DataDeck just launched their new template feature and we are loving it.
Let’s have a closer look at what dashboard templates are and how they can help you. For an overview of all our 1-click dashboard templates you can go directly to our Template gallery.
What are dashboard templates?
Dashboard templates are pre-made dashboards that we created for you. They contain frequently used cards for a specific datasource, or a combination of datasources, and offer a quick overview of your data, without having to put the dashboard together yourself.
Why are we doing this?
We know that building the right dashboard can take up quite some time and a lot of DataDeck users are using datasources for the same purpose. Because we want DataDeck to be easy to use and help you visualize your data quickly, we created dashboard templates of the most important data in reports.
How is this helping you?
The 1-click dashboard templates will save you a lot of time. By adding our dashboard template(s) you will have a quick overview of the most important data, without spending a lot of time on creating the whole dashboard yourself. All you have to do is to connect your datasource, and DataDeck will pull all the data into the widgets automatically. In case you would like to customize the dashboard, you can easily edit, add and/or delete widgets.
Available dashboard templates
Currently, we are having 9 dashboard templates available. When you click on the template’s name, you will go to post where you can learn more about the (specific) template.
