One Little Change; So Much Clearer Dashboards

with 6 comments

I discovered a quick little tweak you can make to reports so you can help rid the world of a blight known as “Record Count”. When you look at a Dashboard component about “Contacts created last week”, why do we make the reader interpret “Record Count” to mean Contacts? I know it’s implied by nature of the report, but just this one little tweak can make information so much clearer. I add this to my reports all the time now and it’s really helpful. Check out the demo video and help rid the world of that dreaded “Record Count”.
