Pre-built options

Our pre-built Klips and dashboards are designed in collaboration with industry experts and adhere to current best practices and trends. We focus on getting the most from your data and then presenting it in meaningful, actionable visualizations. You can use our pre-built options as a complete solution or as a starting point toward custom building.

  • Pre-built Klips: We offer hundreds of pre-built Klips for a multitude of services. Quickly set up a dashboard with our predefined visualizations that display common KPIs. Pre-built Klips are found in the Klip Gallery or, for White Label customers, in the Integration Gallery .
  • Pre-built dashboards are an effective way to quickly gather thematically-related Klips into a single, purposeful dashboard. Find them in the Dashboard Gallery.

Custom building

Sometimes our pre-builts don’t quite match your needs. That means it’s time to do some building of your own! Taking the time to learn how to create your own Klips and dashboards unleashes your data and empowers you to control, manipulate, and transform it, leading you to unprecedented insights into your business.

  • Custom Klips: Build a Klip from scratch (or edit an existing Klip) in the Klip Editor. Slice and dice a data set to suit your needs, transform your data using Excel-like formulas, functions, and logic, and combine data sources and data formats to build more accurate KPIs.
  • Custom dashboards: It's quick to build your own dashboards. Just add Klips and choose your layout and theme (light or dark). You can also customize a dashboard with your own logo.
