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
- 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.
