New data structure on dashboards (Testing Available - Apply within!)

We’ve improved dashboards (hurray!) :muscle:

We’ve been working hard to improve the performance and speed of the dashboards to provide you with a much smoother experience.

You can now add boards to the dashboards , not per widget: Now if you add boards to your dashboard, all of your widgets will use them!

Coming soon:

The first step in creating Dashboard Filters! Want to see this week’s charts across all widgets? You can now easily filter it from the dashboard top bar.

This structure will allow you to more easily build your dashboards, filter from anywhere, will provide you with a faster dashboards experience and much more!

To add this to your account please contact support@monday.com! We would love to have you test it and receive your feedbacks!

Awesome! I sent an email to ask to beta it.

I really wish I had a formula widget on dashboards while we’re on the topic!

I sent email. But it would be helpful for others if you could post some screenshots of what we are signing up for.

Agreed. I don’t want to sign up if it’ll break existing dashboards and confuse people.

I contacted support, and the support team had no idea what i was talking about. They asked me if i was referring to workspaces. :sweat_smile: Had to share the link to this thread to them haha.

As a customer, I feel frustrated that the Monday team seems to be incredibly disjointed, as if each team is working in silos, independent of one another. Love the product, but the management leaves me wanting more.

@Danielle-monday.com this change to the dashboard data structure is excellent! By allowing advanced filtering in a dashboard that combines multiple boards in a single table widget, it has removed a major obstacle to easy, customizable data visibility.

[EDIT] Whoops - I spoke too soon… Looks like the advanced filter parameters still need to be set for each board added to a widget. I’m really hoping the filter can be set and applied across all boards on a widget. Is that in the works?

My question / request: are there plans to also add other standard board functionality to the table widget, such as freezing columns and hidden columns? That would ice this improvement cake for us! Thanks.

Thanks Monday for granting me access to the new structure of the dashboards. I must say that the performance of the new structure is much much better than the previous dashboard. It feels really ‘snappy’ and fast.

I also like the new UI on adding board per dashboard, not per widget. This totally makes sense and saves time while building dashboards.

So after a quick view I am impressed by the update. Well done! This is really a big step forward for dashboard users.

Offcourse there are wishes for improvements, here they are:

  1. Being able to move dashboard into workspaces or folders.
  2. Being able to add more then then boards to a dashboard.
  3. Being able to create a variation on the bettery widget: give it the ability to show the statuses vs the amount of items over time (burndown chart-like functionality, see also Burndown charts)
  4. Give the ability to plot data in widgets listening to timeline. So plot data within a timeframe of x weeks
