Website Status Reporting Dashboard Screenshot – tracking real-time website activity

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 10:48 am

Thanks to some Dashboard Spies inside Microsoft, we have this dashboard screenshot of how they monitored an MS Events website back in 2004. As the online event occurred and users navigated the website, marketing managers were able to monitor the usage statistics in real-time. Of note is the unusual "half circle" look of the charts that show user registration data. Also, the dashboard tracks survey results as they come in. If you need to monitor the pulse of your users in real-time, this is the way to go. Maybe suitable for poliltical polls? In my opinion, it's a little bit of an overkill for a marketing event. Take a look:

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.

  1. Hello Dashboard Spy. I enjoy your blog about financial dashboards and marketing dashboards. It is good to see such information. I have been studying this topic for many months now and am glad to see so many examples. I will visit your site often.

    I was very interested in seeing your post about “KPI Requirements for Dashboard Projects – Using the KPI dashboards”. Thank you for the information about this dashboard topic. There is a dashboard project at work about this subject.

    The dashboards graphic is very nice. I like the colors and the questions are very interesting – What Question? Who’s Asking, Why is it Important, etc. I think it is very good. I also like the layout of the screen. I have a question about the boxes on the right side. Is the user supposed to type the answers to the questions into the boxes?
