Branded Dashboard Example

Measure Display

Rename Measures

Rename Measures

Label measures however they make sense to your team. Maybe volume sold is too vague. Maybe margin doesn’t necessarily specify it enough. Or you could clarify labels further. For example, you could rename Units to How many we sold, or COGS to How Much it Cost.

group measures

Group Measures

Along with renaming measures, you can also group them. Create and display a group of measures related to inventory and sales for example.

Flexible Table Layouts

Swapped Table

Switch the rows and columns; for example, a swapped Comparative shows the members in columns and the measures in rows.

flexible table layout


Place the data in a table that shows detailed performance metrics for the member you are focused on rather than comparing members. The measures are displayed in rows. Columns show values (This and/or Last), difference, percent change, mix, average, and/or budgets for each measure.
