SuiteApp: Dashboard Tiles Enhancements

Updated: Jul 1, 2021

Dashboard Tiles is a feature that allows users to create a dashboard with tiles/tables which display the business critical KPIs in a distinctive visual layout with additional images and blinking alerts. The alert serves as a reminder of metrics that may or may not achieve certain conditions. The configuration will allow the user to set content display based on user or company preference.

According to the suitability of displaying types of data, here are three tile types that you can create and customize:

  • Static

A static tile displays a static value. Examples of static values are percentage rate and target amount. You can use a SuiteScript to update the value for handling complex metrics that may require more than one saved search.

  • Reminder

Tiles that display numeric data derived from a saved search. The values displayed in a reminder tile are based on the number of results as specified in the saved search record.

  • Scorecard

A scorecard tile displays the sum of the values in the first available numeric column of a saved search. Numeric columns can contain currencies, integers, floats, or decimals.

Dashboard Tiles can only be accessed through Administrator Role. For other roles, contact your administrator.
