Adam Hewins with the NSW Snowboarding Conditions dashboard!

For Adam, Senior Operational Support Engineer and long-time snowboarder, this is a must-have dashboard for planning ahead to catch the perfect powder days.
Explore the dashboard in full on our Dashboard Gallery.
The best of the rest
Here’s a quick taster of all the shortlisted dashboards. Explore them more in the Dashboard Gallery and keep an eye out for other handy dashboards being published there too.
CI Builds dashboard
Ruben Vilhena, DevOps Manager at Smartest Energy, built this CI Builds Dashboard to manage the builds completed by the team in the last quarter. He pulled the data from Azure DevOps into SquaredUp to visualize all the aggregated data across pipelines.
Jaguar InControl car dashboard
Built by Nick Dewitte, Senior IT Consultant at Nimi GCV, this SquaredUp dashboard pulls info from the Jaguar InControl API to get various data points from his car. Now he’s got a handy overview of usage and service stats.
Octopus household energy usage dashboard
This dashboard was built to supplement the official Octopus customer dashboard for domestic energy usage. Georgina Robertson, Data Analyst at Segen created this to surface metrics that couldn’t be found in the official dashboard. Now she has a granular view of consumption trends over the course of the day.
JIRA ticket summary dashboard
Luke Gackle’s dashboard displays Jira ticket statuses at a glance for his role as ICT Service Desk Officer at the South Australian Tourism Commission. This helps the team quickly jump on any tickets that may have neared an SLA breach. In Jira, there was no easy way of displaying these numbers so the SquaredUp dashboard fills an insights gap.
SquaredUp Internal Dashboard Competition Winners
We also ran the competition internally and got some fantastic entries!
Here are the three winning dashboards. Find out more about them in the Dashboard Gallery.
Antarctic Observation dashboard
Fiona White, our Senior Test Engineer, created a great dashboard for Popsy the Penguin, the Engineering team mascot. The dashboard displays the weather conditions at key Antarctic research stations and readings from sensors used at one center.
Steam player data dashboard
If you ever wondered how many hours your kids were playing on Steam games and who they were interacting with, you’ll understand why Josip, SquaredUp’s Director of Engineering, built this dashboard. It’s full of fun achievement statistics as well as insightful information about time spent on gaming and even community updates.
Zendesk Customer Support dashboard
Also a winner was Amy’s Zendesk dashboard. Amy Farrell, Product Advocate Lead at SquaredUp, needed a dashboard for her team that couldn’t be built in Zendesk. She needed high-level visibility of the metrics important to the Customer Support Team for the SquaredUp Cloud product. Crucially, the team can now visualize trends in the ticket queue.
