The Active and Forthcoming Chart is designed to visualize (Bar or Line format) the users in the route, their sequence order, and the items moving in the route. At first look, the Active-Forthcoming chart does not show too many differences from the Aged Items chart; however, there are some subtle variances in the way the data is displayed and what the data means in this format. The Paging toolbar is no longer available since there is not a need to control paging navigation in this chart. Most of the features on the left-hand corner of the chart are still in place and available, including the tabs and the download button.
The Active-Forthcoming Chart uses tabs to display the data in two different formats, a combination of a bar and line charts. The Bars in the graph take the color green to denote the active items sitting on the user’s sequence in the route. The blue line in the graph signifies the awaiting item to arrive at the next sequence in the route.
The way in which an item can move to the next position in the sequence is by queuing for approval. The approval process is done on the window grid by clicking the button next to the back button or by selecting the image and clicking the approval button on the PDF window. At that point, the document leaves the current position and moves to the next user in line.
On the right side of the graph area, the user can find the labels for active and forthcoming. Clicking the labels will temporarily clear or add those components to the chart.
In the top left-hand corner of the window, it shows the route’s profile name and the tabs above the download button. The right tab illustrates the data in a column chart where green columns are for active items and blue columns for forthcoming items.
