Wow, I just thought I’d check on how many dashboards we handle at DashThis. I knew we had a bunch, but I’m still surprised do see that we have more than 23,000 active reports!
From time to time, I check some of them to see how our clients use our reporting tool. I guess there are as many different ways to create a good dashboard as there are great web agencies out there.
One thing that stands out from the crowd though: most of our dashsboard-intensive users (clients with more than 20 dashboards and reports in their account) keep things very simple.
I could say they follow the KISS principle when creating their dashboards.
What is the KISS principle?
KISS stands for “Keep it simple, stupid”. Or said otherwise, the simpler the better.
