    Interactive Dashboard and data filtering

    I am trying to create an interactive dashboard but being an unexperienced person with excel functionality I ham facing some challenges and wondering if one of you can help me out.
    I am attaching a sample data file that contains two tabs (data and dashboard). By looking at dashboard tab you will know what I am trying to build. Based on the drop down values I would like to populate the data on the dashboard tab.

    let me know if its not clear or if you have any questions.

    Really appreciate your help!

    thanks

    Re: dashboarding....

    Based on the value user select from the Orange drop down box the value under the capabilities (red section) changes. for example if i selected Total App it will show the count of "id" under each capability (like you are showing for yellow DV). If i select total cost it should change the count of "id" to total cost associated with the capability.

    Once i populated the value based on the orange DV than based on the yellow box it should apply the filter by CIO column. Default value for the yellow DV is all.

    I hope this helps!

    Really appreciate your help

    thanks

    Re: Interactive Dashboard and data filtering

    try this version

    i didn't know how exactly you wanted to view criticality it was kind of weird but you should be able to get the gist of it

    on the side all the work is done which you can hide

    on the dash board is just references

    hopefully this is enough to get you on the right track as i am sure you want to expand it later down the line

    Re: Interactive Dashboard and data filtering

    Thanks much...
    One question...does this means I have to build the data first like you did on the dashboard tab and then use that to show the values? if I want to add more capabilities to it?

    Thx.

    Re: Interactive Dashboard and data filtering

    its easier way of doing it
    otherwise you will have in single cell a very long and convoluted formula which would be hard to maintain

    the "building" does not have to be on the same sheet if you dont want it

    Re: Interactive Dashboard and data filtering

    Thanks...I have created a separate sheet to calculate the value.

    I have encountered one thing and thought maybe you can help me out with this.

    I am attaching the sheet, look at the row # 106 & 115 under data tab. Now when I count total apps for online it should not add these two lines in the total. How could I do this? Also this will impact the Total Cost too?

    How could I do this by comparing all three levels of capability L1, L2, & L3?


    Really appreciate your help!

    Thanks

    Never mind, I figured it out. I added another criteria with in SUMIFS and changed SUMIF to SUMIFS.

    Really really appreciated your help!

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not crosspost your question on multiple forums without including links here to the other threads on other forums.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).
