In this article, we will explain what information you can find on the project dashboard, step by step.

Your project dashboard is a treasure trove of valuable information that can help you manage your projects like a pro. Using the image below, we'll walk you through what you can expect to find on your dashboard.

  1. This is the client for whom the project is.

  2. This is the project name.

  3. This is the duration of the project. It is only displayed if you have filled in a start and end date.

  4. The red line represents the project budget, which is only visible if the budget is in hours. Check out our article on different budget methods.

  5. The black line with dots shows the progress of the project in hours. Each dot represents a week, and if you hover your mouse over it, you'll see the total number of hours up to that week.

  6. The gray line represents the number of scheduled hours on the project planning.

    With points 4, 5, and 6, you can see the progress of your project at a glance.

  7. This number represents the total number of hours written on a project.

  8. This shows how your project is progressing compared to the budget.

  9. These are the costs you have incurred on the project, consisting of the sum of employee purchase hour rate and any expenses. If your costs are 0, you haven't registered any expenses or specified the employee purchase hour rate. Check out our article on how to do that.

  10. This is the amount that remains unpaid on a project, depending on the chosen invoicing method. Learn more about different invoicing methods. If this number is 0 despite the hours written, check out our article on how to solve it.

  11. This is the amount that has already been invoiced.
