As a BrightGauge user, you’re constantly referencing your gauges, dashboards, and reports to gain data insights that drive important business decisions. Right now, as remote work is the norm, your data is playing an increasingly important role in aligning your team members and making sure productivity stays on track. To really solidify that alignment amongst employees, you probably want to get more eyes on that crucial data on a more consistent basis. A question we often get asked is, “How can I share my BrightGauge data without adding more licenses to my account?”. There are various ways you can publicly share your data with key players without having to add more licenses, including dashboard playlists, public dashboard links, and embeddable gauges. Just ahead, we’ll cover each one. Dashboard playlists & viewer licenses You likely have several dashboards you are watching on a daily basis and that you care to share with your individual technicians or clients or board of directors. Creating dashboard playlists makes this simple. You can group relevant dashboards into one playlist, which will rotate in a carousel throughout the day, so you can easily stay on top of what matters. This is especially helpful if you like to view your dashboards on a TV or other screen other than your main computer. Here's a quick video on setting up your rotating dashboards: From your dashboard, click on ‘Present’ mode and select ‘Rotate Dashboards’, where you’ll see the option to choose from 3 playlists. Every user on your account can create up to 3 playlists, and each playlist includes up to 10 dashboards, so your viewing possibilities here are vast. Dashboards will rotate every 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, or 5 minutes depending on the cadence you prefer. NOTE ON VIEWER LICENSES: To share these dashboards, simply give your desired recipient ‘Viewer’ permissions within BrightGauge, which means they will have read-only access to anything you share with them and will not be able to edit or manipulate data. Reminder: your account comes with an unlimited number of viewer user allowances! Pro tip: use an internal viewer license for displaying dashboards on TVs, that way you won’t be prompted to log in! For more on user permissions, read this. Public dashboards A favorite amongst BrightGauge partners and perhaps the simplest way to share data with anyone you’d like. A Public dashboard is quite simply a read-only dashboard that is shared via a public URL. A dashboard is not public by default - you can only share a dashboard if you have switched on the public URL modal. The nice thing about public dashboards is that the end-user does not need to have any BrightGauge permissions whatsoever. Everybody and anybody with a public dashboard link will be able to view that dashboard without being required to sign in or enter any information. Some BrightGauge partners have told us they’ve shared public dashboards with peers and colleagues in order to help them understand what valuable metrics they should be tracking. We love this because we truly believe that teamwork makes the dreamwork! To learn more about sharing public dashboards, read this. Embeddable gauges When you want to display your metrics for anyone to see, rather than one specific individual to see, embeddable gauges are a great choice. They are basically just what their name implies - gauges which you can embed on a public site. When you mark a gauge as publicly viewable, you’ll have access to a short snippet of code that will allow you to embed the gauge wherever you’d like. Anyone viewing that gauge will not be able to click into it to apply a filter or access the drilldown, so what you see is what you get. One popular way partners use this feature is to display their CSAT scores or their average response times right on their marketing site, which is a great way to let numbers do the talking for you. See how BrightGauge partner C SPIRE started a service library using these gauges. Want to upgrade your account or understand more about these features?

Among the many things they do right, Network Doctor, an MSP firm based out of the Northern US, excels at keeping their engineers engaged and always focused on where they can help out next. Through their BrightGauge dashboards, each is able to cover a little self-triaging while seeing where their metrics line up for the day. We recently hosted a webinar with our longtime partners to go over how they use their dashboards to keep their techs motivated while on top of the endless ticket queues. Watch the webinar here: Pushing for Accountability & Auditing your Data with Network Doctor. For the dashboard featured, Network Doctor partner David Birk shared how they create individual dashboards for each team member. Color thresholds are then set to show the split of what the technician has on their plate, stats from the previous week, and where there is room for them to pick up "In-Progressable" tickets (tickets that aren't waiting on the customer and may be progressed along).

We’re excited to welcome Ashley Nicely to the team as a Partner Success Specialist! Join us in learning more about the newest member of our growing BrightGauge family. In the beginning Ashley comes to us from right here in South Florida, where she was born and raised. Specifically, she grew up in the Miami Lakes/Hialeah area. Ashley attended Florida International University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a minor in Education. She’s always taken an interest in understanding human behavior and mental processes and in creating content that engages the mind. During her statistics classes in college, Ashley gained an appreciation for data analytics and insights. This appreciation was further fueled by her many different client-facing roles, starting off in the service industry. Having to communicate with all walks of life and working in a fast-paced environment was a perfect fit for Ashley and she credits her experience in the service industry with her strong work ethic and attention to detail. She took her love of communication to a technology startup, Vs Media LLC, where she was an account manager tasked with helping clients create richer customer experiences, drive social discovery and networking online. Her work was largely driven by KPIs and using data to understand how to help people, which cemented her desire to focus her career on customer success. Joining BrightGauge Ashley’s passion for customer success is what brought her to BrightGauge, along with her appreciation for our commitment to making customer success a company-wide priority. What sold her on the opportunity was the BrightGauge culture. She says that during the interview process, it just felt like home. Everyone was warm and welcoming and really drove home the importance of accountability, transparency, and teamwork, which perfectly aligns with her core values. Ashley is really excited about living and breathing the BrightGauge product and helping our partners get the most out of their data. Out of office Ashley spends her free time with her beautiful family, including her husband, two young sons, and a Shih Tzu named Agatha. They are all lovers of outdoor adventures, so they visit city and state parks as much as possible. Local favorites are Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and The Everglades National Park. Ashley’s husband is an avid bird watcher, so whenever they plan vacations, it’s always first about the birds he can see and second about the foods Ashley can eat. At the end of a long day, Ashley loves nothing more than curling up with a hot cup of chamomile tea and a novel, so if you’re chatting with her, make sure to mention your latest read!
