When you first log in to Paligo, the Dashboard is shown. It provides you with an overview of your Paligo instance and the assignments you need to work on. The Dashboard contains several panels described below.
If you have navigated away from the Dashboard, you return to it by selecting the Dashboard tab in the top menu.
The Activity Feed panel shows a history of recent events that have occurred on your Paligo instance. These include activities such as users logging in, creating topics, editing topics and deleting topics.
By default, the Activity Feed shows the five most recent events. To see more, select the down arrow icon at the bottom of the Activity Feed panel.
The dashboard has an activity feed where you can see a record of recent events in your Paligo instance. By default, the activity feed shows all traceable events, the time of each event, and the users that were involved. But you can filter the activity feed so that it only shows events that are of interest to you.
All boxes are cleared by default and this has the same effect as all boxes being checked - no filters are applied. But when you have a mix of cleared and checked boxes, the cleared events are not shown in the activity feed, the checked events are shown.
Select the Dashboard tab in the top menu.
Select the filter icon in the Activity Feed section.
Check the boxes for the users you want to include in your activity feed.
Clear the boxes for the users to be excluded from your activity feed.
Check the boxes for the Events you want to include in your activity feed.
Clear the boxes for the events to be excluded from your activity feed.
You can share a document, such as a topic or publication, with other users so that they can make a contribution. The Shared Documents panel has two tabs: With You and By You.
The With you tab shows you who has shared a document with you, and provides a link to the document. You can also send a reply to the user who shared the document.
The By you tab shows the documents you have shared with other users. You have the option to cancel the share (Unshare) or to edit the share. When you edit the share, you can change the timescale, add a different message, etc.
For more information on sharing documents, see Share Content (without assignments).
In Paligo, you can create assignments for Reviews, Contributions, Translations and Translation reviews. Each assignment is a request to work on content and usually has a timescale and a message explaining what needs to be done. When an assignment is created an email notification is sent to the assignee. Once the assignee finishes the assignment, by using the Assignment button, an email notification is sent to the author.
The Assignments panel to the right of Dashboard shows your assignments and the assignments that you have invited others to work on. You can follow the progress both from the Assignment Panel and the Planner, see Track the Assignment Progress.
If you are an author, the assignments are sorted under the tabs: For You, By You or Done , depending on whether it is allocated to you, created by you or has been completed by the assignees.
The assignment link is sent to the assignee as an email notification and is also available in the Assignment Panel. If there is a need to copy an assignment link, you can right-click the assignment and choose Copy Link Address.
A symbol shows the progress for each assignment:
The user has not approved or rejected the assignment content
The user has approved the assignment content
Red Minus symbol
The user has rejected the assignment content as it needs more work before it is suitable for publishing.
To find out more about assignments, see Collaborate.
Paligo has a built-in checking in and out system. When you edit a topic, it is checked out automatically, so that other users cannot edit it at the same time. The Checked Out Documents panel gives you a list of documents that are currently checked out.
You can use the Checked Out documents panel to view only the documents you have checked out yourself (My documents) or All documents by all users. You can check in your own documents on an individual basis, or you can select the checkboxes and then use the Check-in button to check in all selected documents at once.
To find out more about checking in and checking out documents, see Check-in and Check-out.
The Statistics panel on the Dashboard provides an overview of your Paligo instance. It shows the total storage usage, with storage broken down into segments for database, images, files and free (available space).
On the Professional plan and higher, you can select More statistics to display the Statistics page.
It gives you valuable information about your progress:
How many topics and images you have.
How many are orphaned (not used anywhere). Making it easy to clean up your repository.
How much reuse you have, and which topics are the most reused / reusable.
How many languages are used.
How many words are used.
Topic reuse and image reuse shows the ratio between the number of unique topics / images you have that are actually used anywhere compared to the number of times these are reused.
Note that while for topic and image reuse, the higher the number the better the reuse. But for text fragments, even a relatively modest percentage can be an indicator of good reuse due to the large number of text fragments any database will have.
You can also display the Statistics page by selecting the Statistics icon in the top-right corner of the Dashboard, below the Search field.
