Plugin Version: 2.0.40 | Release Notes | Old Versions


Introduction

ProcessMaker’s Advanced Dashboards give organizations the ability to monitor large amounts of data about their processes. Whether it’s measuring the productivity of departments by process, or identifying bottlenecks in processes, the advanced dashboards provide both simple information at a glance and detailed information in a drill-down feature. It allows regular users to check the state of the processes, cases, tasks, users and tables in interactive statistics and graphics in 4 user-friendly dashlets.

These four dashlets are intuitive and easy to use. Its interactivity offers users an easy way to access information about a process, such as the number of cases, their status, etc.

  • Popup Information: To view the number of cases in each section of the graph, pass the mouse over the section to view a popup message showing the name of the section and the number of corresponding cases.

 

  • Drill down to the next graph: Access the information by starting with the main category (Depending on the sequence defined) and move through the hierarchy until reaching the last level.
For example, in the sequence Status/Process/Task, clicking in Draft status shows the number of cases for each process. Then clicking on the Claim request process, shows the number of tasks which has cases in draft status:
Country
Name of the State
Name of the Region
The label below the graph, lists the custom label entered in the configuration, followed by the names for each graph in the sequence. To navigate to the first graph in the sequence, click on the beginning of the label:
Click on a section in the last graph in the sequence will open a list of cases which correspond to that section:

The case list displays the following information:

  • #(Number): The case number.
  • Status: The status of the case.
  • Case:.- The case title. If a custom case title isn't set in the task properties, then this is "#", followed by the case number.
  • Process: The name of the process.
  • Task: The name of the task.
  • Sent by: The user who worked on the previous task, before it was routed to the current task.
  • Current User: The current user assigned to the case.

Cases Drill Down By Category

This dashlet shows information about cases depending on the category, which can be: Process, Users, Groups, Departments and cases which are Overdue vs. On Scheduled.

Creating the dashlet

To create a Cases Drill Down By Category dashlet, go to ADMIN > Settings > Dashboards and click on the New button above the list of Dashlet Instances. In the form to define the dashlet, select Cases Drill Down By Category option in the Dashlet dropdown box.

Then fill in the following fields for a Cases Drill Down By Category dashlet:

  • Cases Status Group By: Available Version: 2.0.9. Select which group of statuses is used when grouping cases according to their status:
    • On Time, At Risk, Overdue: This option groups cases found in the Inbox, according to their due date. Note that it only includes cases with TO_DO status, so cases with DRAFT, PAUSED, CANCELLED, DELETED and COMPLETED status are not included.

After creating the new dashlet, go to the DASHBOARDS menu and look for the new Cases Drill Down By Category dashlet.

A Cases Drill Down By Category dashlet can be viewed in the same way as a Cases Drill Down dashlet.

Custom Drill Down

A Custom Drill Down dashlet is used to create a series of custom database queries, which are concatenated. This means that each query depends upon the results of the previous query. These queries can be based upon Report Tables (which hold case data), PM Tables (which are custom tables created in ProcessMaker) or data from an external database connection.

Creating a Custom Drill Down dashlet

To create a Custom Drill Down dashlet, go to the ADMIN > Settings > Dashboards and click on the New button above the Dashlet Instances list. In the form to define the new dashlet, select the Custom Drill Down option in the Dashlet dropdown box.

 

Fill in the general configuration fields and the following fields for a Custom Drill Down dashlet:

  • Query: Enter a series of two or more SELECT statements which query the selected database and create a drill-down chart in the dashlet. The first query will generate the first chart, the second chart will generate the second chart, etc.
If Using the last query to generate the list is set to Yes, then the last query will be used to display a table, where the names of the fields are the column headers. To display different column headers, use AS to rename the fields.
The queries should be concatenated, so that the second query depends on what was returned by the first query, and the third query depends on the second, etc. For example, if the first query returns a field named CODE, then concatenate the second query to the first by using @@CODE or @%CODE in the WHERE clause of the second query. @@CODE will enclose the value in double quotes and should be used with values that are strings (including dates and datetimes). @%CODE will not enclose the value in quotes and should be used for numeric values.
Each query must be separated by a semicolon (;) and the database name should not be included in the SELECT statements. The first field returned by the SELECT statement will be the labels displayed on the X axis of the chart. The second field will be the numeric value for the Y axis of the chart. The COUNT(*) function can be used to count the number of records returned by a query. Use GROUP BY if counting the number of occurrences found in a second table which is joined to a first table. Any fields after the second field returned by the SELECT statement will not be displayed on the chart, but they can be used as variables for concatenating with the next query.
First Query: Retrieves the data for the first chart.
Second Query: Retrieves the data for the second chart.
Additional queries: These are optional queries, which get data for the third chart, fourth chart, etc. If Using the last query to generate the list is set to Yes, then the last query will be used to display a table of data.
  • Using the last query to generate the list: Click on "yes" to use the last query to generate a list in the form of a table of data.
  • DB Connection to use for this query: Available Version: 2.0.40. Select the database connection which will be used for the query. If querying a PM Table or a Report Table stored in the wf_ databse for the current workspace, then select - WORKFLOW -. If querying a Report Table stored in the rp_ of the current workspace, select - REPORT -. To query a database for another workspace or an external database, use a Database Connection to that database.

Additional Information to display on Top Available Version: 2.0.40.

  • Label Information: Add a label to display additional information in the upper right-hand corner of the chart.
  • Query: Enter an SQL SELECT statement to obtain additional information, which is displayed after the label.

For example, to display the total number of countries stored in the database, its label is "Total" and its query is:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS QUANTITY FROM ISO_COUNTRY

The result will be:

Once created, Custom Drill Down dashlets are accessed and viewed in the same way as a Cases Drill Down dashlet.

Example with Custom Table

Let's create an example to better understand Custom Drill Down dashlets and how to use them. This example will show the number of requests made by country. Then, if a country is selected, it will show the regions which belong to that country. When a region is selected, it will show how many requests have been made by type. This information will be displayed as a final report in the Custom Drill Down dashlet.

Follow the steps below:

1. To get information about countries and regions, it is required to work with the ISO_COUNTRY and ISO_SUBDIVISION tables stored in the wf_ database.

2. Create a PM Table: To store information about users and their respective countries and regions create a table named PMT_REQUESTS with the following fields:

  • REQ_UID: Request ID.
  • REQ_FULLNAME: User full name
  • REQ_EMAIL: User email.
  • REQ_TYPE: Request information.
  • REQ_COMMENT: Request Comments.
  • REQ_DATE: Date of the Request
  • IC_UID: Code of the country, where the user resides.
  • IS_UID: Code of the region in the country, where the user resides.

Note: Information may be filled using a DynaForm, a trigger, manually, etc. depending the design of the process.

3. Fill in data in the PM Table. For example:

UID
FULLNAME
EMAIL
TYPE
COMMENT
DATE
IC_UID
IS_UID
1
John Smith
john@company.com
Credit Card Application
Due Date May 2nd
April 24th
CA (for Canada)
AB (for Alberta)

4. Create a Custom Drill Down dashlet with the following information:

5. Create the first query, whose result will be the label of the field. In this case, it will be the label of the country.

SELECT ISO_COUNTRY.IC_NAME, COUNT(*) AS QUANTITY, ISO_COUNTRY.IC_UID FROM PMT_REQUEST LEFT JOIN ISO_COUNTRY ON
(PMT_REQUEST.IC_UID = ISO_COUNTRY.IC_UID) GROUP BY PMT_REQUEST.IC_UID ORDER BY ISO_COUNTRY.IC_NAME;

6. Create the Second query, whose result will be the quantity (number of records), which are displayed for each bar in the graph:

SELECT ISO_SUBDIVISION.IS_NAME, COUNT(*) AS QUANTITY, ISO_SUBDIVISION.IS_UID FROM PMT_REQUEST LEFT JOIN ISO_SUBDIVISION ON
(PMT_REQUEST.IS_UID = ISO_SUBDIVISION.IS_UID) WHERE ISO_SUBDIVISION.IC_UID=@@IC_UID GROUP BY PMT_REQUEST.IS_UID ORDER BY ISO_SUBDIVISION.IS_NAME;

7. Create the Third query, whose result will be the regions for the respective countries selected.

SELECT PMT_REQUEST.REQ_TYPE, COUNT(*) AS QUANTITY, PMT_REQUEST.IS_UID FROM PMT_REQUEST WHERE PMT_REQUEST.IS_UID=@@IS_UID
GROUP BY PMT_REQUEST.REQ_TYPE ORDER BY PMT_REQUEST.REQ_TYPE;

8. Create Fourth query which result will be the fullname, email and date of the user request. It's worth mentioning that this information is optional since this result will be displayed as a list after the last graph in the sequence.

SELECT REQ_FULLNAME, REQ_EMAIL, REQ_DATE FROM PMT_REQUEST WHERE IS_UID=@@IS_UID;

9. Select Yes to use the last query to generate the list.

Once this query is created click on Save to create the new Custom Drill Down dashlet. Then, go to DASHBOARD and look for the Number of Requests dashlet:

As shown in the image above, the X axis of the graph lists the 3 countries (Australia, Canada and Germany) where requests were made. The Y axis shows the number of requests made for each country. To obtain more detailed information, click on a country, such as Australia. In this example, 3 regions inside Australia will be displayed where requests were made:

It is possible to see the total for each bar in a graph, by hovering the mouse over it so a popup window will appear with the total. For example, hovering the mouse over Alberta shows that it had 1 request:

Finally, a detailed list can be obtained by clicking on a bar in the last graph. In this case, to see the list of requests from Alberta, click on the bar for Alberta:

Example with Groups and Cases List

This example explains how to create a Custom Drill Down dashlet which queries the workflow database for information about groups and the cases assigned to members of groups. The first chart shows the groups and the number of members in each group. Clicking on specific group then shows the names of the users in the group and the number of active cases assigned to each member. Clicking on a user's name, then opens a list of cases assigned to that user. Clicking on the case's number will open the case in a new window/tab (depending on the configuration of the web browser).

First, go to ADMIN > Setup > Dashboards and create a new Custom Drill Down dashlet:

The first query looks up the names of the groups, which are defined in the CONTENT table where the CON_CATEGORY field is set to 'GRP_TITLE'. It uses the COUNT(*) function and the GROUP BY GRP_UID clause so it can count the number of members in each group.

SELECT C.CON_VALUE AS GROUP_NAME, COUNT(*) AS NUM_MEMBERS, C.CON_ID AS GROUP_ID  
FROM CONTENT C, GROUP_USER GU
WHERE GU.GRP_UID=C.CON_ID AND C.CON_CATEGORY='GRP_TITLE'
GROUP BY GU.GRP_UID ORDER BY GROUP_NAME;

The second query looks up the number of cases assigned to each member of the group selected by the drill down. An inner SELECT statement is used to lookup the IDs of the members of a group in the GROUP_USERS table. The @@GROUP_ID is passed as a variable from the first query to be used in the inner SELECT. For each group, the second query looks up the active cases assigned to the members of the group in the APP_CACHE_VIEW table. Only cases which are still open and have 'TO_DO' or 'DRAFT' status are selected. Information about cases is stored in a number of tables in the wf_ database, such as APPLICATION, CONTENT, APP_DELEGATION, APP_THREAD, etc., but ProcessMaker caches case information in the APP_CACHE_VIEW table for fast lookup.

SELECT APP_CURRENT_USER, COUNT(*) AS NUM_CASES, USR_UID  
FROM APP_CACHE_VIEW ACV
WHERE DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN' AND (APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR APP_STATUS='DRAFT') AND
ACV.USR_UID IN (SELECT GU.USR_UID FROM GROUP_USER GU WHERE GU.GRP_UID=@@GROUP_ID)
GROUP BY USR_UID ORDER BY APP_CURRENT_USER;

The third query obtains a list of cases assigned to a particular user who was selected by the drill down. The first field returned by the query uses the concat() function to construct a link CASE-URL>CASE-NUMBER to open the case. The other fields show the Process name, the current task name, when the case was started, when it was last updated, when the current task is due and the status of the case, which can be TO_DO or DRAFT.

SELECT concat('<a href=http://www.example.com/sysworkflow/en/plugins/advancedDashboards/dashletCasesDrillDownCaseOpen?APP_UID=',
APP_UID, '&DEL_INDEX=', DEL_INDEX, IF(@@USER_LOGGED=USR_UID, '&action=draft', '&action=view'), ' target=_blank>', APP_TITLE, '</a>')
AS Case_Link, APP_PRO_TITLE AS Process, APP_TAS_TITLE AS Task, APP_CREATE_DATE AS Created, APP_UPDATE_DATE AS Last_Update,
DEL_TASK_DUE_DATE AS Due_Date, APP_STATUS AS STATUS
FROM APP_CACHE_VIEW
WHERE USR_UID=@@USR_UID AND DEL_THREAD_STATUS='OPEN' AND (APP_STATUS='TO_DO' OR APP_STATUS='DRAFT')
ORDER BY Due_Date;

Note that the link has target=_blank so that it will open cases in a new tab/window if clicked. To open in the same window, use target=_top. If the current logged-in user is assigned to the case, then the case is opened for editing, otherwise it is opened for viewing. If the user doesn't have rights to open the case, only the case summary is shown.

Once saved, the new dashlet can be viewed under the DASHBOARDS menu, where the first chart shows the number of members in each group

Clicking on the Management group, shows the number of cases assigned to the two members of the group:

Clicking on a particular user, shows a list of cases assigned to that user:

Clicking on the case number will open that case in a new tab/window.
