  3. I agree, this dashboard is Exceptional with excellent dynamic functions!! It is a more complicated template that simplifies the global aspect of the company's team performance. Good color choices. I’m interested to know how the data is collect and stored on a larger scale.
    1. How is the overall data collecting?
    2. Is the data in one spreadsheet/template, or pulled systemically?
    3. Do you need several sheets to collect and house all the input data?

  4. I spent about half an hour reverse engineering the design of this dashboard. Many cool things going on here. I definitely picked up a couple of tricks from this. Very nicely done.
