GoodData Portal Interfaces

GoodData Portal includes two interfaces:

  • Responsive user interface
  • Pixel-perfect user interface

Responsive User Interface

The Responsive user interface is designed to be used wherever you need: on desktops and mobile devices.

In the Responsive interface, you can create Insights in Analytical Designer (the Analyze section). You can add them to KPI Dashboards (the KPIs section) to display multiple insights at once. Apart from insights, KPI Dashboards can also display key performance indicators (KPIs).

Insights are defined sets of measures, attributes, and filters that visualize your data. You can visualize your data in tables and various types of charts.

Measures can be simple measures based on facts or calculated measures that are calculated from other measures. Hover your mouse over the question mark next to the measure name in the Data Catalog to see the details.

In the Load section, you can import your data via a CSV file.
