Summary: While a business dashboard will help you make sense of your data, not all dashboards are created equal. Typical dashboards are inflexible–displaying a pre-determined set of metrics in a pre-set layout. Learn how to create flexible dashboards that your users love, while avoiding the common problems found in many modern dashboards.
A powerful reporting and BI tool, dashboards combine essential business metrics together on a single page. They provide a live overview of business operations and help business leaders make quick, informed decisions.
But, not all dashboards are created equal. Some display too much data. Others offer limited features. Still others are flat-out confusing.
But, perhaps the biggest problem facing dashboards: Inflexibility. Typical dashboards display a pre-determined set of metrics in a set layout.
For instance, a sales dashboard might display metrics like daily/monthly product sales, geographical sales numbers, top customers, and salesperson performance, to name a few. If one sales manager needed additional metrics, or metrics that differ from the other sales manager’s dashboards, they run into problems. They must either create a brand new dashboard themselves, or request a new dashboard from the IT department.
