Mobile Dashboards



Dashboards that look great on desktop computers might not always scale particularly well to mobile screens. To provide your users with a great experience while viewing and interacting with your dashboard on mobile devices, you can easily design an existing dashboard in our mobile mode.


Example of datapine's mobile dashboards


The mobile mode helps you to visualize what your dashboard will look like on a mobile device, and lets you adjust them to your own design. You can also choose not to include certain charts or graphs if you personally think they are not necessary on the mobile screen. We would suggest not to include all information from your dashboard into the mobile display as the smaller screen can become easily overloaded.


This section will show you how to create and edit dashboards in mobile mode and guide you through the interface of mobile mode dashboards.


To view and access your mobile dashboards you may either use the browser on your mobile device or download the datapine app:

1.) Create Dashboard in Mobile Mode


In this section we will show you how to create your dashboard for a mobile device. Creating a mobile dashboard is as easy as building your dashboard on a desktop computer or laptop screen.


Any of your existing dashboards can be converted to fit a mobile version, the one prerequisite is that your dashboard has first been created in a desktop version. Whilst building your dashboard for mobile mode, always keep in mind not to overload the mobile mode dashboard with too much information while still displaying the most important information. In this way, you will provide your users with a great small-screen experience.

2.) Edit Dashboard in Mobile Mode


After you have set up your dashboard in mobile mode, you may wish to edit the dashboard elements. Editing textboxes, icons, numbers, and graphs in mobile mode is just as easy as in the standard dashboard mode.


In this section we will show you how to redesign the dashboard layout, adjust the element style and size, and how to copy format. To ensure that your live dashboard in the standard desktop screen isn’t interrupted by the changes you are making in mobile mode, all the changes made will only affect the mobile mode dashboard.

3.) Filter in Mobile Mode


In the same way that you can use filters in your dashboard in the standard dashboard, you can also use them in your mobile mode dashboard.


Unlike in the standard dashboard view, where filters can be integrated directly onto the dashboard as a list or drop-down, on a mobile device the filters are displayed in a separate section. Additionally, the default time filter that is found in the desktop version of your dashboard will be replaced with the Time Picker on a mobile device. The Time Picker will be displayed in the toolbar above the dashboard, this helps you compare your data and KPI performance with that of other time frames. The time frames that you wish to compare must be set in the mobile mode in the datapine desktop version.

4.) Using Mobile Mode Dashboards


In datapine the user interface for Dashboards in mobile mode is adapted to a small screen size and therefore different to that on your computer.


In this section we guide you through the user interface in mobile mode and show you how drilldowns and quick filters work on a mobile device. We will also show you how to send your mobile mode dashboards via email.
