Productivity Dashboard Breakdown

  1. Filters and Date Pickers
    1. Filters: The filter drop-down contains every "Department" that is pulled via the IDP integration of the customer
      • User can select All Departments, Multiple Departments or Single Department by clicking "Show Only"
      • User can only single select the department filter - "None", to count all the UIDs that do not have a value in the IDP department attribute
      • The "department" data is updated in real time
      • The data shown on every report on this page relates to the chosen filter
    2. Date Picker: Likewise, The data shown on every report in this page relates to the chosen date range.
  2. General Productivity Metrics
    1. Productivity:
      • Productivity = 0.5 * (Avg. Working Day / Working Day Capacity) + 0.5 * (Active Employees Ratio / Full Employee Capacity)
      • Working Day Capacity is set at 8.5 hours. This can be reconfigured by a request to your Account Manager.
      • Full Employee Capacity is set yo 0.9. This can be reconfigured by a request to your Account Manager.
    2. Active Employees:
      • The value in the large font is the number of Active Employees (Employees who had at least one session, only in a monitored system)
      • The value in the small font ("Total X Employees") is the total number of monitored employees, i.e. employees who had at least one session on an extension installed browser (either in a monitored or non-monitored system). This is 100% of potential unique employees. Users are counted via a pulse event that is sent via the extension once a day.
      • The % in the small font ("X% of") is the ratio between Active Employees and Total Employees. Active Employees Ratio = Active Employees / Total Employees
    3. Avg. Working Day:
      • Calculated as the average sum of durations of all browser sessions during the selected period, divided by the number of days in the period
      • Avg. Working Day = (session duration sum / number of users) / (number of days in selected period)
  3. Employees by Region
    1. Table: Shows a breakdown of the top 5 countries with the highest number of employees, and the ratio of the total number of employees who has the extension installed
    2. Map: Shows the geographic distribution of Active Employees by top 5 countries
      • Hovering over a country shows the number of Active Employees in the country, as a percentage of total Employees.
  4. Systems Used
    1. Shows the breakdown of usage of all systems tracked by:
      • Active Users and (% of All Users) who have used the system in the defined period
      • Weekly Usage Per User - Average number of hours per week per Active User who have used the system in the defined period
      • Active Users = Active Employees
    2. Search for a specific platform via the search bar
    3. Sort the table by any of the 5 columns, by clicking on the column's title
      Please note:

      The number of Active Users shown here might differ compared to what is seen in the Systems Overview Dashboard. This is due to the different logic that counts the users - Systems Overview relies on EUID, while the Productivity Dashboard counts users based on the CS EUID.

IDP Integration

  • Department filter uses the “department” attribute, which can either be integrated directly using IDP or mapped manually by request.
  • Important: This dashboard relies on the “department” (lowercase "d") attribute from the IDP integration. In case the attribute in the customer's IDP integration is named differently, you should map your attribute manually, as needed.
