Dashboard

Introduction

The LYNKS Dashboard shows an overview over the whole system including all payments, accounts, and displays the cashflow evolution in form of widgets.
The dashboard is designed to be most effective on the different user types.
Top management can see and manage cash and accounts over a short period of time and gat a clear view on balances per currency to know if some financial actions or decisions need to be taken as swap or investments. Also, the overview can evaluate if sufficient funds are available to cover expected outgoing transactions.
Accountants get a quick overview of the daily payments’ activities and can manage cash and accounts over a short period of time while evaluating the available funds.

Widgets

All the information on the dashboard is in the default currency of the application. The symbol (≈) behind the currency is the indicator, that an exchange rate to EUR has been applied. The source of the rates is fetched daily and is coming from ECB.
The Dashboard Section of LYNKS offers a comprehensive overview for end users, allowing them to conveniently access and review the following information in some sections.

Current financial situation

First there are 4 dedicated widgets to keep the current financial situation in sight (exchange rate applied).
