The Dashboard provides a quick way for you to see the "health" of your company in terms of customer demands vs. delivery capabilities. And, allows you "drill down" capability so that you can quickly delve into the details where your attention is needed. All of the items on this Dashboard are also accessible from the main vertical menu. However, the Dashboard provides the higher level @ a glance view and minimizes the number of drill downs needed to get to your critical information. The Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you login to your Stitchex account and as you navigate away from it, you can quickly return by clicking "Dashboard" on the main left vertical menu -- it's the first menu option!
Getting Started Guide
If you are new to Stitchex, you may want to walk thru the Getting Started Guide located at the top of your Dashboard screen.
The Getting Started Guide will walk you through a check list of task that will help you get started with the basics. (Note the image below does not depict the full checklist. See your Getting Started Guide for the full list.)
You can also receive "notifications" (alerts) for key activities that take place within your organization from your Showroom, eCommerce and Accounting integrations. These are displayed in red on the "bell" in the top right corner of your dashboard.
Use the Upcoming Invoices section of the dashboard to see invoices that are due as well as the outstanding balances. These are listed in ascending chronological order by due date. Using the blue vertical bar on the right, hold your left mouse button to drag down to see additional invoices with outstanding amounts and their due dates. If you want to see the details of the invoice, just left click on the invoice.
Upcoming Ship Windows
Use the Upcoming Ship Windows section of the dashboard to see when you need to start shipping products. These are listed in ascending chronological order by date. Using the blue vertical bar on the right, hold your left mouse button to drag down to see additional product shipping windows. If you want to see the details of the order, just left click on the order.
Customer Orders / Production Orders / Projected Revenue & Gross Profit
Using the tabs at the top, you can select "By Season" or "By Year". By Season allows you to view how your orders are progressing for your Seasons from a revenue, profit and inventory (supply/demand) perspective. Use By Year if you want to compare how you performed in prior years.
The Activity section at the bottom of the dashboard allows you to see what changes are happening within your organization. And, it gives you a quick way to drill down into orders that were received or products being shipped with a click of a button.
Note: You can also see Activity grouped by Activity, Spreadsheet Imports and Email Messages by navigating to Settings>Activity.
