Dashboards are essential for businesses to monitor and analyze their data in a visual and easily digestible format. With the growing importance of data-driven decision-making, businesses must have effective dashboards that provide meaningful insights and help drive better business outcomes.

In this week's article, we're excited to announce that SpreadsheetWeb Hub now offers a powerful feature enabling users to create dynamic and interactive dashboards to monitor and analyze their data. This new feature allows users to easily track key performance indicators (KPIs), visualize data, and share insights with their teammates.

The Dashboard functionality has been in the works for a few months. SpreadsheetWeb Hub's dashboard feature is highly customizable; workspace owners and users with necessary dashboard permissions can create dashboards with custom layouts using a variety of widgets, including various lists throughout the system, data page layouts, and chat functionality.

Using Dashboards

Dashboards are an essential component of SpreadsheetWeb Hub as they give users a centralized location to view, analyze, and interact with their data.

By creating interactive dashboards customized to fit the needs of the businesses, workspace members can explore the data and interact with the widgets to gain insights and make decisions based on the information presented. Also, created dashboards can be configured as the default home page in the system, which will help users to see all the information they need as soon as they log in to their SpreadsheetWeb Hub accounts.

With various widgets available, SpreadsheetWeb Hub's dashboard feature offers a wide range of practical use cases for businesses of all sizes and industries. In the next section, we will talk about those widgets and how they can be used to improve efficiency.


A widget is a component that provides a specific function. Widgets are often used to display information or provide easy access to frequently used features or applications. In SpreadsheetWeb Hub dashboards widgets are used to display data in a visual and interactive format, allowing users to monitor and analyze their workspaces in real-time.

The data widget is the most used widget in dashboards. With the Data widget, users can see the data page of a specific application, view, analyze and work on the data in a few clicks. Using this widget allows data to be accessible for multiple applications in one place. Whether you're tracking sales performance, financial metrics, or operational efficiency, the data widget offers a customizable and interactive way to monitor and analyze your data. For example, a business can have multiple HR related applications. Employees can access all HR related data from a single HR dashboard.

The next widget we will talk about is Labels. By adding labels to dashboards, businesses can easily share announcements, warnings, updates or needed information with workspace members so that no one misses anything important.

With the App widget, businesses can provide an application card to users so they to quickly use this application directly without going to the Applications page. Finally, businesses can provide users with a chat room for a specific application with the App Chat widget. Users can use it easily to communicate and share thoughts and documents without the hassle.

The final widget we will talk about is Analytics. Businesses can add a window to view activity logs within the workspace by using this widget. With the Analytics widget, businesses can effortlessly track user activities and monitor actions within the workspace as soon as they log into their SpreadsheetWeb Hub accounts.

Access to Dashboards

In SpreadsheetWeb Hub, dashboard permission is an important fact that allows businesses to control who can view and edit their dashboards.

Dashboard permissions allow administrators to control access to dashboards at the user or group level using Tags and Identity Templates. This means that you can limit access to specific dashboards based on job function, department, or other criteria. By doing so, you can ensure that only authorized users can access sensitive data and maintain the integrity of your dashboards.

In addition to permissions, widget visibility and enabled actions in Dashboards depend on user permissions and restrictions. For example, if a user cannot access the analytics page, the widget won't be visible to them. This also applies to Apps, Data, Application Chat, Workspaces and App widgets. If a user does not have access or has read-only access to data and applications, they will not be able to see those widgets or will only get a limited view depending on their user permissions.

SpreadsheetWeb Hub's permissions and access features allow businesses to control access to their dashboards and maintain the security and integrity of their data. With these features, you can ensure that only authorized users can view and edit your dashboards and track any access to them to maintain data security.

SpreadsheetWeb Hub's dashboard feature is a valuable addition to any business looking to optimize its business operations. SpreadsheetWeb Hub offers a powerful tool for businesses to monitor and analyze their data in a visual and easily digestible format. With customizable widgets and layouts, businesses can gain valuable insights into their operations and increase their workspace's efficiency.

Using SpreadsheetWeb Hub dashboards can help users save time, make more informed decisions, and drive better business outcomes. For more information about how to use SpreadsheetWeb Hub's new Dashboard feature, do not forget to check out our help page about this feature!
