A digital dashboard is a Web page or a series of Web pages, running inside Outlook 2000, that consolidate personal, team, corporate, and external information. A digital dashboard can be as simple as a single Web page that displays a user’s daily calendar and favorite links or a full-featured knowledge-management solution that joins information from enterprise and external sources. By using the technologies and programming techniques discussed in this module, you can create a digital dashboard based on Outlook Today. Digital dashboards utilize Outlook Today to access critical business information, and take advantage of the analysis tools, collaboration capabilities, and Internet and messaging standards support in Microsoft Office 2000. Slide Objective To outline this topic. Lead-in You can create a digital dashboard by using skills you learned that relate to folder home pages, the Outlook view control, and the Outlook Today Web page.

Knowledge workers are employees whose fundamental task is analyzing and manipulating information. In its simplest form, a digital dashboard is nothing more than a very dynamic Web page that is running within Outlook 2000. Normally, a digital dashboard is a customized Outlook Today page. There are a number of decisions that need to be made, however, about what information to include on the page, how users will interact with the information offline, and what level of customization will be available to users. It is highly recommended that development begin with a single Web page hosting a limited amount of information before more detailed solution is undertaken. Introducing the Information Section The term information section is used to describe the filtered, robust, and dynamic information that is displayed in a digital dashboard. The technical way in which that information is rendered can be a Microsoft ActiveX ® control, an Active Server Page (ASP), or an Extensible Markup Language (XML) data feed. The important element of an information section is that it presents information in a concise fashion, focusing on what the user needs, and that it be dynamic, so that the user can access information in greater detail (drill down). These information sections can come from a wide variety of sources — personal information from Outlook 2000 or sales data from a Microsoft SQL Server ™ version 7.0 data warehouse. Slide Objective To present a sample digital dashboard. Lead-in Digital dashboards enable knowledge workers to interact with custom business information. Note 4 Module 8: Creating a Digital Dashboard Capabilities of Digital Dashboards  Access to Any Information Source  Integration of Information  Interactivity with Information Digital dashboards offer the following capabilities. Access to Any Information Source Digital dashboard solutions build on an organization’s existing business systems by pulling multiple data sources together in one place. Information from virtually any source—former systems, Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, SQL Server 7.0, or Web servers—can be made accessible through a digital dashboard for online and offline use. Integration of Information A digital dashboard integrates personal, team, corporate, and external information, enables learning between knowledge workers and collaboration among teams, filters corporate information, and provides a dynamic repository of external information. Interactivity with Information A digital dashboard provides interactive capabilities that enable knowledge workers to quickly obtain a more in-depth perspective of business conditions. High-level sales and competitive data can be further analyzed in relevant business reports and applications, allowing knowledge workers to interact directly with the data using Office PivotTable ® Web components or Microsoft Excel with SQL Server integration. A digital dashboard can also incorporate tools such as Microsoft NetMeeting ® conferencing software, which allows people to share applications and collaborate over the intranet or Internet, and Microsoft Windows Media ™ player. Slide Objective To list the capabilities of digital dashboards. Lead-in Digital dashboards offer access to any information source, integration of information, and interactivity with information. Module 8: Creating a Digital Dashboard 5 Integrating Web Content  Integrating ActiveX Controls  Many freely available ActiveX controls can be used  Integrating Dynamic Web Pages  Dynamically generated Web pages can be included within a frame or Iframe  Integrating Dynamic Web Content  Low-bandwidth, dynamic Web content from a URL can be included Because a digital dashboard is a Web page, adding Web content is simple. The following sections include some ideas for incorporating useful external content. Be careful to not include too much dynamic content in broadly distributed digital dashboards. The demands on network bandwidth can become quite high if, for example, 10,000 people are all receiving similar feeds from the Internet. Integrating ActiveX Controls There are a number of freely available ActiveX controls that you can incorporate into a digital dashboard. For example, you can incorporate the MSN ™ Investor Ticker Control, for which the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) code is quite simple. <object classid="clsid:D3E12F51-0795-11d2-91CC-00C04FA31C90" codebase="http://fdl.msn.com/public/investor/v6//ticker.cab#version=6,1998,1031,3" height="34" style="MARGIN-LEFT: 8px" type="application/x-oleobject" width="100%"> </object> Integrating Dynamic Web Pages The only way to include dynamically generated Web pages, such as ASPs, is in a frame or Iframe. Iframes are generally very useful tools for quickly integrating Web content into digital dashboards. Be aware, however, that each Iframe creates a new instance of the base Microsoft Internet Explorer engine, referred to as the Trident engine. While a few Iframes are not a significant issue, it is not a good idea to base your entire page on Iframes. Slide Objective To list the types of Web content you can integrate within a digital dashboard. Lead-in You can integrate Web content into your digital dashboard by using ActiveX controls, dynamic Web pages, and dynamic Web content. Note 6 Module 8: Creating a Digital Dashboard Integrating Dynamic Web Content A common technique used in building digital dashboards is the including low- bandwidth dynamic content. Many Web sites produce content that is updated on a regular basis, but the content always resides at the same Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Traffic cameras are a good example of this. Even though the picture updates roughly every five minutes, it is always located at the same URL (such as http://TraffCam.gov/camera10.gif).

Module 8: Creating a Digital Dashboard 15 Using a reg File to Point Users to a Shared Digital Dashboard If you are distributing your digital dashboard through a Web page, you can simply point users to that page by providing them with a reg file The reg file is simply a text file that contains code similar to the following sample REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Webview\mailbox]... version 3.0, that are capable of providing tailored experiences to end users Types of Customization There are a number of different levels at which customization should be considered in digital dashboards While a user could create a personal digital dashboard, most digital dashboards are built and distributed by an informationtechnology (IT) group The following are levels of customization that can be considered... can be saved to the file system, a file share, or a Web server They are created by using Excel and can be viewed by using the Office Web Components These cubes provide the same ability to view detailed data that underlies summary data that a user might have when online However, users do not have to be connected to a database when using cube slices Module 8: Creating a Digital Dashboard 13 Creating Offline .
