The powerful monitoring and instant reporting tool used to monitor volume and freshness of data
Groupcall Dashboard has been created to monitor the health of schools using Xporter. As with all Groupcall’s products, security is of paramount importance and Dashboard communicates securely over HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) – encrypted data transfer used on the Internet and is hosted on the Microsoft Azure Cloud, therefore is totally web based and subject to the extensive Azure security policies. Dashboard features a unique heartbeat function that monitors your schools’ data flow. Using an intuitive traffic light system, you will have the ability to easily spot where there are issues and drill down into individual schools so the problems can be investigated and resolved i.e. if data has not been delivered over the last 24 hours.
Dashboard gives you the ability to provide a pro-active support function to your schools. Daily or weekly logs will instantly report on those schools where the extract has been received successfully, failed once or persistently (user defined parameters) and you will also have the control to change extract schedules within the schools. This is particularly useful if you wish to run job ‘now’ or if you wanted to force a full data extract from the MIS, rather than just the changes.
You will have complete control of access rights for other authority staff and the school users, depending on their role and function.
At a glance you will have the ability to:
- See the status of all Xporter installs
- See all Xporter extracts running in each school
- See an overview of all Xporter actions.
Visualise your Xporter Status
To help you easily reach the information you need quickly we have released Dashboard Pivot, powered by Microsoft Pivot. The easy-to-use and versatile web tool allows you to visually monitor and group installations on a wide range of criteria that you can adjust on the fly as your needs change day by day.
Repeatable, Auditable, Mass Configuration
As well as allowing you to make remote configuration changes to single Xporter installations using Dashboard Rollout Manager you can also carry out a large number of activities across multiple schools in one go, such as running jobs, resetting deltas, making configuration changes, restarting services and checking for software updates. Just pick the schools you want to include and apply the action to them all. Dashboard Rollout Manager will then show you whether the action has been carried out for each school and the action audit log for watch school will show the activity details.
Data can be refreshed at the push of a button and will show data updates from the last hour. There are a number of reports that can be extracted from Dashboard, including:
- LA wide overview of attendance for all pupils and LAC students.
- Sessional attendance for individual schools and individual pupil information.
