When you install ResultsManager, you get a default set of Dashboard maps. These are designed to support daily working, reviews and maintenance.  If you are using ResultsManager Professional, you can modify them yourself or create new ones based on these Dashboard templates.

 

In the descriptions below, the "default owner" refers to the person entered as "Me" in the ResultsManager Options dialogue. Note that when ResultsManager creates Dashboards, it does not normally leave empty headings in the map. If a section of the Dashboard has nothing to display, the section title is not shown. So if your Dashboard maps do not contain examples everything mentioned below, the probable explanation is that your maps did not generate relevant activities.

 

 

Daily Actions Dashboard (Express User)

 

The basic Daily Actions Dashboard is designed to be quick and easy to use for daily delivery of actions. It shows Activities for the default owner:

 

The Daily Actions Dashboard (Express User) is available in both Express and Power User modes.

 

 

Daily Actions Dashboard (Power User)

 

The Power User version of the Daily Actions Dashboard gives more detail and extra information about delegated Activities. It shows Activities for the default owner:

 

The Power User version of the Daily Actions Dashboard is only available in Power User mode. You should normally be using the Automatic Delegation option to get the most from the Daily Actions Dashboard.

 

 

Priority Actions Dashboard (Express User)

 

The Priority Actions Dashboard is designed to show you only your most important activities, for days when you do not have time to think about  things. The dashboard shows Activities for the default owner:

 

The Express User version of the Priority Actions Dashboard is available in both Express and Power User modes. To get the most from using the Priority Actions Dashboards, you should mark your most important projects with the Priority 1 marker in your maps.

The Power User version of the Priority Actions Dashboard shows additional detail compared to the Express User version. The dashboard shows Activities for the default owner:

 

The Power User version of the Priority Actions Dashboard is only available in Power User mode. To get the most from using the Priority Actions Dashboards, you should mark your most important projects with the Priority 1 marker in your map.

The Sweep and Review Dashboard is designed to help you periodically sweep together new actions, review your projects, and re-plan your commitments. The dashboard shows Activities for the default owner:

 

The Sweep and Review Dashboard is available in both Express and Power User modes. See also the section on Reviewing and Refining action plans.

 

 

Sweep-up Dashboard  (Power User)

The "GTD" Lists dashboard is available in Express and Power User modes.

 

 

Outlook Synchronisation Dashboard

 

The Outlook Synchronisation Dashboard gathers together activities for the current owner, and creates a dashboard with each activity shown only once (a requirement for Outlook synchronisation). It also includes recently completed activities that have not yet been synchronised with Outlook, as well as In-tray topics for adding new tasks received from Outlook, and a list of committed projects.  This dashboard is used to synchronise your current tasks with Outlook.

 

 

Outlook Synchronisation Dashboard (Committed)

 

The Committed Outlook Synchronisation dashboard is almost identical to the regular Outlook Synchronisation Dashboard except that it only includes Committed actions.

 

 

Meeting Actions Dashboard

 

The  Meeting Actions Dashboard is designed to be used by meeting leaders, team leaders or managers, especially if they are the sole user of MindManager and ResultsManager in their team. Instead of listing activities from the viewpoint of a particular individual, it makes a list of all Activities for each person involved in the project or meeting. This includes:

 

The Meeting Map dashboard is available in Express and Power User modes. Because there are no date constraints, and all actions (not just Next Actions) are displayed, this Dashboard can grow very large if you create it across all your maps. It is designed to be used to create a map for handing out to the participants of a specific project or meeting, or a group of closely related projects or meetings. As such, you would usually only create it when viewing a specific meeting or project map, and not necessarily from your Map Central map.

 

Tip: you can generate a Dashboard from the perspective of anyone referenced in it. Enable the Dashboard template option to prompt for the "Dashboard owner", and ResultsManager will generate the dashboard from their individual perspective without making any other changes to your configuration. Note that you do not automatically see their other projects, which may not be accessible to you. You will only see activities in the maps that you can access.

 

 

Calendars Dashboard

 

The Calendars Dashboard displays activities for all dates:

Use this for reviewing longer range activities that may not appear in the regular dashboards for some time. The All-time Calendars dashboard is only available in Power User mode.

 

 

Maintenance Dashboard

 

The Maintenance Dashboard is designed to help you keep all your maps clean and tidy. It displays lists of Projects, Results and Actions organised by

 

You can use the Maintenance Dashboard to find instances of similar but not exactly identical names, and correct them to avoid ambiguity in other Dashboards. Only Activities where Contexts, Owners, Categories and Areas are explicitly defined are shown. Activities where this information is inherited inside the map are not displayed, for clarity and brevity. The Maintenance dashboard is only available in Power User mode.
