Tip of the Week – Use Visualforce to supercharge your Salesforce Dashboards

Visualforce Dashboard

If you’ve been using Salesforce for a while, you know the power of Dashboards is in their ability to turn piles of disjointed data into real, usable visuals. But sometimes you need more than graphs, charts, and lists to get the true 360° view or to motivate your team to succeed. When standard Dashboards fall short, what can you do? You need a solution that’s cheap, easy to implement, and easy to maintain.

Did you know that you can create a Visualforce page for use on a Salesforce Dashboard? That’s right, let that sink in. Visualforce, you know, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and all the power of Salesforce including Apex. Need something simple? Write up a basic flat page in HTML. When your needs grow, it’s ready to grow with you, and with the power of the full Force.com platform at your fingertips, the sky’s the limit. Here’s just one simple use case. And another one for fun. Now let your imagination run wild!
