Why you should attend this seminar?

If you want to know how to configure bespoke graphs, charts and counts in i2 - then this seminar is for you.  Dashboard functionality is brand new from 2.14 upwards and this session is a great introduction if you want to know how to set up dashboard views for yourself, your team or the entire agency.

This graphical element also appears in other areas of i2 too, from version 2.14 Paprika introduced Job Tracker, a tool where you can create individual job dashboards. In version 2.18 Super Project Tracker is now available and will also let you create individual dashboards per Super Project. Additionally, this course has also been updated to include the new dashboard functionality available in 2.18. The same dashboard logic applies across all versions and this course will provide you with the knowledge needed to configure all Paprika dashboards, for the job and for the agency.

Who should attend this seminar?

This course requires participants to have a working knowledge of how browsers work and is suitable for both Finance and Account Handlers/ Project Managers. Please be aware that dashboards are only available from i2 2.14 upwards, therefore, if you have recently upgraded or are thinking about upgrading then it is an ideal opportunity to familiarise yourself with this new functionality.

Who are the course leaders?

Benjamin Baker, part of the Client Engagement team, will be leading the session. This course was initially designed by Benjamin and our founder, Nick Tomlinson, in response to the new dashboard functionality released back in 2016. Since then, Benjamin has been advising Paprika clients and helping them create bespoke agency dashboards. Today, having built an extensive library of example dashboard views to show you, he's become something of a dashboards expert - Be warned, though, you may experience symptoms of dashboard envy! He now heads up this course with fellow Client Engagement Consultant, India.

India Quow has a unique understanding of Paprika, she advises from a consultancy perspective at Paprika and has a great ability to apply her expert knowledge of Paprika to other agency businesses. India and Ben are on this course to discuss what's possible and to help make your dashboard dreams happen.

What do I need to bring with me?

This is an interactive group session using i2 2.18 test data. You will need to bring your laptops with you. The second half of this session will be dedicated to creating your own dashboard views with our Paprika experts on hand to help. Our technical team will need to set up test data for each attendee and provide a web link prior to this session - so it is important to book onto this seminar allowing time to arrange this.

We encourage you to make notes throughout with the course materials provided. You will receive a training manual which covers all of the examples discussed throughout the 1st half of the seminar, screenshots of all of Benjamin's example dashboards and a copy of his dashboard views which you can import onto your Paprika database via 'View Maintenance' - we will show you how to do this.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the session. Breakfast is available for the AM session and Lunch for the PM session.
