Benefits of the integration

Fully customizable PPM reporting

Dashboard Hub Pro enables you to create unlimited reporting dashboards. Track any PPM data and display it your way. Progress, resource allocation, cost, priorities, and more — there are more than 100 pre-built metrics to choose from. You can even set up custom formulas.

Use line, bar, pie, and tile charts and tables to visualize your desired metrics. You also have a wide range of data aggregation options.

You can also combine multiple reports in a single dashboard. Use templates or create a dashboard from scratch to select the data points and reporting types you want to display.

You can even create dashboards for dedicated use cases and contexts. For example, make an Agile dashboard for all Agile initiatives, or a portfolio dashboard to combine and standardize data from multiple projects and programs. Group reports any way you want.

A single source of truth for all your reporting

Project teams and managers at all levels use different tools in their everyday work. Connecting Dashboard Hub Pro with BigPicture enables users to visualize progress and resource utilization data from multiple platforms in one place.

The integration creates a single source of information for all PPM-related reports.

Whether you manage waterfall, Agile, or hybrid initiatives, you have plenty of metrics and KPIs to choose from when creating custom dashboards and reports.

Quick and secure data sharing with stakeholders

Dashboard Hub Pro makes sharing reports with stakeholders easier than buying off Amazon. Send dashboards containing multiple reports in seconds.

Stakeholders don’t even need to open BigPicture. And the shared dashboards are dynamic. So, changes are reflected in the shared dashboard if your team updates data between sharing and opening. (More useful than PDF reports, which are outdated the second you create them.)

Keeping sensitive data away from unauthorized users is crucial. With Dashboard Hub Pro, you can protect dashboards with a password. And you can assign or restrict access to make sure that only designated people can view your reports.

  • BigPicture boxes: projects, programs, and portfolios in your BigPicture instance.
  • View type: the way you want to visualize the data, e.g., a chart or table type
  • Aggregation options, such as sum, mean, minimum, maximum, etc.
