Creating Measure Dashboards

Dashboards are a powerful tool to compile the key performance indicators (KPIs) you would like to monitor for your channels and networks. Once you set up a Measure dashboard, you can return to it on a continuing basis to see the latest analytics for your channels.

Creating a dashboard

  1. In Measure, click Create Dashboard in the top-right corner.

  2. Choose one of our dashboard templates (hover over each for a brief description) or create a blank dashboard by clicking Build your own at the bottom of the list.Screenshot 2023-11-17 at 1.37.28 PM.png

  3. After choosing a template, you’ll be asked to name the new dashboard in the top left.


    If you plan on creating a number of different dashboards, name them descriptively so you can identify them easily in your dashboards lists. We recommend choosing a name that includes the brand, location, time interval, and your KPIs/objectives (e.e. "Social Media Management CPH Weekly Engagement").

  4. Check the box beside any channels or channel groups you would like to include in your dashboard.image (15).png


    Channel groups that are checked off as a whole under the Channel Groups tab are considered completely selected channel groups and all channels within that group will be added to the dashboard. If you select specific channels to add via the Channels tab and they are part of a channel group, the group will appear as a partially selected group (indicated by a dash next to the group) under the Channel Groups tab. Please note that you will only be able to filter your dashboard by any completely selected channel groups that are selected.Partially selected channel group.png

  5. Click Create Dashboard to finish.

You will be brought straight to your new dashboard to customize it. Click Add widget to begin adding your desired KPIs to your dashboard.
