“I tell you and you forget. I show you and you remember. I involve you and you understand.”
Confucius (500 BC)

The great scholar of humanity, brings out the foremost objective of any analysis, to understand the underlying data more effectively and to be able to take real world decisions supported by the better methodologies.

Serious Vtiger users have felt the need for the ability to visualise their crm data, and the provisions in the native system are inadequate at best. Most users, have either resorted to external tools which directly consume the mySql database and render reports and visualisations, eg JasperSoft Reports, Pentaho etc.

Perhaps at present there is no other better way, as yet, ergo the motivation to build dashDZiner and Chart DZiner, first conceptualized two years ago.

dashDZiner allows every Vtiger user to design a personalized dashboard for each entity module, which would (optionally) supersede the ListView as the default module view.

Dashlings are individual panels, aka Home Page Widgets, extended with more features

1. Module Lists
2. Module Reports
3. Custom Charts
4. Custom Widgets
5. Predefined Widgets#

1. Module Lists
This is like the original Home page module reports, except that more fields are selectable, overcoming the two column limitation imposed in the native system.

2. Module Reports
Any report defined in the Vtiger reports system is renderable as a dashling.

3. Custom Charts
Select any chart designed by ChartDZiner as a dashling.

4. Custom Widgets
Bring webservice based information from third party/external systems into a dashling

5. Predefined Widgets#
a. Local Weather
b. Currency Rates
c. Multi Clocks Panel
d. Stock Watch
e. Scratchpad
d. asterisk PhonePad
