Visual dashboards to review performance at-a-glance

It would enable people to see information in near/real-time on a dashboard to drive decision making around product or portfolio performance, which would benefit senior managers and stakeholders, and replace the need for project board reports focused on status updates. I think you need the ability to create your own dashboards, but it will require data visualisation patterns, and templates to get people started. A portfolio dashboard is an absolute must for most organisations.

    As described in the comments, this can be achieved today through the use of live notebooks. Every screen in Aha! can be shared to a notebook, and custom reports/dashboards can be created and shared via the Report pages.

    By setting the notebook to update live, it will always contain the most up to date information.

    Hi Stuart -- you can achieve this today through the use of live notebook pages. With Reports - Pivot or Timeline you can create dashboards. Every screen in Aha! can be shared to a notebook. These then can be set to update live. If you were to take just that notebook page and display it, you'd have your dashboard. Have you given that a try?

    Problem with the notebook is it's not a single page dashboard where parts of the page can display various live data object. For example we have product line owners who would want to see multiple product performance in a single dashboard then trying to flip through multiple pages.  Multiple pages is useful do dive into details. But definitely needs to have a summary dashboard that can aggregate performance data from various products.

    One thing to note is that you can now have multiple views on a single notebook page. Once you have added a view to a notebook page, you can copy it and paste it onto another slide. You can do this multiple times to add additional views to the same page.

    We have a feature in development now that will this process even easier but it can be done now using the workaround above. You can subscribe to this idea to be notified when that is available:

    It takes a lot of clicks to get to a notebook. I would prefer to be able to customize the dashboard by product
