Dashboard Reporting means a series of actions a user needs to do to build and display some report on a dashboard. It involves manipulation with dashboard data and tools to focus on the most critical information that is necessary for decision making.
Dashboard reporting carries out the following functions:
- Present critical data in an convenient display format on a single computer screen
- Provide inputs for data analysis and decision making
- Communicate information to a specific audience
- Record data changes and updates
Dashboard reporting is best presented as a process that aims to visually present critical data in summary form, so that users can make quick and effective decisions. For example, task management can be analyzed through using a task analytics dashboard that reports about task performance, effectiveness and productivity of employees, so that managers can use this reporting data to make decisions regarding employee workload and delegation. Managers will use the dashboard to display employee-critical data in summary form.
