Dashboards

A dashboard can help you summarize your data with easy-to-understand, real-time data visuals based on measurements and events. It helps you to see the most important information at a glance, so you understand what you are doing right and where you need to take action.

Using dashboards

Dashboards are used to simplify the (sensor) data into more manageable chunks of visual information. This section will provide all information to configure your own dashboards.

Default dashboard

Every project comes with a default dashboard which looks like the one down here. Adjusting the dashboard and adding new ones is done by clicking the little pencil in the top right corner of the screen.

Dashboards configuration

Let’s get started with all the ins and outs regarding the configuration of your own dashboard(s). Click on the pencil (1) in the top-right corner to get your dashboard in edit mode. You can see which dashboard is active in edit mode (2) and you can change the name by clicking on the name of the dashboard. Drag and drop the tabs by clicking on the six dots to change the sequence of your dashboards (3). You can also determine the layout of the panels per screen size (4). At last, you can start a new dashboard from scratch by hitting the plus-button (5) or add a new panel to an existing dashboard (6).

Using the dashboard

Dashboard layout

The dashboard layout has several configuration options for the different screen sizes.

Resize and order panels

You can adjust the panel sizes and drag them where you want. The maximum number of columns you can use is 12.

Layout configuration per screen size

Screen size matters. Each screen size has a unique layout in terms of panel sizes and order, so you can visualize things differently when you look at your tablet (screen size M) or phone (screen size S).

Managing dashboards

You can create as many dashboards as you want and use as many widgets as you like. This section will explain the possibilities.

Creating a dashboard

Creating a dashboard is fairly easy. Click on the plus button, give the dashboard a descriptive name and drag it to the right place. The first dashboard is the one that will open when a member opens the project.

Using the dashboard

Adding panels

The next step is to add panels to your dashboard. Panels divide your dashboard into more manageable chunks of visual information that allows you to see what you are doing right and where you need to action or improve.

Click on the ‘add panel’ to open the pop-up with an overview of widget types you can add to the panel.
