Dashboard Systems Design
Data is really only as useful as the system that is designed to use it, display it, and provide users to interact with it based on their own needs and goals.
At FuseLab Creative, our focus on dashboard and interface design that makes use of critical data sources has led us to some of our most important work. We are now primarily working with organizations helping people live healthy and more prosperous lives through access to and usage of different types of data.

What features should a data dashboard have?
A “data dashboard” is a term people understand, however, it includes everything under the sun, including screen design for ATM, social media platforms, and system designs for mobile phones and tablets, to name just a few.
Keys To UI Dashboard Design
Data dashboard design keeps evolving over time, and so does our approach to UI/UX design. There was a time when usability was the most important factor when considering the design, but we live in a different time that demands so much more!
5 Golden Rules For Building Great Dashboard Design
Maximize Your Dashboard Real Estate
The strategic use of space on a dashboard is as important as the content itself. FuseLab creates multi-layer dashboards that work to keep everything needed in front of the user with very little need for scrolling. All information fits within the original dashboard parameters and continues allow for deeper dives.
Modularity and Connectivity
Possibly one of the most important details to consider in the development of a dashboard is how all of the content blocks relate to each other. Additionally, when user clicks on a tab or "view more" what happens to the rest of the interface, do thing rearrange, does the selected content expand and contract back? All very important questions.
Grouping of Data
As certain selections are made on a dashboard, the selection itself is feeding the dashboard information, and given this fact, the UX should support that selection by offering similar content and additional options within that same category, or at least something that is some way similar in its context or data type.
Personas, Case Studies, User Stories
It's not what you know about your audience, it's what you don't know and how you can design a system to service the tech savvy as well as the first time user. For instance, if your UX does not offer a clear path to desired information for a savvy user, they will immediately look elsewhere for what they need. With most people you have one chance, so make the most of it and study your audience.
Develop KPIs and Keep Track
Possibly the easiest task in dashboard design is to track your users experience. Maybe you use hotjar, maybe you are just watching simple analytics, whatever the case may be, watching how people interact with your platform, making continuous changes as they are warranted, and have a set of KPI goals will help keep you on track and serve your users better and better over time.
