Create Custom Dashboards To Monitor Your Business With Geckoboard

Getting various analysis tools in one place from across numerous services can be quite convenient in analyzing real-time stats that affect your business. However, seldom do we come across a web service that offers such advanced integration. Geckoboard is a web service which brings together analytical tools from numerous websites and allows end users to add them to custom Dashboards. Acquiring important business related stats from such Dashboards is easier than viewing reports in other formats, such as in the form of an Excel sheets or a PowerPoint presentation.

Using Geckoboard you can connect various online accounts from services such as Google Analytics, Gmail, Basecamp, Pingdom, Zendesk, Twitter, FourSquare and the like. These connected accounts can be used to add widgets containing stats displaying important data for your business. In case you are confused about how such widgets might benefit your business, you can view the Live Dashboard available at the developer’s website (from the Features section).


To get started, sign up for a new account and login to Geckboard. After you login, you will be provided with a Dashboard where you can add widgets. To add a widget, select the Add Widget option.


This will take you to a page from where you can select widgets to add to your Dashboard. This way, you can create various Dashboards containing specific widgets to keep an eye on important business stats. For example, you can connect the Google Analytics widget to keep an eye on your website traffic and also add a 360 Degree completion status pie chart widget to see the status of the 360 Degree feedback collected from company employees.
