The TES Dashboard provides an overview of your TES account and includes the following features: Where are equivalencies distributed?, User Activity, My Tasks, Account Activity, and New catalogs for schools to which we have equivalents.
Where are equivalencies distributed?
This section of the dashboard displays an infographic showing where you have equivalencies established across the United States. The larger the bubble, the more equivalencies you have to that institution/region. This can help your areas of focus in regards to building equivalencies and suggest places where you might want to proactively build equivalencies to attract new out-of-state students with Transferology. There is also a list of the top 3 schools for which you have equivalencies established.
User Activity is an overview of who is using your TES account. You can see the total number of users in your account, the number of users who are active when the page loads, the number of users who have logged in this week, the number of users who have not logged in for 30 days, and the number of users who haven’t logged in in the past year. Currently, you can not find out who these specific users are from the dashboard, but if you have a high number of users who haven’t logged in over a year, you might want to make sure they still require access. TES Administrators can see data for individuals using the Manage: Usage Statistics screen, and email all the users in their account at once using the email user(s) feature in User Management.
My Tasks gives some insight into the Evaluation Tracker workflow usage in your account. You get a quick look to see if you have any evaluation tasks to do. If you have evaluation tracker user rights, you can click the number next to the “Evaluations To-Do” and be taken to My Evaluations in the workflow. We also included some stats for your account. You can see the total number of evaluations in your account, the number of open tasks, and the total number of closed evaluations.
The account activity graph shows the number of actions taken by all TES users in your account and compares your own individual actions for a 1-year time period. For every action you take in TES (view a course, view a profile, create a task, create an eq, etc.), an activity is recorded for your user account. In the example shown, you can see that most of the usage in my account is from me, except in May when I switched which user I logged in with. Hopefully your account looks a little more diverse than mine.
New catalogs for schools to which we have equivalents.
This is a running list of schools with whom you already have at least one equivalency that recently had a new catalog added to TES. To get this information, TES checks against all the equivalencies in your account to see if a new catalog has been added for any of the schools associated with source courses. The dashboard report displays the 10 most recent institutions that have had catalog updates in TES. It does not check to see if those catalogs are the new “new” catalog just a new catalog for TES. So, if CollegeSource were to add a missing catalog form 1998 for an institution, it would show on this list even though it is older. If you click the name of the institution, you will be taken to that institution’s page in Course Finder. This is a running list, so if you want to stay on top of when new catalogs get added, check back often.
