As a Geckoboard user, I wanted to share this tip as I think it’s a super-handy way to make sure the team can access key metrics throughout the day, even if your team is fully or partially distributed.
Full disclosure, I work at Geckoboard as the Tester, and I’d like to share this. Truth is I’ve always wanted to embed key metrics in a place where I know everyone can see them (many times a day).
What is the challenge or problem this resolves?
Communicating key metrics to everyone in a fully-distributed team.
What is your solution?
Embedding a live metrics dashboard in monday.com.
Normally we have this up on a TV in the office, but given we’re all remote now, I’ve found a way to embed it inside monday.com. Now the team can quickly see the metrics we care about.
These are the important steps to do this:
Create a monday.com dashboard
To add the Embed Everything Widget to your dashboard, just click ‘+ Add Widget’ at the top left corner of your dashboard and click ‘More’ to launch the Dashboards Center.
From the Dashboards Center, select “Embed Everything”, which you’ll find under the “Media” category, or use the search bar like this:
Paste the Geckoboard sharing url into the field in the right pane of the Embed Everything Widget right here:
and your Geckoboard dashboard is displayed:
