Exploring the platform interface
- The Reports tab enables you to run reports, which are useful for administrative and managerial purposes. You can choose from a variety of report types and file formats, and gather more specific data by specifying the reporting period and user groups to include in the report. This tab includes the nested Dashboard view, Detailed Reports view, Saved Reports view, and Report Subscriptions view.
- The Dashboard view: This is the default view and primary area for managing summary reports. You can configure twelve different types of report, including Adoption Rate, Average Attempts, Task Usage, Top Programs, Average Time per Task, Recent Activity, Developer Activity - Top 10, Developer Activity History, Developer Activity Status, Developer Registration History, Drill Usage History, and Current Drill Usage. You can use the Control Panel to select the reports that you want to appear on your Dashboard.
- The Detailed Reports view: This view lets you generate thirty two different types of summary reports, enabling you to set the report criteria for each.
- The Saved Reports view: This view allows you to store and generate favorite reports.
- The Report Subscriptions view: This view enables you to subscribe to reports, as well as subscribe others to reports.
- The Users tab enables you to create new developer accounts. It includes the nested Developer View and the Group View, and enables you to manage developer account details, content allocation, and developer groups.
- The Developer View: This is the primary area for managing developers. You can list all developers associated with you or search for a subset of developers. Additionally, you can select one or more developers and perform a number of administrative actions for each. Some of the functionality available to you in this view includes creating new developer accounts, allocating content to developers, and editing, deleting, or transferring ownership of existing accounts.
- The Group View: You can group developers to help organize them for administrative tasks. This view lists the name, description, and number of members in a particular group, and also enables you to delete groups if necessary. A default group of developers associated with you is permanently stored on the system. This group cannot be deleted. Even if you create new groups for developers listed in the default group, those developers will still appear in the default group.
- The Administrators view: This view allows you to see all users with an admin level role and how their hierarchical relationship. The view enables you to move administrators around and to easily edit the user or view all developers associated with an administrator.
- The Assignments tab enables you to assign Drills, Applications, or even entire Developer Programs to your developers to promote topics that you feel are particularly relevant. In this way, you can ensure that developers working on specific projects within your organization all receive the same learning material to assist them in their real-world development duties.
- The Catalog tab enables you to control exactly what content your developers can access in the InnerWorkings catalog. Using this tab, you can create Developer Programs specifically targeted at your developers in accordance with the needs of your organization. In addition, the Catalog tab lets you hide any available tasks, Drills, or Developer Programs that you feel are not relevant to your developers, and instead direct them to content that addresses their on-the-job requirements.
- The Competitions tab enables you to create competitions that challenge developers to solve the most tasks within a given time period. You can choose an individual competition for yourself, or a team competition for groups of developers. The New Competition form lets you name and describe the competition, pick the start date, set the timeframe, and limit the competition to developers from your own organization. Other functionality in this tab enables you to view the competitions that you've joined, see the competitions that are available to join, and view the competitions that you have participated in.
- The Personal Tutor system is available to you through the Personal Tutor tab. Here you can send messages to and view replies from your Personal Tutor. The Personal Tutor tab consists of the Inbox, Compose, and Sent tabbed pages.
