Best Practices Event Dashboard

Following our best practices for dashboard’s principles, when setting up the following visualizations in a Power BI dashboard, we will arrange the aggregate data to be shown at the top, a time series analysis in the middle, and a widget for drilling down to the granular data at the bottom.

To learn how to build this dashboard, you can watch this video from our YouTube channel:


Step 1: First, create a KPI widget by selecting it from the visualizations menu.

Step 2: Search and select the value and goal of ‘Average Duration of Events’

Step 3: To look at those by month, we’ll select ‘Month’ as our trend


Step 4: Select a ‘Card’ widget from the visualizations menu

Step 5: Search for and select ‘Events Critical’

Multi-row Card

Step 6: Next, we’ll use a multi-row card to draw out a few culminations of data at once. Select ‘Multi-row card’

Step 7: In the ‘Event Counts’ folder, select ‘Events Closed’

Step 8: Select ‘Event Total’

Step 9: Select ‘Percentage of events closed’


Step 10: Create a KPI by selecting it from the visualizations menu. Search for and select the value and goal of ‘Percentage of Events Critical’

Step 11: Add ‘Quarter of Year’ to the widget

Multi-row Card

Step 12: Select a ‘Clustered Column’ widget and search for and select the ‘Events Total’ count

 Step 13: Since this is our time series element of the dashboard, we’ll look at it by month. Search for and select the calendar date ‘Month’. Remember that if you want a time series that can be manipulated while in the dashboard, you can add a slicer


Step 14: Lastly, we’ll add a table for the granular view. Select ‘Table’ from the visualizations menu

Step 15: Add all the items under the ‘Classifications’ folder

Step 16: Add ‘MC Relations’ and you’re finished with the dashboard.
