QuickReports module is one of the most interesting BaccS features. It allows to create nice looking information panels using different types of elements: tables, pivot grids, charts, scatter charts, pie charts, gauges, cards, treemaps, choropleth maps, geopoint maps and images. Here is very simple example of the dashboard you can create using this module:
Another, different example (with map, cards, pivot table with applied conditional formatting rules, range filter, pie chart, gauges):
Dashboard module allows to get and combine data from different tables. This allows, for example, to put information about jobs, assignments and invoices into one large panel, presenting essential data on one screen. One of highlights of this Dashboard module is a catchy design of the resulting view.
You can export any individual element of a QuickReport, or the whole QuickReport. To export individual element, right click on it and select Export to PDF, Export to Image or Export to Excel options. To export the whole QuickReport, right click on any place on a QuickReport, select Export dashboard and then select desired format. When exporting to Excel, a separate sheet will be created for each QuickReport element.
To access Dashboard module, select Reports section in the navigation tree, and then select Dashboards. By default, you will see empty list. As with other data in BaccS, click New to create a new dashboard. This means that you may have any number of dashboards, intended for different situations. For example, you may create dashboards for project managers, executive managers, finance department, etc. Upon creating new dashboard, you will see Data source wizard to select Data type. This will be just only the first source of data for the created dashboard. Later you will be able to add new sources. Select Translation job, for example. Close the wizard, and you will see the following empty workplace:
To add new elements to the workplace, use corresponding buttons on the ribbon. In the nested articles all those elements are described in detail.
