You know how it is. Someone you know gets a new luxury car, and the first thing you do is ask to slide into the front seat, and oh … it feels so extravagant! You run your hands over the smooth leather, settle them on the steering wheel, and then immediately examine the dashboard. It’s the central hub – the command center – where you can see all the action and monitor everything from oil levels to RPMs.
That’s kind of how our Dashboard is … it’s the first thing you’ll see when you log in to Redbooth. And while we don’t include leather extras or built-in OnStar Navigation, our Dashboard helps you stay on top of all the tasks and conversations you’re following, whether they are assigned to you or not. It’s the command center … where you can catch up on the latest activity without cluttering your email inbox.
So, start maximizing your Redbooth collaboration performance today by taking a look at some of the Dashboard’s basic functions.
Real-Time Project Management Notifications.
Redbooth sends you real-time notifications for any task, note or conversation you’re following. It also:
- gives you a quick view of your Tasks for Today.
- allows you to reply to messages on the spot or mark notifications as read.
- refreshes with activity in real-time, even across multiple browser tabs!
Dashboard allows you to reply to tasks or conversations on the spot:
Notifications are also listed by date and project, which helps you identify them quickly. You can clear them one by one, or clear all of them with just one click:
If you navigate away from the Dashboard to another page in Redbooth, you can always easily see if there are new updates with the notification count on the sidebar. Whenever there’s an update in a project, the sidebar will automatically bring that project’s notifications to the beginning of the notifications list. This way you always see the newest updates first.
Dismissing dashboard notifications as they are appearing will stop the associated email notifications from being sent to your inbox. The system recognizes that you’ve already seen the notification, hence it processes that you don’t need to receive a second notification by email. (Note: any dismissed notifications cannot be recovered.)
Dashboard Element Display.
The dashboard will only display elements you are watching, meaning you have been added as a user to notify, you have created those elements, or somebody else has assigned that task to you.
For a view of all activity, regardless if you are watching it or not, take a look at the All Activity view.
All Activity tab.
Use this tab if you want an overview of what’s currently happening inside your Redbooth. Every action from uploading a file to updating a task, conversation or note will appear here in a chronological order.
The most recent actions appear at the top, and as you scroll down, you move back in time and see what was done throughout your organization.
Move through your notifications like a pro with the following keyboard shortcuts:
- Up/down (or j/k) to navigate the threads.
- Backspace to mark threads as read.
- Enter (or right key) to select a thread (task or conversation) on the reply or add comment box. See your reply instantly within the thread.
- Esc to go back to keyboard navigation.
