Modular Design – Easy to Customize

Customize Dashboards

The Dashboards are designed to be modular.

  • Charts: If you do not need one of the charts in the Dashboard, you can unprotect the sheet and just remove that one chart.
  • Slicers: If you do not need one of the slicers in the Dashboard, you can unprotect the sheet and just remove that one slicer.
  • Renaming Slicers: You can rename the slicers by unprotecting the sheet and then changing the settings of the slicer.
  • Resizing Charts: Depending on the data in your organization, you may need certain charts and slicers to be long or short. Not a problem. Just unprotect the sheet and resize the chart to fit your needs. It will not impact the dashboards in any negative way.

Customize Attributes

The template has totally 14 attributes and 10 of them can be customized by you as needed for your organization.

  • 4 Employee Attributes (2 can be customized)
  • 7 Job Attributes (7 can be customized)
  • 3 Exit Attributes (1 can be customized)

In the Employee Data sheet, these attributes are clearly labeled whether they can be renamed and customized. You can just click on the column header and rename it. They will be immediately reflected in the dashboard.

You can also add more columns as needed to store information about employees.

One File for Life

The template design allows data to be entered every day as new employees join, existing employees leave, and employees change location/department. You don’t need a new file every month or year. You can continue to use the same file for ever.

All your data in one file. Simple & Effective.
