Rethinking Dashboards: Design with the user in mind

We'll discuss the five principles of design, the best iDashboards features to create a better user experience and higher adoption rates, designing for a target audience, following intuition, and increasing data digestion for all users. We'll also provide you with a handy design take-away reference sheet so you can easily analyze your existing dashboards and apply what you've learned back at the office.
