  • Configuration of navigation structure
  • Configuration of data collection templates (structural and operational data)

  • Configuration of dashboards and charts

Can I manage several projects with Reframe?

Depending on your licence, separate workspaces can be configured. This allows for the collection and analysis of data across different portfolios and projects in one software instance.

Although the data is stored and managed in different workspaces, Reframe allows for synchronising data between workspaces. This set-up is helpful, for example, if data is stored and managed on a country level but needs to be aggregated on a global level.

How can access to data be managed?

Reframe includes a role-based permission scheme. This means that users get access to different sections of the system based on their roles. For each role, certain permissions can be granted per section to view, edit and/or create data entries. The user accounts and permissions can be managed via a user interface in the system.

Permissions can even be connected to dynamic elements, e.g. countries, provinces, schools, action areas or projects.
