Fieldstack intelligence dashboards are the next evolution in making your data work for you. Your data in Fieldstack is a treasure trove of information - by viewing it in aggregated graphics & metrics, you gain critical insights into your business and can make informed decisions about your operations. Each dashboard is a set of unique "widgets", presenting a combination of: Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), focused metric tables, graphic displays of your data, a data table that can be quickly exported to a spreadsheet for further analysis. Your dashboards have been designed with the intent of providing useful and actionable data, to help make your business better.
KPIs are presented in a form that can be compared with past performance and with your operational goals, providing a tool to correct course or determine when an initiative is having the intended impact. These will most often display at the top of the dashboard for a quick look at how the business is performing.
Focused metrics are mini tables of data and can be refined with filters, providing both an overview and the ability to drill into related details. Dashboard metrics often use calculations of your data to present additional levels of information.
Graphics presentations of data show trends and anomalies that are difficult to envision looking only at a table of data. The saying goes that a picture is worth a thousand words... your data in graphics tells a story about your operations, and often prompts you to think "why?", "what caused that?", "that is or is not what I expected to see". Graphics are sometimes a starting point to focus deeper into the data and take action.
For the granular data that is represented on the dashboard, it can sometimes be helpful to work with that data outside of the dashboard. Data tables are most often at the bottom of the dashboard and have an option to be exported. The recommended export is to a CSV file, where you can shape and view your data in a variety of ways.
Most dashboards have filters on the right side that allow you to look at specific dates, locations and other attributes. Additionally, many widgets are setup to "control the dashboard", meaning that you can select certain fields that will filter the entire dashboard - for example, choosing a specific date in a widget would result in the entire dashboard filtering to that date.
Dashboards can be shared within your organization, allowing your team to access the data needed to run the business.
