Example Layout of Summary Page:
The layout below provides a typical arrangement of page regions to accommodate one or more metrics for KPIs and reports for key tasks related to data correlation and comparison. The example below is a two-column arrangement of page regions. This arrangement is good for representing metrics with bigger timelines and complex data on the horizontal axis. The top four metrics or reports could be placed in the visible region of the page and the rest could be stacked below these page regions. A user could access these additional metrics by scrolling the page vertically. However, if there are more than seven or eight metrics, it's better to create more logical groupings and assign a new tab for them.
