Event: Dashboarding 101: Visualizing Metrics to Make Key Decisions
Friday, November 1, 2019: 11:25am - 12:25pm Central at the ACI Fall Conference
Inputting information into fundraising databases is a cinch these days—but sharing that information in an easily-consumable format can still be a challenge. How can you curate and display fundraising metrics to help inform stakeholders and make decisions?
This session will explore the ongoing journey of North Central College as they have navigated challenges related to reporting metrics, used Excel to create a fundraising dashboard, and are now developing a more advanced solution using Shiny, an opensource tool. Presenters will explain how sharing information through dashboards has shaped conversations with development staff and the Board. Through the course of this case study, attendees will hear successes, lessons learned, and best practices they can use as they create and refine their own fundraising dashboards.
