In May, we made improvements to how you control and customize your dashboards in NewsWhip Spike.
To give you greater visibility of the available widgets in your dashboards, and to quickly add relevant widgets — we have rebuilt how you add and manage widgets in monitoring, crisis, and research dashboards.
Better insight from every dashboard
With this update, we’re making it clear to you which widgets you can add to your dashboard. This isn’t just useful when creating a new dashboard, but for your existing dashboards too.
Now you get a sidebar that gives you an overview of all available widgets, along with an indication of the widgets you are currently using. This means you can see all widgets that can be useful to you, like the top websites leaderboard, or our latest widget — top Reddit Communities Leaderboard.
Less time building, more time understanding
We have also made it easier to customize each search from the all searches view in your monitoring dashboards. You can customize everything in your dashboard from one place, and no longer have to switch between searches to add new widgets.
This will be useful if you want to temporarily explore the most influential authors or subreddits relating to your searches, and then toggle back to your standard day to day monitoring widgets. This new add widget view also makes it easy to ensure your searches are returning the right insights at the right time, so you never miss the right information.
