Like people, dashboards come in all shapes and sizes, from the most basic bar graph to interactive, user-friendly reporting structures. Both types of dashboards can display almost identical information and yet users prefer the more visually-appealing option. The success of a dashboard is entirely based on how efficiently it allows users to make decisions, or more specifically, how quickly users can find (and interpret) what they are looking for.
Let’s start out with a few questions:
- Do you have fundamental dashboard skills and are looking to take them to the next level?
- Have you already created a dashboard with basic graphs and tables and are looking for a way to “push the envelope”?
- Have you been tasked with developing a “locked down” dashboard for stakeholder distribution?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this course is for you. Learn the fundamentals of interactive dashboard design to increase user functionality with our newest installment in the Excel Dashboard series.
