Tool’s Menu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chronicle has moved the tools menu to the large Chronicle Icon button in the upper left corner of Chronicle which is visible on all tabs. There you can edit which tools to view, unpin content, view your version number and see your Chronicle Support ID. You can pin jobs, documents, people, and organizations to this list for easy access. You will find the "pin button" on the jobs, people, or organizations tabs or for the documents from within in the files of jobs, people, or organizations. When you want to unpin content click on the "unpin content" button found on the Tool's Menu and select which ones you want to unpin.

Calendar

Chronicle’s current calendar is still functional and on the Calendar tab. However, to view the new Calendar click on the “Test New Calendar” button which you will find in the ribbon on the main Calendar tab. Or go to a job file, highlight an activity, and select the “Schedule” button. This will open the new calendar. On the calendar grid you can highlight the time frame of the event which will automatically open the “New Calendar Event” box or click on the "Add" button and it will open. Then complete the various parts of the event details and save.

Dashboards:

Much like the heat gauge on the dashboard of your car, Chronicle’s dashboards will give you, at a glance, high-level metrics of your business using key performance indicators and pivot grids. Patterns will emerge telling you how your business is doing in real time. Once you have created your dashboards you can drill down into the data by clicking on the tile.
