Below are some of the available widgets in the Employees Dashboard (HR Dashboard) page.

    • Note: Any widgets available in the Employees Dashboard (HR Dashboard) page will also be available on the My Dashboard page. Also, all widgets can be renamed.
  • Org Chart


    The Org Chart (Employee Reporting Tree) is a great way to get to know the different Employees in your Company, their roles, and who reports to who. This chart is a vertically-aligned diagram that is expandable to show Employees and their direct reports. Each Employee has an informational icon ( i ) that links to their Employee card.

  • Recap


    With this HR Dashboard & Reporting Guide, we’ve discovered how to navigate and utilize the HR Dashboard in order to manage your Employee and Candidate information more easily. We’ve discussed the Org Chart and described how it establishes and reflects the managerial hierarchy of Employees in your Company. Additionally, we’ve reviewed the reporting options available for tracking page visits within your Striven system.


  • Is there a quick and easy way to clear all the widgets I’ve added and start over with a fresh Dashboard?


    Yes. You can always reset the Employee/HR Dashboard settings to the system default by clicking the Manage Widgets button and clicking the link to Reset to Default. This will clear your Dashboard of all widgets that have been added during your Dashboard configuration efforts. Then you are free to start dragging/dropping the widgets you wish to display back into the columns you desire.

  • Do I have to keep my Employee and Candidate widgets on the same HR Dashboard?


    If you wish to separate your Employee Dashboard from an HR Dashboard for Candidates, you may do so by creating a new Dashboard in your Striven system. By clicking on the Dashboard icon on the top right menu bar, you will be directed to the general Dashboard page. There you will find a drop-down menu on the left side with the option to Manage your Dashboards.

    From this page, you will be able to edit or add a new Dashboard for your desired use. You can name it something like “Candidate Dashboard” and select the HR-related recruiting widgets you wish to see displayed there. You can even change the Dashboard icon next to the Dashboard name by clicking on the icon displayed and selecting a new icon or new icon color, from the selection available.

    You can easily switch between your different Dashboards by selecting them from the same drop-down menu next to the Dashboard name.
