🆕 Dashboard apps - public beta

Tape’s community has dreamed up all kinds of ways they want to use dashboards. Some imagine it as the first thing they see when they click on a workspace, helping them visualize company goals. Others want special reports just for the bosses. There have been so many ideas!

We realized we didn’t know all the ways you might use a dashboard. So, we decided to make them as customizable as possible. But don’t worry, we kept it simple, we didn’t want to make things complicated or slow to set up.

Now - we’re super happy that every dashboard in Tape is a blank sheet of paper, a canvas. You can add different building blocks, such as text, images, reports, and more. It works as simply as any word processor, only you can add many different types of blocks, and move and modify them in new ways.


:checkered_flag: It’s time to use Tape’s new dashboard apps.

Hi @agnes.farias,

we don’t have a concrete timeline yet. But I think when we have fixed the reported bugs from the private beta and have done a final QA loop ourselves, we will go into a public beta in the next step and make it available to everyone.

Cheers
Leo

For me, dashboards only make sense if they can display live data, so I’m experimenting with imagecharts.

You could embed an image via URL that then displays the chart:

Two links to experiment with:

To get this to work easily, there should be an update automation for the image tile.

However, a workaround could look like this:

  1. Generate a Chart image and save it in e.g. Google Drive
  2. Add the shared image link to the Tape Dashboard.
  3. build a workflow that updates the chart and updates the version of the image saved in the Drive.
  4. Tape should now display the current image, as the URL has not changed.

Hi @Roman,

great approach to display live data in the dashboards even before the reports are released!
We haven’t even thought of that yet!

Best regards and thanks for the great idea
Leo
