In light of the current landscape, we strongly recommend your attendance at tomorrow’s Virtual WEX webinar, details to access the event can be found below. 

Dashboard Previous Years Placement Creation Tracker

What have our developers been up to? 

We are pleased to share with you the new functionality which enables more detailed information to the placement creation timeline graph located in the dashboard. The purpose of the chart is to clearly outline progress against previous academic years. We believe that this chart will act as a clear indicator of the impact COVID-19 has had on your work-based learning programmes.

This allows you to:

  • Display more data about the placement creation timeline.
  • Add additional data points to move from monthly to weekly information.
  • Update the graph to show calendar years. January on the left and December to the right. The current year will show as a dark line. All previous years for which data is available will show as lighter lines. Each year will show in the key and will highlight on hover of the key and display values upon hover of the line and points (screenshot below).
Note we will update the chart to start at the beginning of the academic year (1st September to 31st August)
