Searching Searching Records

Searching is a breeze as the system searches multiple fields to find what you are looking for. e.g You don't need to know and accounts key filed to be able to key a transaction, you can simply search by description, name, barcode etc.  If you want to add a filed to the list of places the system searches, then you can using a profile setting.

When keying transactions, if the search returns only one row then it is automatically selected.

Dashboards  Dashboards

Dashboards are a screen area where you can add one or more reporting widgets. These widgets can be tiled. Dashboards can often have a tabbed page layout enabling you to have multiple widgets within the same dashboard even if they don't comfortably fit within one tiled screen.

There are 5 types of widget.

  • Grid: This is a simple tabular presentation of a custom query. A column can be designated to drill to one of the screens in EXO e.g drill to customer or product definition. e.g. Customer Sales History.
  • Pivot table: This is a graphical widget. You can drill down to see the data from which the pivot graph was derived. e.g This months opportunities by stage.
  • Clarity Report: Clarity is the inbuilt report designer.  A report which returns a small amount of visible data  can be paced in the dashboard. e.g. Jobs nearing Completion.
  • URL: Include a web page from any site. e.g current exchange rates at bank site.
  • Checklist: A user defined list of items or actions to be ticked off. e.g. End of Period / Year procedures.
  • Form Widget:  There are some hard-coded widgets provided. e.g a LinkedIn viewer.
