Dashboards 101

iDashboards has the most variety of charts in the industry. This can make choosing the right chart a little overwhelming. To help in selecting the best chart, I ask myself, “What story am I trying to tell?” In other words, what is the purpose of the chart?

To give credit where due, this table started from the list, Chart Selection Process. I added some recommendations and iDashboards specific chart types to broaden your scope. If you see some chart types you are unfamiliar with, iDashboards OSKAR forum users can download examples here. Otherwise, send a reply below and I’ll provide you some samples.

I hope this helps you get more creative and find powerful insights.
