Hello Everyone,


Please I need help on how best to design a dashboard on SAS VA for some data quality stuff. Thanks

Ok, you put too much details, it's easy to get lost 😶

My recommendations in a general sense are:

  • have in mind that you can use different data tables within the same report, 2 objects on the same page can point to different data tables
  • I've been into trouble many times because I developped a report for dynamic usage playing wioth filters and hierarchies but the report user wanted more a static pdf alike printout
  • use rules to apply consistent colors to important levels of a class variable, like the make of a car
  • use the rank functionalilty as it's a way to concentrate on the top x levels. greetings from pareto
  • link obejcts with each other
  • Do not overuse list items, I use them only for control of detail data. If your report consists of mant list items better stick to excel
  • the containers (like prompt or precision) do a good job to achieve a clean layout
  • use parameters for dynamic reports
  • my favourite objects apart for the basic ones are treemap and parallel lines

Without more detail I cannot be more specific.
