Hi Bo Gurus,

I have been given an assignment to prepare a HR DASHBOARD. i have made 2-3 times but was not approved, they are saying it must have inovation, i have seen many good dashboards on Google, but those components are not available in the xcelsius.

    Hello,

    Xcelsius 2008 is the latest available version for BOE 3.1. You may refer the document http://ftp1.businessobjects.com/webprod/cx/Xcelsius_PandL.pdf for details. Which components you are not able to find?

    You may use a few tricks to make your dashboard better

    - Go through the sample files to understand the components

    - Go through some Youtube videos for particular requirements

    - Make use of the Themes and colors to beautify your dashboard

    - Make more use of visual selector components like Fisheye picture Menu, Accordion Menu and Tab Set

    - Use dynamic visibility and drill down

    Regards,

    Hi,

    New versions may not solve your new components problem.

    The only way to satisfy their neccesity is understanding the domain.

    Instead for searching for components you find more information on HR activities.

    What type of information can help them.

    What more aspects can be made a KPIs ?

    etc etc......

    Information is the secondary aspect, when user opens a dashboard he should lured by look and feel.

    So all the components should be aligned properly and meaningfully.

    I suggest you to use Aqua.

    Drill down and segmentation of chart might help you to impress the user. Alerts are also important.

    Provide help information with the tricky pop up windiow with a close button.

    Providing a WHAT - IF Scenario would make an impact.

    Still we can discuss a lot, just let me know what information do you have based on that i can suggest you trciks and tips to make your model more impressive and suggestable.

    Regards,
