Dashboard Ideas

Use the home page of Arena, or any other page to provide organization wide or ministry specific information. While the opportunities are vast, security can be set so that specific staff have access to specific information. The following are some examples, using the available modules.

This is an example of using the 2-Dock Container module with two separate Report Grid from Query modules to display specific information and statistics. 

This example uses the Dock-3 Container module, Pages as Tab module and the Report Viewer module to organize reports by ministry. You can apply security to each tab so that staff can access the specific reports based on area of ministry.

This example uses the 3-dock container module and several of the Social modules to provide individual information.

This example uses the Advanced HTML module and Hyperlink Manager within the module to create links to documents. 

This example uses the Chart from Query module using a Stored Procedure SQL query to display a Pie Chart.  The query is required to return a single table with x_value (text value), and y_value (numeric value).

Example Chart SQL:

CREATE PROC cust_a91114_chart_members AS


SELECT  L.lookup_value AS [x_value], COUNT(P.person_id) AS [y_value]

FROM    dbo.core_person P

INNER JOIN dbo.core_lookup L ON P.member_status = L.lookup_id

GROUP BY L.lookup_value
