Introduction

The donor portal dashboard is the landing point for donor users logging into ScholarshipUniverse. This page is used to give high level insights as to the current status of scholarships associated to the donor. Each donor role will have access to the page, but different tiles and insights are available based on the user's role permissions.



Dashboard Data

The dashboard page hosts a variety of tiles that navigate users to a particular area of the donor portal. Depending on a user's role, some tiles and insights may not be visible.


Please note that under the Dashboard page title, an indicator will display the last time all of the data on the screen was updated. A user may manually refresh the data by clicking the Refresh icon - this can only be done once a minute.


The user can also filter by one Award Year at a time, determined by the drop down above the tiles.

 

The Dashboard contains the following tiles:

  • Funds Available: the sum of all of the budgeted award money across all of the donor's scholarships for the selected award year
    • This tile is available to the donor Admin role only and when clicked on will navigate to the Scholarships page
  • Posted Awards: the sum of all of the posted award money across all of the donor's scholarships for the selected award year; please note Posted means that it has been sent to the institution's student information system (SIS)
    • This tile is available to the donor Admin role only and when clicked on will navigate to the Scholarships page
  • Funds Available: the sum of all of the remaining award budget across all of the donor's scholarships for the selected award year
    • This tile is available to the donor Admin role only and when clicked on will navigate to the Scholarships page
  • Students Awarded: a count of students awarded across all of the donor's scholarships for the selected award year
    • This tile is available to both the donor Admin and Viewer roles and when clicked on will navigate to the Scholarships page
  • Unread Thank Yous: a count of thank you letters not viewed by the user; this is for letters associated to all of the donor's scholarships for the selected award year
    • This tile is available to both the donor Admin and Viewer roles and when clicked on will navigate to the Thank You page


The Dashboard contains the following insights:

  • Application Volume: a trend of the applicant volume within the given range in time for scholarships within the selected award year. This is defaulted to display the last 30 days, grouped by weeks. Users can change the date range by the last 30 days, 60 days, 3 months, and 6 months; they can also change the view by days, weeks, and months. By hovering over each pinpoint on the chart the exact count will appear.
    • This insight is available to both the donor Admin and Viewer roles
  • Posted Award Tracking: a visual representation of the amount of budget already awarded and remaining across all scholarships within the selected award year.
    • This insight is available to only the donor Admin role
  • Posted Award Tracking: a visual representation of the amount of budget already awarded and remaining per scholarship within the selected award year.
    • This insight is available to only the donor Admin role



Managing Dashboard Display

At any time a user may manage the display of tiles and insight. Tiles may be reordered as well.


  • Click on the Cog Icon to manage the display of dashboard items.


The Edit Dashboard modal allows users to view the tiles and insight they have permission to. Users can disable a tile or insight, or they can even reorder tiles by dragging and dropping them to change the order.



Switching Donor Groups

Some donors users may be associated to different Donors associated to the institution. If a donor user is found to be an active user to more than one Donor group, they have the ability to switch between the different Donor groups, essentially updating all of the information they are viewing on the page as well. Donor users can only view data from one Donor group at a time.

  • A donor user may select to view a different Donor group's data by selecting a Donor group from the top banner near their profile name


Note: If a donor user is only associated to one Donor group, they will not see this drop down available.
