How to :: configure a datawall¶
Disclaimer : This is a paid feature ! And it’s not available from the Studio yet.
As we want to enable our clients to bring insights through data, we created a datawall to showcase dynamic reports on a tv screen, or on a wall, to bring the information to everybody in the company. The datawall is a single page outside the application, available via a button at the bottom of your home when configured, that display during a defined time (configurable) several pages with chosen charts.
The usage is quite different from the application. Example : you are having a break, and in the cafeteria there is a tv screen displaying the performance of the acquisition team.
Select a few stories from your app to create a datawall.
The datawall is reusing existing charts with the ability to override some options in order to better customized the visualizations.
When it’s configured, a button will be displayed at the bottom of the dashboard.
By default, the datawall is generated with the current reports and date selector’s values in the title.
For a better user experience, we recommend to not exceed 4 charts by page (2 rows, 2 charts by rows). You can go up to 6 charts (2 rows, 3 charts).
Master/slave, double charts and drillable charts are not well displayed in the datawall, so you better not use them.
This block of configuration lives into the
at the same level as settings for example.
