Adding reports to your dashboard is a powerful way to visualize data and keep important metrics front and centre. However, not all report types are compatible with dashboard integration. Below you’ll find a guide to which reports you can add to your dashboards and which ones are not currently supported.
Reports Compatible with Dashboards
You can enhance your dashboard with a variety of dynamic reports to suit your data presentation needs. The following report types are supported:
- Area: Show trends over time with a filled curve graph.
- Area-spline: Combine the smoothness of a spline with the filling of an area chart.
- Bar: Compare different sets of data with horizontal bars.
- Bubble: Visualize data with varying bubble sizes to represent different values.
- Column: Display data in vertical bars to easily compare across categories.
- Gauge: Illustrate the completion rate or level of a single metric.
- Line: Connect individual data points in a straight line to show trends.
- Network: Depict relationships and networks between different entities.
- Pie: Represent parts of a whole in a circular chart.
- Polar: Plot data along the polar radius with this circular graph type.
- Scatter: Use points to represent two variables in a data set.
- Spline: Display data with a smooth line to highlight trends or variations.
- Google Map: Integrate geographical data with an interactive map.
- Monte Carlo: Uses probability models to predict possible outcomes in complex systems.
- Cumulative Matrix: Displays total accumulations across two variables in a grid format.
Reports Not Supported on Dashboards
Certain types of reports are currently not visible on dashboards due to their complex structures or specific interaction models. These include:
- Dashboard (nested dashboards are not supported)
- List (However, this can be added as a dual report)
- Summary Series
- Table (This too can be added as a dual report)
Special Conditions for List and Table Reports
While List and Table reports cannot be directly added as standalone elements on dashboards, they can be incorporated as part of a dual report. This allows for a combined view that pairs the list or table with another supported report type, providing a comprehensive perspective.
