It may be useful for you to view your dashboard with the same start day as your schedule and timecards! You can also turn certain widgets on/off so you only view what's important to you. To do this:
- Go to Company Settings
- Go to Dashboard Options
- Select the day you want from the dropdown
- Turn the widgets you want to see ON
- Keep the ones you don't want to see OFF
Your dashboard metrics will now display from the start day you have chosen and the widgets you want on your dashboard will be visible.
