acumatica 2021 r1 highlight new widgets to dashboardsAcumatica has now released its first of two bi-annual releases. One of the new usability enhancements in 2021 R1 are new visual tiles to dashboards. The additional tiles are meant to increase the sharing of important business intelligence across an organization. 

 

The new tiles offer a better way of visualizing departmental activities and performance but also to launch into other important daily activities. Acumatica refers to these as “Link Tiles” (see figure 1). Link tiles are intended to help visualize data and provide direct links to important activities and reports right from the dashboard.

Another type of link tiles that have been added to dashboards are “meter tiles” (see figure 2). These tiles provide easy to read visuals on gauging how departments are meeting specific deadlines, goals, quotas, etc.

Not only can you use an absolute value for setting conditions for the meter tiles you can also use inquiry fields or percent values (see figure 3).

In 2021 R1 with the information contained in the meter tiles, you can share it across an organization by simply copying the dashboard tile (See figure 4). acumatica 2021 r1 highlight new widgets to dashboards 5

The next step is to navigate to another dashboard and simply paste it to other dashboards with one click —i.e., another employee dashboard, management dashboard, executive dashboard etc. (See Figure 5)
