This Excel dashboard is for teams who track key metrics in an Excel spreadsheet, but want these metrics to be visible and accessible at a glance.
Excel spreadsheets themselves are a popular way of sharing key business metrics with team members and stakeholders. But using spreadsheets to communicate fast-moving metrics has several major drawbacks:
- Readers may not know which numbers in the spreadsheet are the most important
- The design is uninspiring
- Downloading and opening a spreadsheet takes time and effort
- By the time people look at the spreadsheet the information may be out of date
In contrast, a wall-mounted Excel dashboard makes important spreadsheet metrics easy for teams to access and understand. And because a dashboard is live, it ensures that important information is seen before it’s out of date.
All the data on this dashboard comes from a single Excel file uploaded to Dropbox. Any saved changes to the Excel file are synced with the dashboard automatically, and this ensures that only up-to-date information is displayed to your team.
