When a product like Trajecsys is around for as long as 12 years, it grows and changes in unexpected ways. Over the years, our product's become more powerful and feature-rich; but as complexity grows, so does the need to think more carefully about how and where pages are presented. We believe that our re-imagined admin panel menu will lead to a simpler and more efficient experience for all Trajecsys Report System users.
To the left, you'll see our entire new menu, spread out in a way you'll never actually see inside the app. We're reducing from 15 categories, not ideally organized, to 10 sections, designed with your real-world use of our features in mind.
A common trend, in addition to better grouping, is that pages are organized by how likely you are to need them. The higher the placement on the menu, or higher a sub-item in that menu, the more likely you will access that page. We hope your experience, like that of our beta testers, is that this new menu improves your use of our system.
Below is a summary of what you will find on each page.
The new Users Section contains all the pieces required for user and account management.
All time-clock management can be found here, from approving time records to viewing absences.
This location stores your tools for communicating with your users. Announcements, uploaded documents, comments feed, and our mail system can all be found here.
If you want data, this is where all our reports have been moved. Instead of being stored in individual sections, all our exports, comp exam reports, evaluation reports, logsheet reports, etc. have been moved to this one section. They're ordered by category. In our modernized user interface (coming soon!), we plan also to let you collapse and expand each of those subcategories underneath.
This allows for quick access to fill out Comp Exams and Evaluations in one place.
COMP EXAM/LOG SETUP
We have separated the setup of Comps and Logsheets from the actual reporting of them. You're less likely to view these pages on a daily basis (or at all, for some programs), so they have been moved further down the menu.
We have separated the setup of Evaluations from the actual reporting of them. You're less likely to view these pages on a daily basis (or at all, for some programs), so they have been moved further down the menu.
For those programs that do CME reporting, this menu will be little changed, just slightly consolidated.
For those programs that use our assignment and scheduling modules, they're still formatted the same way you're used to.
SETTINGS AND FILTERS
Our settings and (when enabled) advanced filters are seldom, if ever, used by programs. They're definitely not accessed on a weekly or even monthly basis. They've been consolidated here at the bottom of the menu.
