Check Out the New Dashboard Features in FIN Stack

The FIN Stack development team has been working on a solution for creating dashboards in FIN and is excited to announce a solution! The team has pre-designed and put together a variety of easy-to-use charts and gauges, each with their own configuration wizards, that allow users to create fully customizable dashboards quicker and easier than ever before. These components are contained in external pods, that can be added into the FIN Stack installation. Once the pods are added, the components will appear in the Graphic Builder’s component library.

Now, users can simply drag out any component they'd like, and begin customizing it through a configuration wizard that is unique to each type of component. You can also open up that component's settings to begin configuring it.

The settings that appear are unique to the individual component. They allow you to easily configure the data and effortlessly select points from an automatically populated list of available virtual points. This allows users to create charts in minutes.

There is also a large selection of gauges that can be populated with data by simply dragging the component into the workspace, and then dragging and dropping a virtual point onto it to create the binding.

Finally, we added in some miscellaneous background and text components that help users create a consistent look and feel to their dashboards. Ready to see how it works? Check out the video!

As you can see, creating dashboards in FIN Stack has never been easier thanks to a new FIN Stack update. Please contact for more information and to get access to the FIN service pack.

You can also read about it in our online docs.
