In order to create more beautiful, modern and clearer Dashboard the whole Dashboard-setup should be modernized.
The design-modernization should also be applied to the reports.
This ticket is supposed to be an ongoing list to track ideas and inspiration
A new layout system
A row-based layout in order to allow different columns per row
Right now we can view the settings ALWAYS by hovering over a widget. I suppose that customization options should only be displayed when activating an "edit mode". This provides a clearer UI and prevents from changing anything unintentionally
Hide empty values
An option to hide empty values from tables and bar-charts
Add options to display comparable values everywhere (compared to insights view - e.g add graph line from previous month)
There's already an option to re-fetch the data for a single widget. A button to update all widgets would be lovely
The graphs (especially the line-graph) feel pretty fashioned and could be modernized (see examples below)
Save selected time period
Right now the analytics period always jumps back to global user-default ("day" by default). For some dashboard that doesn't makes any sense at all. I'd suggest to save the period selected in the editing mode mentioned above
Limit dashboard for specific sites
Custom created dashboards are available on all sites. I'd suppose to add a whitelist and a blacklist option to enable or disable the dashboard just for specific sites
@Dominic-Marcelino thank you for the feedback and suggestions, our UX team is currently working on this.
@Dominic-Marcelino yeah, it's not really shown on the milestone, I would say you probably look at Matomo 5. x for these changes, but it's definitely on our plans.
I would really like to see a custom HTML or perhaps a markdown widget as well, so that you can describe the dashboards better to the users.
