What makes a good Home?

The Home is the first thing your users will see. Sometimes, it can also be the only thing theyโ€™ll have time to see.

Imagine your manager going into a meeting and in the elevator, wanting to see the latest numbers.

Think of the top indicators that will make your user a rock star in any situation.

Here are a few tips for you to keep in mind when building a home page:

  • Understand your userโ€™s needs before you start

  • A home page is not exhaustive, it can change and be updated

  • Choose meaningful indicators that tell a story

  • One indicator = one message

Title

Would you read a book without a title?

Give your home a title in a few clicks. Let your users know what this is all about.

  • Are you doing some โ€œRetail monitoringโ€, or some โ€œBrand managementโ€?

Categories

To be readable and understandable by all, your home page should be organized.

Use categories as a reading grid to help your users better navigate through all the indicators at their disposal.

Tiles

What is a Tile?

A tile is a small card containing data you want to display. See it as a mini viz with limited options that will be displayed on the home page.

Tiles are not only diagrams but can also be media or editorial content like text, images, or videos.

Why limited options?

Several indicators are presented on the homepage. As a consequence, the homepage needs to be as clear and concise as possible to catch the userโ€™s attention. Therefore, you cannot use regular charts that require more space here like you would in stories. Weโ€™ve crafted a set of small visualizations specially designed to be overseen and yet understood in a glimpse: weโ€™ve called them tiles.

Tiles are much more limited than regular charts to make sure you keep your home as lightweight as possible.

Filters

Filters allow you to make your Home and your App totally dynamic! A single user can use them to zoom or drill within indicators based on dimensions such as Dates or entities such as Country, Product Line, and so on.
