5 Must Dos BEFORE Creating Dashboards

In the world of data visualization, a lot of focus is paid to the visualization tools themselves. Should I use a time-series visual, a scatter plot, or a heat map? What is the best way to visualize survey data? Can I export my dashboard to a PDF?

Perhaps you want to know how sales and marketing activities affect other channels of engagement such as the web. Unfortunately, the tools necessary for these queries are not easily within the grasp of most business users.
