In the eight part of our Feature Pitch Series, we dedicate ourselves to the individually configurable dashboard and our context-sensitive help.
Once you are logged in, the first thing that appears is the dashboard. This dashboard provides an overview of all important analysis, processes and diagrams. As a first time user you will see a predefined dashboard showing some bigger brand pages. However, the dashboard is completely configurable. So you can quickly and easily put together your own relevant metrics and analysis. Especially for a quick overview of all your tracked pages and metrics, it’s worth creating a custom dashboard.
In each analysis we offer a context-sensitive help by clicking on an icon. It contains important information, tips and hints on the parameters of the respective diagram, for example, how the formulas are composed or references to the validity of the analyzes.
Create A Personalized Dashboard
The dashboard is based on a widget logic. This means, you can create a widget from any analysis, which is then mapped to the dashboard. Just click on Add widget, a new window where you can select a desired analysis will be opened. After you have done this, the new widget gets automatically added to your dashboard. The position of the widgets can be freely adjusted by drag and drop.
By default, the analysis of your standard group is taken as the input data. However, you can quickly customize the settings for any widget by clicking on the top right icons. You can change the group, time period and interval for customization. On the rigt top of each widget are icons to adjust the settings. The small upward triangle hides the widget. The gear opens the settings. In these settings you can change the group, the time period and the interval. By clicking on the question mark you can open a help window. The expanding icon opens the widget in a full view. At least, close the widget by pressing the X.
The Context-Sensitive Help
You find the help icon located in the right corner of each widget. By clicking on the icon the context-sensitive help is opened.
For example in the case of the fan growth rate, the following message is presented: “In this view you are able to compare the relative change in fans of the facebook pages in a specific group in percent. This is an important KPI to compare pages of different sizes.”
In order to give you a better understanding of our tool, not only declarations but also the formulas that are used to calculate the values are given to you in the context-sensitive help.
See you next week. Questions are always welcome.
