Improved Dropbox Integration and Many More New Features

Last Updated: Thursday, August 8, 2013 by Sofi Hjalmarsson

Since the beginning of August, the team here at Target Dashboard has been working hard on improving, updating and making Target Dashboard a great user experience. As part of this we have been focusing on one of our most popular features: Dropbox Integration.

The result of this is that the Dropbox feature has come out of Beta, and is fully available to all of our users. It’s faster, smoother and easier to use. With the Dropbox feature, you can connect to an Excel spread sheet in your Dropbox folder, import it into Target Dashboard, and then set an update schedule that will automatically update Target Dashboard with new data that is entered into the file in Dropbox.

For example, you can now find all of your Dropbox connections in one place, by selecting My Connectors in the My Data section of Target Dashboard. From there you can manually update each one of them, turn them on and off, or disconnect your Dropbox account altogether. You will also be able to see, at a quick glance, the health of your connections.

Another feature that’s received some extra attention is the Comparison Chart. Previously it didn’t allow for very much customisation, but that’s all been changed. We fixed an issue relating to certain column types in this chart, and added the ability to customise the colours of the chart. Filtering is something else we added to this chart, which will allow you to drill down further into the data you are comparing.

As well as the comparison chart, the Digital Gauge has received a few tweaks. The most notable addition is that you can now customise the title of the gauge to reflect more clearly what it is measuring.

We have also made improvements to the email reports feature, to the presentation view, and we've added several new formulae that can be used in calculated columns. For full details, check out our change log, here!

As always, should you have any questions about Target Dashboard, don’t hesitate to contact us on support@targetdashboard.com.
