  • Metrics - A Metric is an important measure of your performance that your management team has decided to track, like "CSAT Score Last 7D," "Calls Made This Week," or "Closed Won Revenue This Quarter." Pathlight helps you know how you're performing in each of your metrics.

  • Paths - A Path is a grouping of Metrics that shows you your performance across a variety of measures. When you open a Path, it looks a little like a spreadsheet. By clicking on any cell, you can see a history of your performance in that Metric.

  • Inbox - Receive, review, and organize all your Pathlight messages.

  • Dashboard - Pathlight's dashboards make it easy to understand individual, team, or group performance by highlighting key metrics or previewing Path views. You can customize your dashboard by adding metric trend charts, images, GIFs, or text to your dashboard.
