The Hiring Manager dashboard and the ability to revert to Legacy Reporting referenced in this article are part of the Summer 2022 Product Release, scheduled for progressive rollout starting in August 2022. For more information on the Summer 2022 release, keep an eye on our Product Release Notes.

In August 2022, Lever released a product update making Visual Insights the default in-app analytics interface. The updated interface is accessed via the Visual Insights tab in the platform header (previously labelled 'Reports').

This article is designed to help those that are most familiar with the legacy reporting interface transition to the updated Visual Insights view. Note that every data point retrievable in the legacy reporting interface is retrievable in the updated Visual Insights view. Readers of this article will be able to compare the default reporting interface and the Visual Insights interface by location as well as by metric.

The updated Visual Insights interface offers usability advantages that make it easier to discover actionable measurements in your recruitment data. Visual Insights also contains new dashboards and the ability to report on metrics not available in the legacy reporting interface. For a full breakdown of these advantages and additions, refer to our Visual Insights help article collection.

 

User access to Visual Insights is beyond parity with the legacy interface, as outlined in our User Access help article. Super Admins can view all dashboards. Admins can view all dashboards with the exception of Offers, Diversity, and EEO. Team Members can only view the Recruiter Operations and Hiring Manager dashboards. Limited Team Members can only view the Hiring Manager dashboard.
