TIM Tools 6.0 Administration Guide

Admin Center Dashboard

The Admin Center opens to a Dashboard screen. The Dashboard screen provides a brief summary of information pertaining to your site, including an overview of participation rates within each of the TIM Tools. Members who have school-level administrative rights will see the data just for their school. Those with zone-level rights will see the data for their zone. District administrators will see a summary of data for the entire district.

Figure 1. Admin Center Dashboard.

The Admin Panel at the top left displays the TIM Tools version number as well as a summary of how many members, zones, and schools have been entered into the system. Note that the panel also indicates the number of Inactive Members. For data integrity purposes in reporting, members are not deleted from the system. Instead, if someone leaves the school or district, that person’s status is changed to “inactive.”

There is a separate panel for each of the following: ARTI, TIM-LP, TIM-O, TIM-R, and TUPS. The default view displays a summary of usage of each tool. Members with district- or zone-level rights will see View and Hide options to display the data broken out by school.
