Dashboards are the main component of Plecto. They are built from widgets that you can simply drag and drop onto the dashboard.

The widgets define what data is shown by adding formulas and the time periods on the widgets.


Choose from a variety of widgets, and you can design the layout of the dashboard. This is where you can fully utilise your creative skills and personalise your dashboards!

Tip: We generally recommend that you import your data to Plecto first, from which you create dashboards and widgets.

The creation and general configuration of dashboards is described in this support article: Create a Dashboard.
