RIM Dashboard: Timelines

Given the multiple "date" fields in submissions (eg planned, actual submission date) and content planning, it would be useful if there were a reporting/dashboard option that creates a timeline where these features can be displayed and grouped by different categorical variables. This would benefit a number of functions within the company and would be a significant improvement over the current, closest option of creating a column graph with limited formatting options.

    Hi Andrew - thanks for the product suggestion. This sounds like an interesting one. Do you happen to have an example of what your ideal timeline view would look like?

    Thanks, Graham

    Hi Graham, 

    Thanks for your response. I imagine something like the included image but I'm absolutely open to ideas from others. Key features I would be interested in are: 1) grouping by product and/or application, 2) submission name present next to the icon 3) more information (eg X days until, product/application, planned date, etc...) becomes visible when the user hovers over the icon, 4) customizing the time frame of the timeline (eg zooming into a specific week, month, quarter, year).

    It'd be really nice to have a graphical representation of the submission date information attached to submission records. This is really useful when we are looking ahead at what is coming this week, month, quarter, year, etc...
