Dashboard Design Considerations
Consider the following before creating a Dashboard:
- Audience: Who is it for (User or Customer? Technician or Executive? Etc.)?
- Purpose: How will it be used (For at-a-glance statistics? For trending? For navigation? Etc.)?
- Client access: From where will it be accessed (Desktop Client? Browser Client? Portal? Cherwell Mobile?)?
- Scope: Global, Role, Team, User?
- Layout: Which Widgets will be on it (Charts? Gauges? Twitter Feeds?) and what will it look like (colors, font, alignments, etc.)?
- Security: Who can access each Widget?
