    Full Description & Project Guide

    Background Overview
    Currently, our team presenting various data metrics in a powerpoint to senior management. These metrics data was created manually using chart features in powerpoint. Now, we want you to give us some automatic and creative way to represent the data which may include metrics, texts, etc via our CxO Dashboard app. All the dashboard details would be representing the 3 perspectives (run, change/grow, transform). These data representation then will be captured by our team (taking a screenshot) and then they will put the screenshot in powerpoint for presentation in front of our senior management. 

    Challenge Goal
    Create a neat, modern and simple dashboard and it's layout variation to present various data metrics.

    Note: This F2F will use the following format, the first submission that meets our requirements will win this challenge!! 

    Screen Requirements
    01. Input Data Screen
    - Before able to show the dashboard metrics with value on it, we need a screen where our user will enter some input to get the data processed by the app
    - we need to imagine the input required to generate those metrics in other pages. For now, let's create a set of dummy form fields and provide submit button on this screen
    - Before goes to the dashboard page, the user will be asked (can be via modal window, etc) to select which metrics that they want to see in the dashboard (check our xlsx docs for 14 mandatory metrics and additional metrics)
    - Provide error scenario for mandatory form and error data processing.

    02. Dashboard Screen
    - This dashboard will be used as a template where the user can get the metrics content and then take a screenshot of the dashboard and copy them to the powerpoint presentation
    - Needs an ability where the dashboard template suggest the best layout presentation to all selected metrics (provides layout recommendation)
    - Because of the recommendation features, please provide at least 3 kind of different dashboard layout for the recommendations with the following metrics available in each layout:
    -- All 14 required metrics
    -- All Additional metrics
    -- Half required metrics combined with additional metrics
    - The content visualization of the dashboard can be vary, including metrics, texts, etc
    - Check our powerpoint reference documents, page 1 gives the 3 perspectives and KPI categories and pages 2 elaborate the key metrics under each perspective and each category.
    - Check the excel reference documents, the listed 14 metrics and other reference metric list also can be picked up by the user to show (check xlsx docs)
    - Do not give us fancy chart that cannot be developed by existing chart framework. Your chart design creation MUST be able to be developed using chart framework that available on the internet (Chart.js, d3.js, etc) 

    - Keep things consistent. This means all 
    graphic styles should work together.
    - All of the graphics should have a similar feel and general aesthetic appearance
    - Focus on User Experience / how 
    user interacts with the dashboard
