How Does It Actually Work?

Viewers can mark their favorite widgets by starring them in any dashboard which pulls data from any data source. Once a widget is starred it will appear in the Self-Service Dashboard Setup section where the viewers can start creating their own dashboards. This way viewers are able to decide for themselves which widgets are the most important for them, and keep them together on 1 or several self-service dashboards.

 In the setup section, a viewer can start creating their dashboards and define which widget should be included in each dashboard. No need to predefine the dashboard layout in the setup, once a Self-Service dashboard is created, the viewer can drag & drop and resize the various widgets upon a highly dynamic grid which allows creating many advanced dashboard layouts.

What’s the Big Idea?

We believe that broader access to data creates better businesses. The Self-Service Dashboard can be used along with our Widget Controller to give every Sisense user the ability to create the dashboards, views, and reports that they need to be successful.

The self service dashboard can be embedded into any 3rd party application.

Step 1

Each viewer can star any widget as a favorite. (This icon and its colour can be modified)


Step 2

Once a widget has been marked as favorite, it will appear on the widget itself, for that viewer, and will appear in the Self service dashboard Config section


The Self Service Analytics section will appear in the header or where ever embedded.


Step 3

Custom Self-Service dashboards setup  - here the viewers will create new self service dashboards and select which widgets are to be added. In this page one can edit, delete or rename existing self service dashboards.


Step 4

Design and use the Self-Service dashboards. Tab between other self-service dashboards.


Add more widgets and allow the designer full independence on a highly intuitive drag and drop grid with endless possible layouts:

  • Elevate a viewers capabilities by allowing them to create their own dashboards.

  • Reduce the amount of support requests and noise from change requests.

  • Empower viewers to perform their own ad-hoc analytics.

  • Create and edit multiple Self-Service dashboards.

  • Filter the self-service dashboard using the filters from the various origin dashboards which are represented in the self-service report

  • Each widget includes a 'i' icon which provides more information on that widget.

  • A Lazy Loading mechanism allows optimised dashboards performance.

  • Use the widgets in order to filter the dashboard.

  • Combine widgets from different dashboards and from different data sources.

  • Intuitive drag and drop environment.

  • All widgets are tied back to the original dashboard, any changes done by the original designer will take into effect onto all other self service dashboards.

  • The entire set up and look and feel is completely rebrandable. It can be made to look as an integral part of the Sisense application, relabelled as your brand, or embedded into any 3rd party application as built-in Self-Service Analytics section.
