Designing dashboards with eXpressTransit is quick and easy with the eXpressTransit dashboard designer. When adding a new dashboard, you begin with a blank canvas and a toolbox of components that can be placed onto the canvas using drag and drop. As each component is moved over the canvas, guidelines appear indicating where the component will be positioned once it is dropped. Once dropped, components can easily be resized, repositioned, grouped into tabs or removed. An unlimited number of components can be placed onto the canvas and further refined depending on the type of component it is. The current types of componenets provided for designing dashboards include:
- 2D and 3D Pie Charts
- Pivot Grid With Chart
- Web Browser
- Stock Chart
- Data List
- 2D Bullet Chart
- X-Y Composite Chart
- Empty Space Item

After saving the layout and assigning permissions, we can furter refine each componenet on the new dashboard. In a matter of minutes, a complete dashboard can be designed which will consistently reflect the lates values of the KPIs it displays.
