HOWTO Build a digital dashboard in Lianja

Rate this Entry
A digital dashboard is a business intelligence tool that allows business leaders to track, analyze and report on KPIs and metrics. Modern, interactive dashboards make it easy to combine data from multiple sources and deeply explore and analyze the data directly within the dashboard itself.

You can build a digital dashboard in Lianja without any coding needed.

In this article I will show you the steps needed to build a dashboard like this.

Dashboards are made up of cells which can be of different sizes.

Note that the cells are all related together as you navigate records using the ActionBar or the Query Builder. The Dashboard cells maintain their section relationships that you have specified.

Any type of section can be placed in a cell even custom sections.

A dashboard section occupies the whole of a page when it is rendered. As with all other Lianja UI sections it has an ID, in this case section2.

Sections contained on the page that belong to the dashboard should have their Dashboard group attribute set to the name of the dashboard group they belong to. In this case section2.
