How I Use Layout Containers (Part 1) - Social Media KPI Dashboard

No comments
Layout containers are super useful, if you understand the concept for how to use them. In this livestream, I build a simple KPI dashboard of social media metrics.

The dashboard being rebuilt is based on this Excel dashboard - https://exceldashboardschool.com/social-media-dashboard/

I started by building a wireframe to show how I would use each container.



From there, I started constructing the dashboard. If you want to follow along, you can download the data here.

The link to the video below by Curtis Harris was a game changer for me as to how I understood Tiled vs. Floating. I can't recommend it enough. It's a big influence on every dashboard I create.
