Reporting dashboards provide the ability to do immediate/at-a-glance analysis of planning activities.
Provide real-time collaboration on the plan across the user community
Use same best practices as Planning Dashboard; de-clutter, highlight exceptions, main display grid vs informative data grid, commentaries
Dashboard Content flow
One Key Analysis per dashboard
Should be used when a global context must be set for the entire dashboard; i.e. Time Period or Territory
Page selectors should be ordered based on usage and should be consistent across dashboards
Display grid (below charts)
Navigation to Instructions where necessary
Dynamic navigation in the plan across the hierarchies; i.e. Click on a level 1 item in one grid, will display relevant L2's and below
