Dashboarding Rule No.5: Give Additional Information Through Interaction

Hinterlasse einen Kommentar

The integration of interactive activities into the dashboard offers many advantages. For example, a navigation bar helps you keep track of what’s going on as you drill down into deeper levels. It also serves as an intuitive control where you can skip any level. In addition, it helps to create and structure the dashboard, because every page needs a name and every path has to be defined. We recommend simplifying navigation and interaction as much as possible – three filters and three lines in the title concept are usually enough. Even within diagrams, interaction in the form of (combined) highlighting, mouse over or drill in functions provides a higher added value.

This rule and others are explained in detail in the reportingimpulse Academy. Get your Visual Data Analytics Beginner’s Package here! In addition to our most important rules for dashboarding, it includes learning videos on the corresponding topic, book recommendations, reportingimpulse SharePics and much more.
