Rise Boards can fit very nicely with your existing business dashboards.
Cyfe for instance offers a business dashboard tool where you can get up and running quite easily and very cheaply – you get up to 5 widgets on their free plan.
Adding a Rise Board to a business dashboard is a great way to bring a bit of competitive interest by showing, on a weekly basis, where you stand versus your competition.
Rise now has a new feature that lets you easily add a leaderboard powered by Rise to a Cyfe business dashboard either as a list or a table.
I’ve been using Cyfe as a way to monitor the development of my personal brand online. I’ve been charting my Klout influence score and my current number of Twitter followers – two of the key personal brand metrics I’m interested in at the moment.
However, I don’t want these metrics in isolation and, since Success Tracking is all about community and stories – it’s much more interesting to see where I stand versus others on the same journey.
To this end, I’ve added the Gamification Gurus Power 100 leaderboard to my Cyfe dashboard. I can now see I’m number 20 this month, so a bit of work to do to maintain my top ten spot.
I’ve also created a Rise board with a selected 10 accounts whose key metrics I’m tracking. I see them as my peers when building a personal brand – the top people are aspirational (I’m a while off their reach!) but it also includes people nearer to me who I hope to nudge past every so often!
How I added my Rise boards to my Cyfe business dashboard
Using Cyfe I added each Rise board as a widget using the ‘Custom – Private URL – table’ widget type:
Once I had the widget on my dashboard I configured it by giving it a name, pasting in the URL from Rise for the Cyfe Table widget and setting the refresh rate to 24 hours.
By adding Rise leaderboards, I made my business dashboard that little bit more interesting!
If you’d like to try it, then why not create an account on Cyfe (you can use the code: risedotglobal for a cheeky 20% discount if you find yourself subscribing) and then add a Custom Widget – Private URL. Configure it by adding the Rise Online Influencer board to your Cyfe dashboard. The embed URL to paste in is:
Please do share screenshots of how your dashboard with Rise Boards embedded look – I’d love to see them!
