Your Dashboard provides an overview of all your assigned tasks; it’s where you stay in-the-know with the latest Activity Feed posts and follow conversations across projects for which you’re a participant. Without leaving the dashboard, you can reply to comments, see outstanding invoices, and access the Task Details side panel to adjust statuses, assign team members, and more.
You can access the Dashboard from the left-hand nav bar.
The People panel lets you see some of the others you share your Mavenlink account with (your seven most-recent members). It also allows you to quickly access and edit your Mavenlink profile. If you're an Account Administrator, you'll be able to see the total number of account members (in parentheses) and have access to an Add (“ ”) icon that allows you to quickly invite new members to your account.
Time and Utilization Tracking
Think of the Time and Utilization Tracking panel as your personal utilization manager; it provides three sections of important metrics that give you a high degree of visibility on how you are performing against time targets and utilization goals. In addition, it helps promote best practices by serving as a reminder that you need to submit time to increase your utilization and meet your goals.
The Tracked Today section shows a single gray bar that represents your available capacity (standard workweek, minus time off and holidays) for the day. Therefore, if there are no hours scheduled for today's date in your workweek, you won't see a bar.
As you track time for today, the bar will fill proportionally with blue. If you go over your available capacity, the bar turns yellow and you are informed of how many hours you are over.
The Tracked This Week section contains a bar chart that shows your daily available capacity (standard workweek, minus time off and holidays) in comparison to the actual hours you've worked for the week. As you track time, the individual gray bars fill proportionally with blue. If you go over your available capacity, the bars will turn yellow. Hovering over any individual bar will show you the number of hours you have tracked for that day.
In the Billable Utilization section, you can see how you are tracking against your targets for the week, month, and year. This section can reflect future billable utilization targets set in advance; please see the Future Billable Utilization table in the Account Members Details side panel for more information.
The Time and Utilization Tracking panel can be disabled and/or configured in General Settings.
The Projects panel is where you'll see up to four of the latest projects you've been working on, including the project's current status. The percent complete of a project is calculated by dividing the total number of tasks by the number of completed tasks.
The Activity Feed panel is where you'll find the latest posts, files, and changes to projects for which you belong. You can view details and respond to posts just like you can in the project Activity tab.
If you are assigned any tasks that are past due or due in the next seven days, you'll see them in the Tasks panel, sorted by due date. This gives you immediate access to task details.
If you have Project Lead permissions (or higher) and participants on the Provider-side of the project are using Mavenlink for invoicing, the Invoices panel allows you to see outstanding invoices across all of your projects.
