Introducing Insights Dashboard and Homepage Redesign


There’s a goldmine of data locked inside every HRIS, but only 12 percent of companies feel they’ve cracked the code. Meanwhile, HR professionals who use HR analytics are 10 times more likely to provide those powerful insights to executives and decision makers. That’s why BambooHR is on a mission to make the complicated task of HR data mining as easy as possible. Introducing a new Insights Dashboard and redesign of the BambooHR account Home!

Here’s how these new updates give our customers better visibility into their data, support better decision-making, and create a more valuable, flexible experience for every BambooHR user.

Account Home Page Redesign

The New Home Page

What’s Changed?

We’ve made the Home page more efficient and flexible for every user, but especially for those in HR and leadership who regularly seek out and ask for data.

On the left-hand side of the page, you’ll see we’ve kept your Goals, Training, and Benefits links handy under the Time Off widget. Next to Time Off, the What’s Happening at… widget is fixed at the top of the page, keeping important company-wide news and announcements at eye level. Immediately below this is your new Insights Dashboard.

Insights Dashboard

What’s New?

We want you to have better visibility into your data, so you can make better, data-driven decisions for your business. The Insights Dashboard makes it easier than ever to retrieve and interpret the data you need, when you need it.

In the top right corner of your new Home page, you’ll find an Edit option. Here’s where your new customizable dashboard gets really fun!

Each user starts out with the Celebrations, Who’s Out, and Company Links widgets, but clicking Edit will let you add available Insights widgets from the library, remove them from your dashboard, and rearrange them exactly how you want them.

How Many Insights Widgets Are There?

We’ve launched the Insights Dashboard with 16 premade widgets in five targeted categories:

How Do the Widgets Work?

Each widget automatically displays high-level graphs and data, but when selected, the widget expands to give you a deeper look into the numbers in question. Apply filters to zoom in even further and pull out useful insights the moment you need them.

Who Has Access to Which Widgets?

Each user will only see widgets that are pertinent to their role, based on the Access Level assigned to them and the teams they belong to. For example, if the Marketing manager selects the People Without a Pay Raise widget, they’ll only be able to see who hasn’t had a recent pay raise on their own team.

When an employee adds all available Insight widgets, they’ll see this message prompting them to provide feedback on any other types of widgets they’d like to see.
