Building Custom Dashboards

Build a personalized view of your top-of-mind insights.

Keep an eye on the KPIs, metrics, and insights that are most important for you! Custom Dashboards allow you to build multiple views of your saved reports. You can add any Explorer, Attrition, Compensation, or Employee List report to your dashboards.

A few things to note:

  • Full & Restricted users will have the ability to create their own custom dashboards
  • This feature is currently in BYO (build-your-own) mode, meaning you will not be able to share your views with other users.

Each dashboard can serve a different purpose. Create department-specific views as well as deep cuts into trends like attrition and DEI.

The best way to navigate to existing dashboards within your Knoetic account is the dashboard directory on the left-hand side of the page.

Open My Dashboards -> Hover over the minimized sidebar to access all your dashboards.

Creating a new dashboard

On the My Dashboards page, click "+ New Dashboard" at the top of the left side directory. The new untitled dashboard will be created immediately.

And let's make sure to name your dashboard, too! Simply click the edit icon to the left of the title, type in a name, and click save.

Add new or existing saved reports

You can add your own saved reports, or add saved reports created by other teammates.

  • Starting from any dashboard, add a report by clicking the "Add" button near the top right of the dashboard.
  • If the dashboard is empty, click the button in the center of the page. This will open a popup from which you can choose to add an existing report.
  • Supported reports include Explorer, Attrition, Compensation, and Employee List (Employees).
  • You can search by keywords and report types, then add one or multiple reports to the dashboard.

Change the format or report order

Rearrange or resize report visuals with our simple drag-and-drop capability.

  • To change the order of your reports, simply drag any report visual to your desired position.
  • To remove a report, click the three dots on the top right-hand side and select "Remove".

A few things to keep in mind:

  • You can fit anywhere from 1 to 3 report visualizations within a row
  • Add or drag a report to its own line to dedicate more real estate to it
  • To change a graph's visual format (e.g. bar graph vs. line graph vs. pie chart), click on the report title to edit the original report. Save your changes and see them reflected on your dashboard automatically.
