Upcoming Features and Roadmap Update

Last Updated: Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by Sofi Hjalmarsson

As you may remember, we outlined a roadmap for 2014 in early January, and we thought that it was time now to provide you with an update on the features we have planned. The below is ordered by expected release date, but this is subject to change as each project moves forward.

Linked Summary Tables

It’s quite common that you have daily or even entity level data in Target Dashboard, but that you at the same time have a monthly target. This often causes a problem as it’s difficult to use data that’s very granular to calculate a higher level target (i.e. a monthly or weekly target).

For this purpose we’re working on improving linked columns in such a way that they will be able to pull in categorised data from a table with entity level data (e.g. one row per sale per sales person, or one row per support case) and summarise it by month or week while still retaining a level of categorisation to filter by.

Google AdWords Connection

As we are already connected to Google Analytics, the next step is to connect to Google AdWords as well. These two Google products work very well together, and it is very common that they are used together.

The connection will work much the same in Target Dashboard as the connection to Google Analytics, and it would allow you to pull in metrics such as PPC campaigns and cost per click.

Reporting Module

We expect to release the Reporting Module for customised and scheduled reports by the end of March.

This extensive new feature will allow you to build custom reports using any charts and visuals that you would like to use. They don’t even have to belong to a dashboard. You will be able to add commentary to each item in the report, a custom cover page with your organisation’s logo and information, and many other useful things.

New Table Editor

We’re also working on revamping how you manually edit a data table in Target Dashboard. We’re making it more dynamic, faster and more intuitive.

Timelines/Gantt Charts

Another feature that’s been heavily requested is a way of charting a task or a metric against a deadline. We started planning this feature in early February, and we’re hoping to release it in the second quarter of the year.

This new feature would allow you to track deadlines, projects and tasks against a deadline.

We’re very excited about all of the features above, and we can’t wait to be able to show them to you. If you have any questions or feedback, let us know on support@targetdashboard.com.

Best regards,
