I suggest this Microsoft Power BI Webinar. It’s fee and I think it’s very interesting. In this presentation, Miguel Myers will teach you the difference between reports, indicators/gauges, presentations, dashboards, and infographics; including how you can take advantage of each one and how you can design them using Power BI.
I find it very useful its 10 rules to create a perfect Dahsboard :
- Drawn a Skecth: not start from what i have and the graph but wath i want, what kind of information i want to represent? to who? Think about data and visual.
- Use Alwasy a grid: insert a grid image below all visual. That simplify where i put my visual, text and image.
- Use a correct Alignment: It is very important to align the objects between them. Grid simplify it.
- Approriate Spacing: Where it’s possible insert the proper space between the differente object, the best is that always be the same.
- Select The correct Backgroud: Color too birght or dark can be a distraction to user, rember to combine you background color with you visual colors.
- Use the Right visualization: Select the correct Visual, what data source you have? you want to compare some data or show a specific number?
- Not Use many effects and Contet
- Use Empty Space Wisely: sometimes the better solution is to use a empty space
- Chose the correct color:
- IF select Similar color max 3 different colors (example blu, violet, light blue)
- If select DIfferent kind of color: max 3 colors (example red, blue, yellow)
- If select same color but different tone: max 5 different tones
- Enchace the important parts of page: with color or images.
