Home > Business Snapshot is a widget that provides associates with a quick view of their most important statistics. These statistics, referred to as Metrics, are representations of certain data points in the system.
You can reference information available on the associate pertaining to their personal information, rank, volume, tree, etc. Once configured, each data point statistic displays as a tile in the widget.

Viewing Data Descriptions
Selecting a tile flips and expands a card that contains a description of the data, as shown in the following images:
There are two Business Snapshot widgets:
- Home > Business Snapshot (current month only) - Deprecated. Shows the current month’s data only. Contains no tabs.
- Home > Tabbed Business Snapshot (DISCO 10 ONLY) - Current version. Shows the data under tabs that can be customized or removed; you can add additional tabs as well. By default there are CURRENT and PREVIOUS tabs.
Configuring the Widget
Admin: Web Office Admin,
Page: Web Office Configuration > Business Snapshot
Permission: Business Snapshot
Adding Tabs to the Widget
You can organize the Metric tiles under tabs. These tabs can represent anything you want; but, typically, you’ll want one each for current and previous commission periods.
In the Business Snapshot page, click TABS
Click + ADD TAB to open the Add Tab pop-up window.
Enter a Name for the tab.
Note: This new tab will now be available for selection when new metrics are being added, but won’t display in the Business Snapshot widget until it has a metric under it.
Adding Metrics to a Tile
Make sure the METRICS tab is selected. Then, click the + ADD METRIC button to open the Add Data Point pop-up window.
In the pop-up, click the Data Point dropdown, and select the data point you want to display in the widget.
Note: If the chosen data point has a period constraint, then the Time Frame fields will reveal.
Optionally, click the Tab dropdown to select the tab under which the metric will appear in the widget.
Note: This option will only display if there are multiple tabs available.
If the Time Frame fields are visible, then click the EDIT button to select either Months or Weeks in the Time frame in dropdown.
Next, select either Current, Last, or ___ months/weeks ago.
Enter the Display Name that will appear under the data in the widget tile.
Enter a description of the metric’s purpose in the Description TinyMCE Text Editor.
Selecting Display Types
Click the Display Type dropdown, and select in what format the data will display.
Display Types define how the Metric will appear in the Web Office widget tile.
If you, for example, chose the Commission Active data point (which is either active or inactive), and then selected a Number (0 decimals) display type, then the tile will display either a 1 or 0 (the numerical representation of true/false). Boolean would be a more appropriate choice.
If an inappropriate display type is chosen, then the tile will just display the data point’s value. For most data points, this will appear just fine in the tile. If you don’t like how a data point displays, then try a different display types until one works for you.
Boolean - True or false. If the associate meets the criteria, then a check mark will display in the widget tile. If not, then an X displays.
Date - If a date data point was selected, then using this type will display the date format setup in your system.
Number (0 decimals) - Displays numerical data with no decimals (0).
Number (1 decimal) - Displays numerical data with one decimal point (0.0).
Number (2 decimals) - Displays numerical data with two decimal points (0.00).
Custom - For more information, see: Custom String Format.
Value to text… - This type allows you to replace what the data point displays by default with your own text value. This works best with ranks or statuses. For example, with ranks, the system will display a 1, 2, 3, etc. In the Metrics Value field, you can enter the value the system sends and then, in the Display Values field, you can enter what you want to display in the tile.
For example: Commission Active displays either 1 or 0 by default. You can change each to Yes or No or any other Display Value that you want.
Saving the Configuration
Click the Published toggle on to publish the metric now after you save the configuration.
Alternatively, you can publish the metric from the Metrics List by clicking the Publish icon.
The rest of the settings are Multi-Faceted Configuration (MFC). Enter your specific configurations on who can view the metric.
When finished, click SAVE.
The metric will display as a tile under its tab in the Business Snapshot widget in the Web Office.
