Track performance from multiple sources in one dashboard

Need to track performance from various sources in one dashboard?

With the Designer, you can easily toggle between all of your connected sources and pull any of the pre-built metrics or visualizations into your dashboard as needed.

Custom date range support

Compare current performance to goals, past performance, and more

Need to see how performance is trending toward your goals? Or how this month’s sales performance compares to last month’s or last quarter’s? Use the Datablock Editor to select customizations and measure any metric in your dashboard against the goals you’ve set in Databox, previous performance, and more.

Hundreds of pre-build data visualizations

Customize your dashboard using simple drag-and-drop functionality

Creating reports from scratch can be intimidating. Which metrics should you track? How should you visualize them? We took care of this for you. We’ve created pre-built visualizations of the most popular metrics associated with any of our 70+ data sources. This means all you need to do is drag-and-drop the ones you need into your dashboard and they will populate with your data and visualization automatically.

Rearrange metrics on your dashboards with ease

Customizing the way your data is presented on your dashboard is as simple as selecting any Datablock to resize it and/or move it around to make room for other visualizations. Databoards are dynamic, so anytime you move or resize a Datablock, the rest of your dashboard will adjust automatically.
