Continuing on from my previous blog post on Analytics Overview series, in this post, I am going to walk you through the process of building a comprehensive report and dashboard involving lots of charts involving data from multiple tables.
Some of the key features for dashboard designer are:
Interactive Ad-Hoc Dashboards – Building dashboards in Analytics Center is easy and intuitive, thanks to Analytics Center’s familiar Web-based feel. The Dashboard Designer Studio comes with preset layouts.
Advanced Visualization – Create interactive and animated visuals with drill downs and data hierarchy. Get a view of real-time information displayed in impactful charts and graphs, and present it in a more persuasive way.
Business KPIs – Efficiently setup the KPIs to view both non-time sensitive (trends, insights) and time sensitive (live business metrics) KPIs.
Promotes Re-usability – Include parts of existing reports to the dashboard.
Persuasive Presentation – Comes with presentation mode where dashboard tiles can be viewed in a slideshow with auto scroll.
Following video will walk you through the report design experience and see some of the advanced formatting features in action and finally use those report parts in a dashboard.
