Data is useless if it is not shared and used to make informed decisions. It's important to keep your company's most important KPIs front and center so everyone can access them.
Transparency and visualization not only help promote teamwork and collaboration, it also improves the work environment and helps keep everyone in the company informed.
With the sharing functionality you can:
» Create private Dashboards to experiment with your own metrics and projects.
» Share Dashboards with your entire team to collaborate and improve information visibility and accessibility.
» Generate reports to share with different stakeholders through a public link that does not require login.
Just click on Share Dashboard and select the access settings, you can change them at any time.
⚠️ Please note that when you generate a public link users will only have access to that specific Dashboard and won’t be able to click on the graphs to see the sessions and qualitative data.
