Where to use interactive dashboards

Dashboards are useful across most industries, as all companies have specific metrics and key goals they care about. From retail and education to big business and personal goals, dashboards can help anyone.

Here’s how dashboards can make your life easier:

Track the metrics that matter

Dashboards help you stay focused on the metrics that matter to your business. They are the best way to analyze company performance and spot problems that need to be addressed. 

 Easy to understand at a glance

Dashboards effectively take complex data and visualize them in bite-sized charts, tables, or maps. Data visualizations are crucial for understanding and readability. 

Dashboards save time

Dashboards put all the information you need in one place. You can view key metrics without wasting time navigating across different systems, tools, and data sources.

Quickly share data with executives and team members

Dashboards give other people access to important data. Team members can share KPIs with others from desktop and mobile devices, and managers can grant public and private access to view different levels of information.

Spot problems early

The more you know about how your business is performing, the better chance you have to stay on track. Dashboards help spot issues or potential problems early on, giving you the opportunity to take a closer look and adjust strategy.

1. Keep the design of your dashboard simple. Make it easy to read so viewers will understand the data quickly. Compare your performance to previous periods. This helps viewers understand what performance metrics are exceeding expectations and what needs to be improved.

2. Don't try to show everything on your dashboard. Highlight the most important KPIs for your department or industry. You don’t want to overload people with too much information.

3. Display the most important metrics with a larger font size. This draws people’s attention to key performance metrics first.

4. Design dashboards that are responsive and easy to read on all devices. Make sure people can view dashboards outside of the office from mobile phones or tablets.
