The Bango Development team has just completed work on the brand new Management Tools Custom Dashboard. This great new feature will allow you to view your analytics data like never before and is available now! Bango’s new dashboard gives you complete control of your data with fully customizable views and data reports. You still have the choice of viewing your dashboard in the current classic format, however if you’d like to give the new dashboard a try it couldn’t be easier. Simply click on the ‘Switch to the new Dashboard’ link on the upper left of the Management Tools Dashboard screen and you will be re-directed to the new dashboard, which is pre-loaded with a selection of reports to get you started.
When your new Custom Dashboard loads, you will be presented with a selection of reports, ready for you to configure and edit according to your own preference. You can create up to 10 dashboards per package, with up to 10 report widgets on each.
Adding a new dashboard is easy, just click on the blue menu button to show the options menu. Ticking the ‘Shared’ box before selecting the dashboard type shares this dashboard with all users of the current package. From this menu, you can also delete a dashboard, or set any one as your default.
Adding new reports is just as simple. Click on the blue Add Report link and a new blank widget will appear, ready for you to select a report with optional filter. You can also reload your reports with a different date range using the drop down box in the top left of the screen.
Change the name of your dashboard by double clicking on it’s title and editing.
You can change the position of the reports on a desktop computer by dragging and dropping the widgets to your desired location. Each report can be edited by clicking the cog icon in the top right of the widget container. In edit mode you change it’s name by double clicking on the title, select a different report from the drop-down menu, add a filter to the report, delete it, or copy it to another one of your dashboards.
For filters to be available on the dashboard you must first create a saved filter on a suitable report in the main Analytics pages. For more information on creating and saving filters please see our Knowledge Base.
When the report is filtered, you will see a filter icon at the top of the widget as below. Hovering over this icon will show the name of the filter that has been applied.
The reports themselves show a snapshot of data from the corresponding full report, with charts that show further details on mouse hover. Reports will be rendered with either a total figure, a bar chart, a pie chart, or a line chart.
We do hope that you enjoy the new dashboard, with templates available for web, payment and app reports. However if you prefer the classic version you can always switch back, just click the ‘Switch to classic Dashboard’ link on the top left of the page at any time.
As always, we’d love to hear your comments and thoughts, so please feel free to leave us your input below!
