GoodData Portal user interface
The GoodData Portal user interface is designed to be used wherever you need: on desktops and mobile devices.
You can create Insights in Analytical Designer (the Analyze tab). 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.
You can add them to Dashboards (the Dashboards tab) to display multiple insights at once. Apart from insights, Dashboards can also display key performance indicators (KPIs).
In the Data section, you can access tools for data loading and scheduling, data modeling, and data source management.
Use the Manage tab to manage, create and edit calculated measures (metrics), and access tools for workspace and user management.
