TWIPLA and TUM: How All Our Users Benefit:

Custom Dashboards Created As Part of Partnership

This TWIPLA showcase has benefits for all our users. TUM asked for the dashboard to display custom report blocks, and we're always happy to develop features for clients. This tool is now live, and enables users to customize our platform to the requirements of their business. It gives them the following functionality:

  • Create any number of report panels from 43 default blocks.
  • Add, more, remove, or delete report blocks at will.
  • Activate any filter that is available for each block.
  • Name the custom dashboard for ease of reference.

Crucially, website owners can also control which contributors have access to each custom dashboard. This enables businesses to restrict access to sensitive website data, and to show employees, IT workers, clients, and agencies only what they want them to see. It speeds up collaborations, while enhancing data ownership.
