To create your own dashboards, keep the following best practices in mind.
Take stock of your data
First, find out what types of data you can access, what you need to report on, and which decisions that data will inform.
Enable your team
Determine the highest priority goals for your team and develop dashboards that will steer them toward the best course of action.
Empower users to explore
Give users the tools to get the complete story from their data by allowing them to explore all angles of their data — not just conduct linear queries.
Keep visuals simple
If your dashboard has too many complex options, users can become confused. Aim to deliver quick insights with clean, simple views. Get inspired by the ten best modern data visualization examples.
Allow users access to the right data
Make it easier for users to target the insights they need by providing them access to only the data that’s relevant to them.
Embed reporting into everyday tools
Give users access to insights wherever they work by embedding reporting into websites, apps, portals and processes.
