Collins Dashboard - Overview

The Collins Dashboard is your landing screen when logging on to Collins for the day. It is there to give you a snapshot of whats happening in your venue(s) on todays date. Here is what each section is all about. 

Your Enquiries
These results have been extracted from your Notification centre, which is located in your Enquiries page. They will show you how many follow ups you have set for today, how many in progress enquiries you have and how many new messages are waiting for you (if you're a Collins Mail client). It will also give you a quick overview of enquiries that need to be actioned; Untaken enquiries, new enquiries that are older than 2 hours and any enquiries for todays date. 

If a colleague or team member has mentioned you in internal chat within a booking, this is where you will be notified of this. See here for full details on internal chat within Collins.

Notes about today 
Has a member of your team made a note about today's date in the Floorplan or Diary? They will appear in the centre of your Dashboard too 

Today's Bookings
Taken from your Monthly and Weekly Overview sections, this allows you to quickly see what your Morning, Afternoon and Evening are looking like, as well as seeing how many covers are coming in for each of your booking types.

Close Bookings
This enables you to quickly close off bookings for today's date without having to go into your settings. If you need to re-open them shortly after, you can do so in the same section.
