Visualizing Data on a Dashboard

Last Modified: June 22, 2021

Create a custom dashboard to display important data about your distributed systems with Dashboard Builder.

To help you build the right dashboard for your data needs, you can choose between two dashboard types:
  • Tile dashboards—Display your tag, system, asset, and test data with tiles you can easily configure, organize, and consume.
  • Free-form dashboards—Display your tag and system data with indicators and controls like you would on a console or LabVIEW front panel.

    This dashboard type is deprecated. NI recommends that you use tile dashboards instead of free-form dashboards for new visualizations you create.

Refer to the following table to determine what type of dashboard you want to create.
Type of dashboard Level of Difficulty Benefits What it looks like

  • Lightweight
  • User-intuitive
  • Standardizable
  • Reproducible
Free-form dashboard Hard
