Fast Track Your Wave Dashboard Development

Analytics Cloud

When you are building dashboards in any BI or Analytics tool, the design of the dashboard is usually a challenge that has to be solved each and every time. While each dashboard’s needs are different, I thought it would be great to always start off with a design that can help with telling the story of the data elements and metrics to be showcased.

With Salesforce Wave Analytics, you can easily use a pre-built template to get you started down that path of a standard look and feel. I released a Salesforce Wave Template that can be used by Wave’s Dashboard Templater.

This will get you started quicker with a dashboard that has a predefined section for:

  • Your logo
  • Filters
  • KPIs
  • A dedicated section to engage in analysis
  • A dedicated section to showcase metrics
  • A dedicated section to highlight metrics
  • A dedicated section to place trends
  • A data explorer section to view raw data

You can just change the colors of the boxes currently defined and have it branded in the style that you want.
