What is a Dashboard

The «What is a Dashboard» Area integrates solutions for the creation of different types of Visual Dashboards. Each solution is designed for a specific visualizing purpose.

For example, Comparison Dashboard is designed for visual Item Comparison — in other words, for the ranking of data series. Each solution includes one or two Live Object Libraries.

Live Objects are special graphic objects which can read out data from a user defined external source at regular intervals, and change their appearance accordingly.

Each Live Object is a ready to use Graphic Indicator, Chart or Map. So to create a custom dashboard you simply need to drag the Live Objects from the library into your dashboard page, and set the path to the data source file for each of them. Update the data source file in free time, and your visual dashboard will show the actual data.

You can save a data file for your company or team dashboard into a shared folder of cloud file storage, for example DropBox. This gives your colleagues the ability to update the data for the dashboard.

It’s possible to freely combine Indicators, Charts and Maps from all these solutions into your visual dashboard as you need. You also can create multipage dashboards and show them in presentation mode.

Finally you can demonstrate your dashboard on the biggest display you have, for example on a large screen TV on the wall of your office.
