This dashboard will be useful if you’re keen to learn more about Power BI, especially on the navigation buttons! This dashboard has multiple navigation buttons on the left-hand side to help users access more in-depth data if there’s a need to investigate deeper.

The visualizations on the right are slightly more complex than my previous dashboard—there are callout cards, line charts, and bar charts. However, the dashboard does not look cluttered as some of the axis lines are cleaned up.

In this dashboard, we have navigation panels on the left to drill down to the details for each metric, as well as donut charts to visualize the split between A/B (test/control) groups.
