About the DataPig Dashboard Tools Add-in
The DataPig Dashboard Tools is an Excel Add-in that helps you quickly and easily create stylized graphics for your dashboard, find viable color schemes, and create dashboard mock ups.

With the components found in the DataPig Dashboard Tools Add-in, you can easily add highly stylized components to your dashboards and reports. And because the components in this Add-in use the native Shapes found in Excel, they are completely customizable.




When the Add-in has been successfully installed, a Group named DataPig Dashboard Tools will appear on the Insert tab of the Excel ribbon.  In this group, you will see four galleries: Info Graphics, Canvas Builder, Color Swatches and Mockup Tools.




Note:  This Add-in will work with Excel 2007, 2010 and 2013 for both 32 and 64 bit (PC only). We don't have a MAC version at this time.


Info Graphics Components
When you click the Info Graphics button, you will see a gallery of all the available info graphics.
Simply select the graphic you want and it will immediately show up on your spreadsheet.




The component that populates your form is simply a collection of shapes that are grouped. This gives you the ability to fully customize and link your Info Graphic to your data.
Actions you can take:
•Delete individual shapes
•Change Fill color
•Change font color and size
•Change outline color and thickness
•Apply Shadows
•Apply Gradients
•Send Shapes to Back/Front (Right-click and Bring to Front or Send to Back)
•Link Shapes to Cells




Canvas Builder Components
When you click the Info Graphics button, you will see a gallery of all the available info graphics.
Simply select the graphic you want and it will immediately show up on your spreadsheet.



Again, the component that populates your form is simply a collection of shapes that are grouped. This gives you the ability to fully customize the color and shape of your canvas, as well as the position order for layering.



Color Swatch Components
When you click the Color Swatches button, you will see a gallery of mock dashboards that have different color schemes. Simply select the graphic you want and it will immediately show up on your spreadsheet.


The purpose of this component is simply to give you a sense of dashboard-friendly color schemes (sort of like a color guide post). Each of these color swatches use colors from the Standard Office theme, so you won’t have to go through fancy RGB manipulations.

After you select a swatch, you can click on a component in the group, and then take note of which fill and font color it is using.






Dashboard Mockup Components
When you click the Mockup Tools button, you will see a gallery of dashboard mockup components that can be used pull together quick and dirty mockups.



When you mock-up a dashboard, you essentially build a “practice” dashboard to get a feel of what the components and layout will look like. Mockups give you and your client something tangible to look at and agree upon before diving into serious development work.
Simply select the mockup graphic you want and it will immediately show up on your spreadsheet. The idea is to insert various components from this section to build an electronic dashboard mockup you can use.
