How to Design the Best Dashboard for You

An Infocaptor Dashboard is the best and most effective way of getting your business intelligence software to provide you with the results and information that you need.

However, it is important that you follow some simple steps when setting up your dashboard, so that you get the optimum benefits of this management software.

  • Choose wisely
  • Less is more
  • Limit time period

Choose Wisely:

When you are setting up your Infocaptor dashboard initially, you need to decide what are the most important data points for you and your management team. That is to say, you need to know what your key performance indicators are. Once you have chosen these categories, you can focus on using the Infocaptor dashboard software to arrange your dashboard effectively.

Less is More:

The big advantage of using Infocaptor dashboard software is that you are provided with reports that quickly, clearly and effectively provide you with the information that you need to know. Therefore, a dashboard that is cluttered with too many graphs and charts can be ineffective, as there are too many things vying for your attention at the same time.

Limit Time Period:

In order to get concise results, keep the period of time over which your reports are generated with Infocaptor to a certain minimum. It is better to keep a limit to the amount of data points in a certain graph or chart, so that the results are as clear as possible. If you wish to compare data over a longer period of time, you should extende the interval between each data point, or generate two Infocaptor Dashboard graphs and compare them.
