Your Home Screen enables you to centralize and easily access the information that is important to you using icons for quick selection. You choose the different icons to add to the grid. The following explains the different components of information that are available. See Home Screen for a complete overview of how dashboards work and how to create, customize and manage them.
Select your icons in the Customize link in the bottom left corner of your Home Screen. Your organization may not use all the items listed.
Approval Lists are approval requests within which you are set as an approver. This enables you to see all the approvals that are assigned to you. Options for the Approval list include:
Hide pending approvals once I complete my portion of the approval - if there are multiple approvers, check this option to hide those approvals that you have completed (either approved, denied or skipped), even though there are other approvers from which action is still required. Leave it unchecked to see the approvals that you've completed but other approvers haven't yet completed their portion (in that case, the approval is listed, but you won't have any Approve/Deny capability because your portion is completed).
Show open, completed approval requests for # days after approval is complete - There are two separate life cycle states for an approval. Open/Closed and Pending/Approved/Denied. An approval can be approved or denied but still be open because the originator hasn't yet closed it. If checked, this option shows open approvals that have been approved or denied (i.e. completed) if their date falls within the number of days set.
Show closed, completed approval requests for days after approval is complete - This is the same as above except it shows the approvals that were formally closed.
Show open, incomplete approvals regardless of status that still require my action - If there are multiple approvers and one of the approvers denies the request, the entire approval gets set automatically to be denied even if the other approvers have approved it or it is still pending for them. Check this option to see those types of requests, where they were denied by someone else even though you haven't reviewed the approval.
Show open, approval requests that are denied - these show all open requests that have a status of denied. No matter whether you denied it or someone else did.
The rest of the option designate whether or not you want that detail to appear on the component list.
Expense Reports is a list of expense reports which are pending action. These will include reports you have submitted and those which need approval by you (if you are an approver).
