When you login to the Safe Food Pro administrator console the default page that you see is the Dashboard. You can view the Dashboard in your desktop or tablet Web Browser and use it to monitor activity in your business - even if you are not on the premises.
As your staff use the Safe Food Pro tablet mobile application to enter information and complete daily, weekly and monthly tasks that information is collated and stored (in encrypted format) in the Safe Food Pro database. The Dashboard provides an overview of completed tasks and forms for a selected period. The default period is the last 7 days, but you can change to "THIS MONTH" or "THIS WEEK" or "CUSTOM".
Custom Date Range
You can use a custom date range to monitor progress over a selected period of time. When you click "CUSTOM" you can enter both a start and end date using the calendars. The graphs and data on the dashboard will alter depending on your range. This feature is not available when you are trialling Safe Food Pro.
As you can see below the Dashboard has several main areas.
Note: That if you are using a smaller screen (perhaps on a laptop) then the Activity Stream will appear underneath the charts
- Buckets: The numbers/counts along the top of the Dashboard show a summary of completed activities in the selected period. In this example Bagel Barn has 1 new staff member, induction, delivery and staff sickness this week. If you didn't want these particular buckets to be displayed you can customise them to suit the 'form type' you want to monitor. For more information on changing bucket labels click here!
- Verification Bucket: You'll notice there is a "Days to Verification" bucket. If you go to "My Business", then scroll down until you see "Next Verification Date" and fill in your verification date, it will then prompt you to your next verification here on the dashboard.

- Activity Stream: shows when your staff start (orange dot) and complete forms (tick) using the mobile application. You can refresh the dashboard and this activity stream by clicking on the refresh button to the right of the date selector. If you click on an activity then the corresponding form is displayed. Activities that have a blue note may need attention - you can hover a mouse over a blue note or open the activity to read the note. You can also filter the activity list using the slider at the top of the list so that only activities that have notes are visible.
- Completion Rate: Below the counts is a row of gauges showing progress in completing the daily forms required to gather the information for your Food Control Plan. Ideally every day (that your business is open) should show 100% by the end of the day. If you find that you don't really require one of the daily forms then you can adjust their schedule in the Forms area of the Safe Food Pro administration console.
- Graphs/Charts: The Dashboard contains a few key charts - making it easier to spot anything that needs attention such as a temperature reading that is too high, an overdue maintenance check or an expired suppliers certificate.
- Form Completion: Graphs displayed at the bottom show the ratio of forms completed by type and by staff member.
