Every business is unique, their KPIs oftentimes vastly different from other companies in the same industry. With Leftronic, there’s no such thing as generic business dashboards. Although the app provides built-in templates to speed up the dashboard creation process, the look and feel of your dashboard, including the KPIs you want tracked, are entirely up to you.
For example, a Twitter Engagement dashboard can contain Twitter mentions for several different domains. You can also choose to make it more comprehensive, such as cover just one domain but include metrics for following count, follower count, tweet count, number of favorites, mentions, retweets, replies, and more. You’re free to customize every single dashboard in your account to your heart’s content.
Leftronic dashboards monitor data from every facet of your business in real time. Updates about closed sales, lost opportunities, marketing campaigns, the traffic your website generates, how your app servers are performing can be viewed from a single, centralized hub. This allows you to make immediate and relevant business decisions as events occur, not after waiting for a manual report when serious problems could already have started happening.
This is particularly useful for IT teams as they strive to keep company servers in tiptop shape by being able to spot and address issues before they escalate into emergency situations, e.g., server downtimes. For marketing teams monitoring social media campaigns, the use of currently trending hashtags may drastically extend your content's reach.
And because you can't possibly be looking at your dashboards 24/7, Leftronic has an email alert functionality on number widgets. For example, system administrators get a notification when potentially untoward occurrences happen, such as when your load balancer reaches unhealthy thresholds. When your social media likes/follows exceed your targets, you can get an email alert as well.
Leftronic dashboards can be shared with others, including your boss and other higher-ups, either as snapshots from within the app or as view-only public URLs that automatically refresh as data is updated. To share a dashboard snapshot by email, on the upper right-hand side of the dashboard editor, click on the Share icon for the Email Dashboard Snapshot window to appear. Enter your recipients’ email addresses, include a message, and click Send. Snapshot schedules can also be created so you can periodically send out dashboard snapshots automatically.
To share URLs without divulging your Leftronic credentials, click on Dashboard Settings under the Settings menu. Tick the “share link for current dashboard” check box, and a URL will automatically be generated. A password is optional.
While dashboards can be shared with anyone in your team, Leftronic lets you manage multiple users and control their access to dashboards and service authentications. This ensures the amount of data you share with everyone, including how they use it, corresponds to their job functions.
Leftronic offers users the freedom to customize their dashboards as they deem necessary. From the Settings menu on the upper right side of your screen, just below your name, the following options are available: Dashboard Settings, Dashboard Collections, Basic Styling, Advanced Styling, Authentications, Alerts, IP Whitelisting, and User Management.
Aside from generating links for the dashboards you intend to share, Dashboard Settings is where you enter your password to decrypt encrypted data, rename, copy, and clear the contents of the current dashboard. Basic Styling allows you to upload a logo image URL, change your dashboards’ color theme, and hide/unhide the dashboard header/footer in display mode, while Advanced Styling contains an edit screen where you can enter your custom CSS. Alerts is where you create new alerts or view existing ones.
