What is the data that i should display on my dashboard?

Hello, I am new to QlikView (it's almost 3 weeks i used QlikView). I am on my job training time from my college in a company.

My job is to develop a dashboard with simple sales data.

It is my first time build dashboard and handle sales data,

so I want to ask, what the data that i should display on my dashboard?

I almost imagine as a director of a company, what data that i need to make a decision for my company,

but i just got nothing. Please help me.

You could check some of the demo dashboards on the qlikview site to get some inspiration

For instance:

http://eu.demo.qlik.com/detail.aspx?appName=Consumer%20Goods%20Sales%20-%20JP.qvw

http://eu.demo.qlik.com/detail.aspx?appName=Equity%20Sales%20Analysis.qvw

Or search google 'sales dashboard examples'

Good luck.

I would very strongly recommend asking your users what they want to see - the whole point of a dashboard is to provide someone with the information they need, not the information someone in a different (and sometimes fictional) company needs.

If you don't have access to your users (executives tend to be busy...), try asking for the reports they normally use. That should give you a good idea of what information they're looking at, and you can either replicate it or build up from that.

I'd recommend you give a quick read to http://www.perceptualedge.com/blog/?p=672 , and if you plan on building dashboards regularly, I'd recommend picking up a copy of Stephen Few's "Information Dashboard Design".

Hi.

It might be worth looking at Steve Dark's blog on dashboards.
