These simple expert tips will help you to improve your Power BI Dashboard designing skills, to make it an ideal dashboard:
Tip 1 – Consider the Audience
As your aim is to provide your market audience with the most appealing and effective dashboard, before designing a Power BI dashboard, it is important to consider the target audience’s:
- Vital decision-making metrics
- Use of the particular dashboard
- Cultural/learning experience’s effect on design choice
- Need for relevant, updated and accurate information
- Choice of location for displaying the dashboard
Mainly, the dashboard works as a single point to monitor multiple aspects of the business, sort of an overview of the current business performance. A large number of datasets and reports usually combine to become the information displayed on a dashboard, which can contain a large amount of detail.
Tip 2 – Fit a story on one screen
As dashboards need to provide the relevant information in a concise manner, whenever possible, for the users, it becomes important to prioritize the information to be actually displayed on the dashboard.
Try to keep the tiles aligned, avoiding scrollbars as much as possible, and ensure that the information can be seen in the ‘Full Screen’ mode.
Tip 3 – Effectively display prominent information
The trick to make the users realize the prioritized information is to set the relevant information in a bigger or more prominent font than the others. Always ensure to provide the correct context with such prominently displayed information for better understanding.
Experts suggest that the best location to put the most important information on a dashboard is on the upper left hand corner, followed with the less prioritized information as you go lower.
