Today I released a new version which changed the dashboard. Before the change I noticed that I myself basically never really looked at the dashboard. So obviously what was displayed on it wasn't really important to me.
So I knew I had to change something and the aim was clear: I need a dashboard that is showing information which is important enough for me to want to look at it.
So I came up with a few ideas and I soon realized I also wanted users to be more engaged with the app.
So here is what I came up with:
I added the possibility to add targets for your working hours, income and new customers.
Users will see their progress in reaching all these targets directly on the dashboard.
To drive up engagement, I also added a "Success Indicator" which shows you how you are doing in just one number.
Finally I added the possibility to share the achievements directly from the dashboard. It will create a screenshot of all your dashboard graphs that you can share however you like. To make that data shareable you only see the achievement reached in % so if a user wants to share this, s/he doesn't share his financial data or stuff like this by accident.
I really hope that this is a step in the right direction, let's see.
