The term dashboard stands for an overview page in computer technology, and for a dashboard in automotive technology. In application programs, it is the graphical user interface on which the programs are managed.
On dashboards, programs can be managed and information can be clearly displayed. For example, widgets and other utilities. Dashboards are also suitable for the interactive management of mail accounts and their connection data or for the clear listing of business data such as sales, costs and profit. The monitoring of financial transactions, the listing of stock levels, stock outflows or production control are further examples of the use of dashboards.
Dashboards are characterized by being extremely clear and presenting as few key figures as possible. If possible, the visual representation can be supported by diagrams.
