Step 2: Fine-Tune Your Dashboard for Fast Data Analysis
Dashboards should present data in a quick, easy-to-scan format with the most relevant information understandable at a glance. In the GI.bench dashboard, charts and graphic elements are individually configurable to make an effective dashboard display.
In a chart, click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner to open the Settings menu. Here you can configure the chart axes, colors, and zoom behavior. You can select two types of cursors; the tooltip will show the live value of the data set when you hover over them, and a marker adds two vertical sliders to compare the difference between two data sets in the chart. In graphical elements like LED, gage, or bar chart, you can configure color ranges. Color ranges allow you to set up predefined colors for individual ranges of measurement values as an additional visual cue for the user.
