    We have a few important points to help you optimize your Datorama Dashboards and there are two key areas where this has to be done.

  • Page Setup
  • Filtering

Datorama Dashboard Page Setup Tips

  • Consider a set-up across several pages, rather than one page with a very extensive list of widgets. Fewer widgets will load quicker for a better user experience.
  • Only display data at the necessary granularity as per KPI. E.g. if weekly tracking is sufficient, don’t display at a daily level.
  • The Rich Text widget is great for design, however do not use too many within one page or performance will notably slow.
  • Ensure that the Rich Text widgets only contain dimensions or measures which are used to represent data. Time comparison widgets often query a lot of data so don’t include too many on one page.
  • Many widgets at the top of a page (e.g. many status widgets) can affect page load times, so limit to the necessary widgets only

Datorama Dashboard Filtering Tips

  • Filter only by the necessary time periods. Lengthy time windows affect performance.
  • Use check boxes if possible; complex rules like ‘not contain’ can slow things down causing performance issues.
  • Apply Interactive Filters to relevant widgets only
  • Set Default Filters if possible when using Interactive Filters, it is better for user experience.

With digital marketing turning more complex in the last few years and spanning multiple channels, data issues are following suit and real marketing insights are getting more challenging. But the fact that Data Integration, Data Modelling and Data Classification is the foundation of your system and can impact your organization right at the bottom level, it cannot be overlooked.
