A few weeks ago, David Cummings wrote about the new trend of startups displaying performance dashboards on their in-office TV’s.
We implemented our most comprehensive dashboard last week. Since there was not a single website that would include all the metrics I was looking to report on, I went hunting for a solution in the Chrome store.
I found a neat little app called Tab Slideshow. This allows you to auto-cycle through tabs on your browser.
We plugged in our $60 Raspberry Pi, pulled up Chromium and ran the following sites:
- Pardot inbound lead dashboard
- Trello Development activity board
- Twitter real-time mentions stream
It displays the first page then rotates to the next one after 35 seconds.
Next week, we’ll add a graph of our product users and as we get more established, we’ll run salesforce.com calls, demos and closed deals dashboards on the display.
We found using multiple sites and rotating with Tab Slideshow to be a solid way to do office dashboards. Have you seen any other neat ways to do this?
