When you log in to Drive as a game author, you land on the main dashboard for your Drive game. This dashboard is your launching point for anywhere else you want to go within the authoring tool. It is also a source of summary information about your game and its players. Let’s look at how this dashboard is organized.
The “hamburger” icon in the top left corner lets you expand and collapse the sidebar menu located on the left side of your screen. Your Drive game’s name is located next to this menu icon. Once you expand the navigation, you will see options that help you:
- Develop your game
- Customize your game
- Manage players
- Access reports
- Implement your game
- Access Knowledge Base resources
Each of these menu options can also be expanded to reveal sub-menu choices within each main area of the authoring tool.
The top of your dashboard gives you a quick snapshot of your players and how they are doing. As the image shows, four icons are always visible. These icons let you see how many players you have, how many are active, how many have reached mastery, and the average mastery value.
If your game has not yet launched, a Knowledge Guru Drive Creation Checklist to Launch will be displayed. This checklist outlines the six steps you need to execute to get your game created. Clicking any of the six steps provides you with a detailed explanation of each one.
As you complete tasks, the checklist automatically marks the tasks off your list and changes the box from red to green. By clicking within a step, you can see a more detailed explanation of it.
Post-Launch Statistics and Recent Activity Log
Once you make your Drive game live, your pre-launch checklist gets replaced with additional player statistics. These statistics are dynamic. You can click within them to access full reports. You can also hover over the bars in the graph or the pie pieces in the pie chart to see specific data points.
The bottom left portion of your screen will change to a timeline labeled KG Recent Activity. This activity log can help you see how long it took to create and put your game online as well as the most recent activities of the game’s players.
Your Profile and Logging Out
The drop-down menu at the far-most upper right corner of your screen contains links to your profile settings as well as a log out option. Your profile shows the date your Knowledge Guru subscription expires and allows you to change your email and password.
Knowledge Base Help and Support
The Knowledge Guru Knowledge Base is always available to you via Access Resources in your navigation pane. This menu option contains a link to the Drive Knowledge Base as well as to Support.
