The Syncfusion Dashboard Designer application lets you connect to data and visualize them as dashboards using data visualization and filter widgets. The composed dashboard can then be published to the dashboard server for sharing from within the designer application itself.

Key features

Wide variety of data sources: Connects file based data sources such as, Microsoft Excel, CSV, and JSON or server based data sources such as SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), Azure Analysis Services, PostgreSQL, SQLite, ODBC Connection (MySQL, Oracle and Access), Microsoft Azure Table Storage, Salesforce, Hive and Spark SQL, or RESTful web services through the Web Data Source.

Common ODBC (ANSI SQL): Connects to wide range of databases that inherit the ANSI SQL 92 standard through their ODBC drivers.

Built-in Simple ETL: You can combine multiple tables in a structured database or an excel workbook to generate a de-normalized virtual data table, which suits for visualization as dashboards.

Rich selection of widgets: All the widgets commonly used in business dashboards including a variety of charts, gauges, maps, treemaps, and grids have been included. You may also include your own HTML5 and JavaScript based custom widgets to dashboard using a few steps.

Tabbed view of dashboards: Showcases multiple dashboards in one page through the tabbed view.

Scrollable canvas with half-sized widgets: Add widgets with various sizes beyond the last row to accommodate more widgets in a scrollable view.

Seamless integration with the Dashboard Server: You can create, publish, and import dashboards, data sources, and widgets to the Dashboard Server within the designer application.

SQL Server Impersonation within domain: Under Windows authentication mode, user accounts imported from Active Directory to Dashboard Server will impersonate as Dashboard Server user to communicate with SQL Server instance.

Dynamic Parameters: Add parameters for custom queries or stored procedures and dynamically change the parameter values in the Dashboard Viewer. Parameters can also be used in expressions and can be mapped for user-based filters.

User based filtering: Shows different data based on users permissions.

Dedicated filter panel: Allows you to save space for visualization and show filter elements in a dedicated shelf that can be collapsed. Wide range of filter elements such as combo box, date picker, range slider, list box, checkbox, and radio button can be used here.

Integration with Syncfusion Data Integration Platform: Creates a dashboard data source from Data Integration Platform data flows using the server explorer in the Dashboard Designer.
