QAD BI Portal Overview and Navigation > BI Portal Dashboard
BI Portal Dashboard
The dashboard, which is the front page view for the data warehouse analysis, is the first screen the system displays when you log in.
The dashboard is a collection of visual items that gives a snapshot view of the current business state; for example, a sales dashboard that shows the current sales figures for each product. The dashboard can be fully customized so that you see information in a quick, easily analyzed format, which allows for better and more informed decision making.
