Measure remote work impact with the enhanced Business continuity dashboard

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Workplace Analytics & MyAnalytics Blog articles.

Last month, the Workplace Analytics team released the Business continuity dashboard to provide you insights about the impact of shifting to remote work. We have listened to your feedback since that initial release, and today we are excited to announce an update to this experience. With the new Business continuity dashboard, you are able to identify opportunities to improve remote work effectiveness, track the evolution of remote collaboration over time, and customize your report to suit your organization’s needs.  


With today’s release, the dashboard now includes: 


  • New ways to customize and pivot insights in the report 
  • A simpler and clearer dashboard design 
  • A summary page highlighting five key focus areas for remote work improvement and best practice recommendations   




  • Rolling average trend lines to track remote work impact over time 




To use the Business continuity dashboard 

The steps to use the updated Business continuity dashboard depend on whether you are using it for the first time or not.  

If you are using the dashboard for the first time:  

  1. In Workplace Analytics, run the two pre-defined query templates: Business Continuity and Hourly Collaboration. 
  2. Download the Power BI template from the Business Continuity query result. 
  3. Open the Power BI template and load the query results. Results will be refreshed weekly. 

If you are already using the dashboard: 

  1. Download the new Power BI template from any one of your previously executed Business Continuity queries. 
  2. Open the Power BI template and load the query results. Results will be refreshed weekly.  

Who can create the dashboard?  

  • You must be assigned the role of analyst in Workplace Analytics.   
  • You must have the latest version of Power BI Desktop installed. Uninstall all old versions of Power BI Desktop first. Then go to Get Power BI Desktop to download and install it.
