The aim of training is to see results, whether it be related to outcome, performance or process goals. For coaches, the Performance Monitoring Dashboard provides yet another view of player information so they can see the outcomes of their training. It is capable of displaying the results for any test and any combination of test results according to the coach's needs. It also has the functionality to show how the latest test result has changed in comparison with past results.
As with the Overview and Availability Dashboard players can be filtered according to their group or competition, with any number of groups viewed at one time. The Performance Monitoring Dashboard is accessed by selecting 'Dashboard' from the left-hand menu and 'Performance Monitoring' in the far left drop-down menu to the upper left-hand side of the screen.
The Player Summary is capable of displaying test results or wellness scores for each individual player. It can be configured to display squads as per the Overview and Availability Dashboards.

How the System Calculates Weekly Averages:
When calculating averages from "this week", the system will take the value from the day you are currently in and the values up to and including the Monday just gone. For example if it's Friday the 24th, the system will take information from Monday the 20th (Monday just gone) to Friday the 24th (today) inclusive.
When calculating averages for the "previous week" the system will take values from the the Sunday just gone and the Monday previous. For example if it's Friday the 24th, the system will take information from Sunday the 19th (Sunday just gone) to Monday the 13th inclusive.
Team widgets provide a visual snapshot of your chosen elements, as they do in the Availability Dashboard. The widgets that are created in the Availability Dashboard are not visible in the Performance Monitoring Dashboard and vice versa. If the same widget is required, they need to be configured in both Dashboards. Refer to the 'Team Widgets' section of the Availability Dashboard guide for information on how to configure team widgets.
