Create a Dashboard Using Data from AnythingDB

With this solution you can see the Data how you want, where you want, and fast enough to act quickly.

This tool is powered by Altair Panopticon and supports a wide range of information visualizations, including our well-known Treemaps, Heat Maps, Scatter Plots, Horizon Graphs, and a wide range of other great visualizations designed for fast comprehension and easy interpretation of static, time series, real-time streaming, and historic data sets.
Important: To visualize data stored at the Property History section in AnythingDB, or the data stored in a Category, you will first need to create an app. If not, skip Step 1 and begin at Step 2.
  1. From the left menu, click Real Time Visualization > Workbooks.
  2. Select the desired folder. By default, a root folder with your username is already present.
  3. Click New Workbook.

  4. Name the Workbook and click Create.
  5. Create a Data Table by clicking the + icon.
    Data tables define the queries and source data repository definitions, in order to retrieve data.
