The Update Manager Dashboard provides a central location for all update tasks. The dashboard provides analytics for PUM (PeopleSoft Update Manager) that assist in determining your current level of maintenance. The various pivot grids provided on the dashboard, provide access into the maintenance logs and bug information for each database uploaded to the PeopleSoft Update Image.
