Do you hold a weekly meeting to review your performance indicators? Besides, do you have little time to plan it?
You want to get your colleagues on board and you would like to present both clear and attractive data, but you don’t know where to start.
The purpose of a dashboard is to enable real-time decision-making. You must be able to see at a glance all the information you are interested in.
If you take design seriously, here are some tips to make your dashboards attractive in less than 10 minutes.
A Simple and Light Interface
Remember that it is important for your users to be able to navigate through a simple and intuitive interface. If the tool is too complicated, users will avoid it. Avoid overloading your pages and provide easy-to-use elements.
Play with Colors and Contrasts
A good dashboard should feature no more than two fonts and three colors. For a more pleasing appearance, try using complementary colors.
Be aware that overly strong contrasts can cause eye fatigue. Therefore, we advise you to soften contrasts and use icons.
This way you will avoid inconveniences to your users.
Visual Hierarchy is Essential
Needless to say, consistent dashboards contribute to a better understanding of data and a smooth tab navigation.
If possible, we advise you to put no more than seven elements on the same dashboard page.
