Great question! “Dashboards” have become quite popular over the last year or so. Basically a dashboard is a summary of multiple reports into an easy to read table, chart, graph, or single number.
To make one will take a minimum of in-depth Excel knowledge (IF and Lookup formulas, pivot tables, charting, etc), but for more advanced and cross system dashboards (one that shows data from land and accounting that are tracked in different systems, for example) may require more database (SQL Server, Oracle, and others) knowledge. And then to be able to have a dynamic dashboard that is accessible online will require some programming or development.
When creating dashboards there are a lot of questions to ask: What do I want to know? Where is this data stored? How many details do I want to see? How do I get these answers? How do I want it displayed? How often does it need to be updated? The list could go a little longer depending on your specific project.
Because of these new challenges some companies opt to have dashboards created for them by a specialist. Some more details along those lines can be found at https://pandplandservice.com/services/reports-dashboards/.
