Your Dashboard Got a Facelift
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Stackpop Release Notes! We’ll publish a comprehensive synopsis here for each major update.
Without further adieu, let’s dive right in and introduce you to YOUR NEW DASHBOARD!
We pulled the Spend by Month graph out of the reporting suite and dropped it front and center. It’s a quick snapshot that tracks your overall IT Infrastructure spend over the past 12 months - hover over the graph line to highlight your exact monthly spend down to the penny.
We’ve also streamlined the overview tables at the top of the dashboard. Reborn as “Your Summary”, we condensed Monthly Spend, Contracted Spend and Contracts into a single toolbar. Click on each section to dig deeper and reveal breakdowns of monthly spend for the 3 past and 2 future months, contracted spend by vendor and contracts by status.
Oh, and that little red circle in contracts section? That’s just a little heads up indicating how many contracts you have expiring soon; hopefully helping you keep on top of everything with as few mouse clicks as possible.
In addition to these nip/tucks, we added a side bar below and to the right of the graph with some handy dandy info. Here you’ll be able to access to your White Glove email address as well as view a log of recent activity in your company’s account. Managers, now you can see who changed what and when (!) — and for those of you not yet using White Glove, give me a shout (email@example.com) and let’s explore how my team can make uploading your costs even easier!
Marketplace Service Providers
Don’t worry Providers, we didn’t forget about you! We added some great new features for you too.
Similar to the ICM customers’ dashboard, upon login, you now have a nice big visual representation of your Stackpop presence. We built you a map with a sweet data visualization overlay highlighting each of your inventory locations on the Stackpop Marketplace. Not only can you now ‘see’ all of your inventories geographically, but by clicking through you can directly access each of your inventories easier and faster.
As you can see from the map above, each city in which you have Infrastructure service for sale will be tagged with a number and color-coded. The number represents the total listings in that city with gray representing Colocation, purple for Connectivity, and brown for Dedicated Hosting.
Providers, your new ‘Summary’ toolbar has been streamlined as well to keep the details for Inventories, Coupons, Orders and Contracts tucked away nicely in dropdowns. Clicking on each section reveals a breakdown by status; click through again to reach the full list. Just another way we’re making it easier to manage your infrastructure sales funnel.
I’ll keep publishing release notes each time we have a major release to make sure that each of you is up-to-date and getting the most out of your Stackpop account.
And of course, WE LOVE FEEDBACK, so if you have a feature request, suggested improvement or even gripes, send me an email and we’ll get it in the queue.
