    The primary differences between dashboards in Prodio.

    The manager’s dashboard – essential functions

    You can manage production orders on the manager’s panel, set a production schedule, and drag and drop to prioritise tasks. What’s more, you can create a database of your products, so the know-how and product knowledge stay inside the company, not only in the heads of critical employees. Information about your products (including photographs, drawings, attachments) will become apparent, easy to understand, complete and always at hand. Each change made on the manager’s dashboard is visible in real-time on the production dashboard. 

    With just a few clicks, you can create a production plan displayed via a web browser at the production hall in an easily accessible form from any place in the world.

    Your employees can see all assigned tasks and responsibilities, together with your comments and product characteristics. They know who should do each job, what exactly is supposed to be done, and what time. When employees come to work, they register their presence through a production planning panel using cards / RFID-based vital fobs. Also, they register the start / the end of the performed operation, indicate the current state, and add additional comments. Everything is in your account in just a few seconds so that you can see all changes on the manager’s dashboard.

    If you wish to share important news with your staff, you can add this information to tasks or use announcements. Your comments will be visible straight away on the production dashboard. 

    Production dashboard – essential functions? 

    On the production dashboard, you can clock in / clock out at work.

    You can also pick the task assigned to you to start work on the production order.

    At the same time, you can see who is working and what they are doing on the manager’s dashboard. Additionally, you know who checked in to work and picked the assigned task, thanks to the right-side timeline.

    On the production dashboard, it is possible to pick the task and complete work by giving the number of ready-made items (including the number of faulty ones, with the reason for their defect). You can also check out once you finish work for the day. Simultaneously in the manager’s dashboard, you can see all completed and ready tasks and check out from work. 

    It is not possible to make changes or drag and drop orders on the production dashboard. You can only do the tasks assigned to you by the manager. 

    Both dashboards are synchronised via the Internet, so all you need is an inexpensive, second-hand computer and online connection on your shop floor. 

    How to log into the production dashboard

    It is straightforward to log into the production dashboard – enter it in your browser. 


    There you will see both panels. The production dashboard is on the right. You received the login and password in the email we sent straight after setting up your Prodio’s account. If you have any trouble finding it, there are also in the application. Go to Settings on the left side, then click Production dashboard. There you will see your password and log in.
