DNA is where key business data, for example, quality monitoring, sales and revenue, customer satisfaction etc., has been used in creating a job role profile and the data is weighted in order of importance to the business.

This allows visibility of where there is a potential training requirement or where performance has exceeded expectation.

There may also be the opportunity for self-learning by assigning learning items to enhance performance based on the results achieved. As a manager you will have visibility of these performance results for your team and be able to assign learning items if required to individual team members.


The My DNA page allows users to view their current scores for all assigned Strands. The data visualization supports drill-down.

Date Range

Data Visualization

The performance data is displayed as a series of partition charts with the user’s assigned Strands at the top level.

Clicking on the different parts of the Strands will zoom to that node and allow deeper structures to be explored. The colors used are taken from the defined Thresholds.

The values shown are the raw scores for the current user aggregated over the selected date window.

Data Issues

Should there be any issues with the date returned these will be shown in expandable summaries above each Strand.

View Filtered DNA

The View Filtered DNA page shows user performance for Strands and User Demographics where users fall into each threshold band. Initially it shows a chart for each User Demographic, then for each strand selected. The chart(s) display the percentages of users within each threshold band.

Date Range

The data is filtered by a start and end date which can be selected using fixed dates or calculated as rolling dates. Use the button in the top right corner to toggle between the selections. Rolling dates are calculated from the previous day minus the values selected in the dropdowns.

Any selected values will be displayed at the top followed by the top 20 unselected values. The unselected values can be filtered using the textbox at the top of each result set. Additional data will only be retrieved from the server after 3 or more characters have been inputted into the filter textbox.

Filters can be saved and set as a default for future use. A default filter will be automatically loaded when the page loads and only one filter can be set as a default per page. The loading and saving dialogs can accessed by selecting the LOAD and SAVE buttons.
