As Ben announced a while back, we’ve been developing a new custom data platform that offers much more flexibility in getting custom data into Geckoboard, and we’re excited to say we’ve just launched the (public) beta version of Datasets that anyone can try!
Look for ‘Datasets’ inside Geckoboard, or get started with the new documentation here – https://developer-beta.geckoboard.com/#datasets-introduction
In the new platform, you define a general schema to which you push data, and once set up, you (or another admin on your Geckoboard account) can build and edit any type of visualization on top of it, right from within Geckoboard.
That means that the same data can support, for example, a line chart, a bar chart, a geck-o-meter, a number widget, or a leaderboard, and anyone can now build widgets using custom data sources you’ve set up, regardless of technical ability.
We’re excited to hear your feedback and what you create with it. As always, let us know your thoughts and if you have any questions.
