Creating Templates Associated to Roles

To create a template for individual Roles you first need to understand which Pages are potentially available for the user to access, and their associated features and functions:


The following pages are available:

  • About – Displays the about screen for the application, information such as application version, etc.
  • Admin Reports – The 3 standard administrator reports installed by default are the following:
    • User Result Detail – User assessment results, with ability to drill down to question level and the option to export the data.
    • User Feedback Response Percentages – User feedback response results, reported as the percentage of users who selected specific responses.
    • Question Response Summary – Overall summary, by assessment, at question or criteria level, or percentage of users who selected specific answers or ratings
  • Branding – Application branding settings, including color scheme, font size and logo.
  • User Field Mapping – Control which user fields can be used for filtering DNA data.
  • Feedback Deployment Model – Feedback model management – control who can access a user’s feedback assessment, for example, Self & Manager, Self, Manager & Peers etc. A feedback assessment is created using one of the feedback models once it has been assigned to a user and it will automatically assign the assessment to the next user in the model such as manager or peer.
  • Feedback Results Report – Individuals or combination, (for example manager and individual/self) ratings by specific/selected criteria.
  • Import Users – Import user details and Hierarchy.
  • Manage KPI Data –Manage KPI data to be used within DNA and SkillsAnalysis.

  • Licensing – Performance DNA license information, including the number of licenses and expiry date.
  • Assessments – Create, modify, import, export and assign assessments.
  • Certificates – Create certificates to associate with assessments.

  • Roles and Widgets – Define permissions and system feature/function access for users.
  • System Settings – Create user fields and field mappings (including login field) for all users.
  • Users & Hierarchy – Organizational structure and user data. The hierarchy defines the structure within the organization - for example positions and associated users. The hierarchy defines reporting visibility - for example, it defines which users User X can see in a report.

Portal widgets may also be available if you have applied a Portal license.

Once you have identified which pages are required to be accessed for which role, they can then be associated to that role.

To associate pages to a role, first select the role from the List of roles and then click the Widgets tab in the selection box (Widgets are the Page names).

Users can create their own tabs and associate the widgets, or create pre-defined templates by role (see next section).

It is possible to set the default page for individual roles by selecting a role and then choosing one of the available widgets for the role from the Default widget for role section located at the bottom of the Roles & Widgets page. The default widget will be the page or feature that opens automatically when the user logs in to the system.
