Commitments Dashboard Overview

The Commitments dashboard provides summary and detailed information about committed costs for your projects. For Vista, commitments are organized by parameters such as company, job, job status, phase, and cost type. For Specrum, commitments are also organized by job cost center, project manager, and master job.

Dashboard Tab

The Dashboard tab provides a variety of graphs.

  • For Vista: graphs include the percentage complete of your commitments, current and remaining costs by Job, Phase, Company, and Purchase Order/Subcontract Ledger, as well as invoiced amount and current cost, and paid amount by Job.

  • For Spectrum: graphs include the percentage complete of your commitments, total ordered and received by Job, Phase, and Vendor, materials ordered and received by Job, and subcontract amount and billed by Job.

Note that in each tile, you can scroll down to view each item. You can also hover over an item to view the details for that item.

You can filter the dashboard using the parameters in the four drop-down menus shown, by selecting a data point in one of the Dashboard tiles, or by right-clicking a data point and selecting the drill-through option. For example, you could use the drill-through option to see the status of an invoice organized by vendor.

For instructions on filtering, see Filter a Dashboard.
