Industry Intelligence Training Video #1: NETVIBES Dashboards

This is the first in a series of training videos covering the NETVIBES Information Intelligence apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. In this video, titled “Dashboards,” we begin by introducing the very basics of using NETVIBES apps in the context of the 3DDashboard. The training program that these videos will be a part of is intended for customers, and this video in particular may be a bit simplistic for existing 3DDashboard users; however, the videos that will follow will include some more advanced tips and tricks and best practices. The videos are performed using an R2020x environment and there have been a few UI changes recently, related to libraries, so these tutorials are fully up to date with those changes.

The next video will be “Managing Sources.” Are there any specific topics you’d like to see us cover? Let us know in the comments.

Introducing MisoData 2.0 – Anyway your data is, Netvibes has you covered

MisoData 1.0 empowered anyone to chart anything and compare to anything. MisoData 2.0 takes it one step further: compare anything to anything, anyway.


Anyway your data is. Go beyond time-series data with two new series ready to be charted and compared: qualitative (count items, e.g. transactions and mentions) and quantitative (add numeric values, e.g. sum of employees and sales).


Anyway events happen. Create Notes to easily pinpoint events on any chart to provide context and keep track of what happened.

Anyway your charts can be. Leverage Insights to automatically read (in full text) your charts and understand what is going on.


All of this is available for your Dashboards AND PushMail newsletters.

And there’s more…

To access, simply log on to your Premium account, go to “Add” and click on “MisoData”. Have remarks or questions? As usual, leave them in the comments section below or on our Uservoice page.

We hope you enjoy MisoData 2.0!

How-To: Your Very First Dashboard

If you’re new to Netvibes and don’t really know where to start, here’s a quick guide to teach you all the basics about our Dashboards and how to use them to gather all the content that’s relevant to you. Monitor everything about a topic on the web, inside and outside an organization: content, report, conversations, trends… all in one place, always up-to-date.

What is a Dashboard?

Dashboard is the name of a standard page in Netvibes. It’s a dynamic workspace where you can add web Apps (or Widgets), which are small applications that’ll provide specific information or functionality.

A default Dashboard looks like this:

How To Build The Perfect Corpus

As discussed in our previous article, only Netvibes Premium lets you create as many industry or product-specific corpora (libraries of sources) as you like for accurate, noise-free, segmented results. Now you can compare overall trends versus what your specific industry or influencers are saying. Since you can add new sources or influencers as you discover them, your libraries can evolve as fast as (or even faster than) your industry does.

In this article we’ll show you how to get started quickly in minutes, then refine your corpus as you go along for better and better results.

Get Started Quickly – Build a General Corpus


  • Use our Tab Wizard to create a general corpus. Simply type a keyword and let Netvibes do the rest and populate your tab with relevant content to start things up.
  • Add Google Search & Social Search. Go to Add Content, add both apps from the Essentials selection. Create multiple ones for different terms (e.g. if you’re monitoring the sportswear industry “Air Jordan”, “Nike” and “sneakers”).

Feature spotlight: Widget & Reader Views

For all newcomers to Netvibes, here’s a quick bit of info you might not know: Netvibes offers two different views to display the info, the Widget & Reader views.

If you’ve got a lot of apps (Gmail, Weather, Twitter or Social widget), the first one is probably the most suited for you. It’s called the Widget view and displays the information through Widgets or Apps that can be easily moved on the Dashboard, via drag & drop. In Netvibes Premium, apps can also display Analytics, Smart Filters and can be combined to form new “Compare Widgets”.

Here’s what a Widget view dashboard looks like (click to enlarge):


Tip: if you’ve got too many apps, simply create a new tab and drag them there.

The other view is called the Reader view: it’s the typical way to consume RSS feeds. It uses a display similar to that used in most RSS aggregators and allows you to have a quick overview of all your feeds. It offers three different views: List, Expanded and Mosaic. You can also expand and read through an entire article by simply clicking on its title.

Here’s what a dashboard using the Reader view looks like (click to enlarge):


Tip: if you have apps or widgets that are not feeds, they’ll be listed in the “Other Apps” section.

Log in now and try both views to find the one that works for you. Got questions? Suggestions? Let us know here in the comments or on our UserVoice page. We’ll cover more tips and features in forthcoming posts. Stay tuned!
