◆ Overview of dashboard layout

A Keshif dashboard can include up to four charting panels for various aggregated charts, a record chart panel, and an attribute panel (for authoring).

Using data status panel

Data status panel allows easy and accurate interpretation of visual analytics across the full dashboard. It is positioned on the top of the dashboard.

Record chart panel

The record charts itemize each record (row) in a dataset individually, and visualize the data as a list, map, scatter plot, or time-series chart. The record chart is positioned on the middle section of the dashboard.

Aggregate chart panels

Aggregate chart panels can include multiple charts, stacked vertically. The four aggregate chart panels are positioned on the left, right, below, and the full-width bottom parts compared to the record chart. 

Attribute panel

The attribute panel includes an organized list of all data attributes (variables/ columns) in a dataset. It appears on the left-most side of the dashboard, and is available in Author dashboard mode only.

Using the record details window

The record details window shows the details of a selected record. It's positioned in the middle of the dashboard, on top of all other dashboards, to enhance the focus on the record.

Adjusting dashboard layout

You can close a chart in a dashboard to create more space, or to open it show more data across more charts, and adjust the panel (chart) widths.

Changing dashboard mode

Explore, Author, Adjust and Print. Select appropriate dashboard mode for your purpose.

Special Features

  • Dashboard layout is dynamically adjusted based on the width of the browser window.
  • The middle panel, including record chart panel, extends over the remaining dashboard width, from the width of left and right panels combined. While this increases responsiveness of the design, you cannot control the width size in pixels for the record chart panel for all display configurations.
  • The height of the charts are dynamically calculated. The charts are presented in a stacked way within each panel.
    • If the panel height is not tall enough to show all charts within, some charts may be forced-closed by Keshif layout engine.
