Product Release: LGL Dashboard gets a new look

Posted June 8, 2021 by Hunter Williams

We’re excited to announce an update, including the addition of several graphs, to the Little Green Light Dashboard.

The graphs show aggregated gift and pledge data, and you can adjust the time frame and gift types to display. Updates to the dashboard also include greater display customization: You can now move the widgets to the left, right, or middle column, and you can resize them (depending on the minimum size required to display the widget).

This article provides a quick description of the 4 new LGL Dashboard graphs. At the end of the article, you can link to a video that shows the new dashboard in action.

Synopsis of the 4 new graphs on the LGL Dashboard


1. Total Raised by Type and Year

This graph lets you quickly see your full-year fundraising totals. It shows the total amount you’ve raised during the current and prior two years. As in all these graphs, total raised is the sum of gifts received (including pledge payments) and any open balances for pledges made during the period.

2. Total Raised by Type and Month

This graph helps you visualize your fundraising pattern over an extended period of time. It shows on a timeline how much you’ve raised by month. You can adjust the timeline bar to show several years of data at once.

3. Total Raised by Month, Year over Year

This graph helps you compare the pattern of your current year fundraising to that of the prior two years. Whereas the graph above is on a continuous timeline, this one shows the months of the year on the x-axis and then overlays your fundraising for the current and prior two years.

4. Pledge Summary by Year of Pledge

This graph lets you see at a glance how you’re doing in terms of pledge commitments and pledge payments. It shows the current and prior two years and also a lump sum for the years prior to that. All data is presented based on the year in which the pledge was made.
