๐Ÿ“Š Dashboards Overview

Dashboards are one of the most powerful parts of Faros. This is where all your data comes together to give you actionable insights, specific to your teams' needs. There are two kinds of Dashboards in Faros

  1. Pre-Built
  2. Custom

Faros provides you with out of the box dashboards for everything from team speed to company onboarding. Pre-built dashboards give you access to a wide variety of insights which include DORA metrics, industry benchmarks, different views, and many other more.

Custom dashboards allow you to dive deeper into your data and build your own insights. You can do something as simple as adding a filter to a pre-built dashboard, or build an entirely new dashboard based on new custom metrics you've created.

The following sections look at the specific kinds of dashboards more closely but there are a few topics that extend to all dashboards.

Refresh

You may notice that the minute new data is available in Faros, whether that's from a change you've made in the UI or from a source re-syncing, the dashboards are not automatically updated. Dashboards operate similarly to sources. They have a scheduled refresh every few hours. However, if you would like to see your updated dashboards sooner you can force a dashboard sync.

To do this, navigate to the Graphs page found in the Settings section. Here you'll want to find the current selected graph. You'll be able to see when the last sync occurred and verify the sync status was successful. To force a re-sync select the refresh icon in the graphs table.

Next, click on the graph. You'll see logs pop up at the bottom of the page. Here you can see when your graph was last synced. You'll need to hit the refresh icon in the top right of the logs to update them. These logs will tell you when your graph is being updated, and when the sync has finished. It may take up to 5 minutes for the sync to complete.
