With Tab Labels, One Team Dashboard Morphs To Please All Groups

Netvibes dashboards can be fully customized with multiple tabs to track anything that matters to you. Having multiple tabs allows you to organize your dashboard any way you like, by grouping certain data and charts together or keeping them separate.

Today we are releasing a new feature called Tab Labels, available only for Netvibes Premium Dashboards for Team (NPDx), in Agencies and Enterprises. Users of the Master NPDx can create labels for each tab on the dashboard. For example: label your tabs by language (French, English, etc.), label by department (marketing, sales, finance), label by topic, or create any label you choose.

With labeled tabs, you can easily choose which tabs to display on the dashboard, and which tabs to hide. If you have a lot of tabs on your dashboard, this is handy way to focus on the specific information you need. With just a few clicks you can instantly switch your dashboard’s focus, depending on what topic you’re working on, what language you’re speaking, or whom you’re meeting with.
