Dashboards are each user’s “home” in PensionPro; where a user can see various information related to the firms’ plans and projects. Dashboard tabs will vary from tier to tier. Here users can use these dashboards to view uncompleted tasks, manage sales leads, To-Dos, Milestones, and manage workloads. 


Software Required: Core, Essential, Premium, Track, Team, Business
Security Rights Required: N/A 

  Note: Some items may not be available in all tiers.

  Note: Tabs and fields will vary depending on the tier the user is on.




The Dashboard will display information related to the progress of projects launched in PensionPro. Information relayed in the dashboard tabs can be sorted, grouped, or filtered as desired. If a user has the View Other Dashboards security right, they can select to view other employee’s dashboards. 

Organizing Dashboards 

Users have quite a bit of flexibility regarding how they can view their dashboards. They can choose to sort, filter, group or reorder the information in many of their dashboards. Please note that changes to sorting, filters, groups, and reordered columns is not permanent and will return to defaults after the user closes out of PensionPro. 

Sort – To sort on a dashboard, simply click on a column header to sort by that column. 

Filter – To filter a column header, click the filter button and enter information to filter by and click “Filter.” 

Group – To group by certain data, click the Toggle Grouping button to the right of the grid and a grey banner will appear above the grid. Click and drag a column header to the banner to group by that column. 

Reorder – To reorder column headers, click and drag a column header to the desired location.
