I'm beginning to toy with the gkpi proc in EG via the DLL that's available on the SAS website. Have successfully created KPI dials and am now in the process of creating reports that use these dials and other graphs. The modify report functionality seems to be a bit stiff. Meaning, the grid into which reports are placed doesn't seem to resize very smartly when run and doesn't have much flexibility in terms of layout. If dials are small, a significant amount of real estate seems to be used anyway.
Has anyone else found this to be true as well, or am I not leveraging the tool's full capabilities? Any best practices out there for creating visually appealing dashboards through EG?

If your goal is to create HTML-formatted dashboards and you don't mind using code, you might look at tagsets.htmlpanel or ODS LAYOUT. Both are documented in the "BASE SAS" focus area: http://support.sas.com/rnd/base/ods/
