe content as part of their weekly workflow.

Monitor and track content progress by selecting the systems and creators for the views you wish to create. Filtering by creator allows users to personalize Board View content by segmenting per individual, manager, or team, as well as for specific systems.

Key characteristics:

  • Quick access to key insights
  • Data is visualized and easy to digest
  • Updates weekly
  • Easily subscribe, share, and export with others

Use Cases

  • Get a quick overview of account status (number of systems, number of items in production, number of team members)
  • Identify what’s working and what’s not, and leverage learnings to optimize content
  • Identify what content is broken and why
  • Understand what content is unused and should be cleaned or updated
