For some KPIs, regular tracking is a must so that you can react in real-time and change things up if you see them going down. This is why having them not only available but also visible on your mobile devices is a great option.

We’ve got two new cool mobile features to help you do just that—Mobile Widgets for both Android and iOS and Apple Watch compatibility.

Databox Widgets Are Here 

iOS and Android Databox app Widgets enable you to track the most important KPIs from your Favorite Metrics list. Easily check the numbers in real-time by just glancing at your phone… no more weekend surprises or late nights. React at a moment’s notice by digging into the data before it becomes an issue.

This is a great way to keep an eye on your metrics at any time and on the go. As far as the number of metrics available for monitoring, well – on your iOS device, you can monitor the 1st, first 3, or first 6 favorite metrics from your Home screen. While on your Android device, you can monitor the 1st, first 3, or all of your Favorite Metrics. This ensures that you will always be kept in the loop when it comes to fresh data.

Adding the Databox Widgets to your smartphone is simple… 

For Android—

  • On your Home screen, touch and hold an empty space.
  • Tap “Widgets”.
  • Touch and hold a widget. You’ll get images of your Home screens.
  • Slide the widget to where you want it. Lift your finger.

For Apple—

  • On your Home Screen, touch and hold a widget or an empty area until the apps begin to move.
  • Tap the “+” button in the upper-left corner.
  • Select a widget (you can choose from three widget sizes) then tap “Add Widget”.
  • Tap “Done”.

Now all that is left is for you to log in or download the mobile app to experience these updates. 

Databox Widgets have your back for when a notification just isn’t enough.

Keep in mind that the data syncing takes place on the iOS Mobile app and is then sent to your Apple Watch. For the data sync to be executed correctly, you must have the Background App Refresh enabled on your iOS device. You can read more on how to enable this here
