Do you have too many tabs in your dashboard? Are you looking for a way to slim down your story?
If your dashboard is suffering from too many tabs, then here’s a super simple way to slim that number down. Not only will this reduce the amount of charts tiles and other things that you have to maintain, it will also make your users happier because they only need 1 tab instead of 5 (for example).
This approach works best for pages where the layout is relatively the same and the main difference is the measure that would like to display.
Here’s an example of a dashboard with many pages. Each page is focused a different measure.
Here’s the same dashboard in the new format as a 1-page story. What’s different with the new story is this input control panel. Here, I built the measures as the input and you can do that by navigating to your design panel and clicking here.
It’s as simple as that. Let me know in the comments if this inspired you to slim down your dashboard.
I believe there’s an incredible story hidden in every team. The way I share the lessons in these stories is through conversation and data. I just happen to build the analytics that asks the next question.
