Dashboard design considerations

 

A large part of effective dashboard design is managing the number of Klips per dashboard, the number of dashboards per account, the number of data sources associated with a formula and the number of API calls per second and day. The following parameters are key considerations when designing and managing your Klipfolio dashboard.

 

Number of dashboards on your account: You can have up to 60 dashboards on your account open at any point in time. However, the more dashboards you have open the more the readability of your dashboard names will be diminished. For this reason, we recommend keeping a much smaller set of dashboards open, not exceeding 30 to optimize the usability of your account and the ability of users to view and find dashboards.

 

Number of Klips per dashboard: Each dashboard can contain up to 30 Klips. Keep in mind that more than 15 Klips on a dashboard results in the need to scroll to find and view the ones you want. Another consideration is how many Klips per dashboard can be seen if you are using a wall display.

 

Number of data sources per formula: Formulas can use up to 12 data sources. A benefit of using Klipfolio is the app’s ability to combine data sources in a single Klip. While we actively encourage this, we recognize that customers are also interested in the performance of their formulas and want to ensure users can access their data quickly. More data sources will be a contributing factor to slower performance for a Klip. This refers to the number of unique data sources per formula. Your Klip may have many formulas and could potentially have many more associated data sources.

 

Number of API calls per second: Klipfolio supports up to five requests per second. If you exceed this limit, any request you send will return a 429 Too Many Requests error with an appropriate message.

 

Number of API calls per day: Check your payment plan to determine the number of API calls available for your account. Daily counts start at 12:00 am ET. If your application requires more than the current limit, please contact sales@klipfolio.com. If you exceed this limit, any request you send will return a 429 Too Many Requests error with an appropriate message.

 

If you have questions about these limits, please contact support@klipfolio.com.
