Custom Dashboards Extension for Zoho Desk

Dashboards provide a central location for decision-makers to access, interact with, and analyze help desk data so they can make critical business decisions. The visualization also serves as an effective solution to the overwhelming amount of data that users work with every day. The Custom Dashboards put critical information into one place that is only a click away, so you don't have to navigate through tabs and folders to get a snapshot of the information you require. Plus, you can customize the extension to add or remove charts as needed.
