Helping data analysts create effective dashboards is a key task for User Experience (UX) designers. Incorporating multiple components into a unified report involves more than just a general knowledge of the user interface (UI) and UX. Even for seasoned UX designers, a great amount of effort is spent on distilling large amounts of complex information into a simple, clear storytelling report.
