Today’s tip off is a super handy tool for freelancers and consultants of all kinds, a free invoice template from the folks at Paydirt. Most full time consultants pay for a full online invoicing software solution, but if you’re just freelancing on the side (or just starting out), then this cost may not be within your budget. When you’re all done, you can print your invoice, or download your invoice as a PDF in a click. Of course, if you’d like to start using the full invoicing software, you can create and account to save your invoice, send it to your client, or add a PayPal payment button.

Linda, one of My Excel School students shared this dashboard link with me and asked if I can show how to construct something like this. Understand the sources of data: Another tricky part of a dashboard development is to get right data. Prioritize the information: Once you have listed down various metrics, KPIs, information pieces to be used in the dashboard, list them down in the order of priority.
Make a rough sketch of the dashboard: Even before you make something in Excel, just make a rough sketch using pen and paper (or MS Paint or PowerPoint). This step becomes easier once you have clarity of vision and listed down what you want (and what you dont want).

Just fill out the invoice template with your details (business name, your name, address) and your clients details, and add to the description what the invoice is for. In corporate environments, your data sources may be spread across and follow their own formats. Metrics or KPIs that are most important and indicate the overall health of the system (or project, initiative or company) should be on top. You must remove items, metrics and information that is low on value from the end dashboard. The Michigan state government folks have done fine job of listing down the metrics and carefully capturing them and presenting the outlook in a crisp fashion.
It is about accurately communicating what has happened, and maybe even provide a reason for why.

Definately doable, and Chandoo my man, I think this is a really good example of a simple, yet effective dashboard.
I have always been a fan of KISS (Keep It Super Simple) and this applies every so much to the world of dashboards. Like you say, it is imperative to understand what you're audience expects and wants to see, and that means talking to them!
