A Blast from the Past - The Remake of Challenge 7

Hello All,


“A blast from the past - The remake of Challenge 7

The Intro

I wish everyone enjoyed Enteprise DNA Challenge 19 and is excited about Reporting & Data Visualization Summit. Please register to the summit to obtain the dataset, registration link below.

After Data Challenge 19, our data challenge community had grown up to 750+ members within 45 days. 52 posts had been viewed over 30k times and commented 500 times. Moreover, we were pleased to accept 55 final entries with 200+ analysis pages and 150+ navigation buttons. However, everyone wants to enjoy more! Now, we launch a one-week data challenge to remake/redesign Challenge 7 “Purchase, Inventory and Sales” .

The report we would like you to redesign, was created by Mudassir Syed Ali an Enterprise DNA Expert, in September 2020.

The Brief

  • Billing – This is the transactional data of what we sold to which customer.

Business Requests:

  • Monitor Purchase/Receive/Billing trend
  • Track receiving time elapsed by material and customer

Nope, but almost, you register for the summit and download the dataset, just the data set, from the summit registration page and then revamp his report.

Are you in is only 7 days :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:


Ok, now I get you.

A 7 day turnaround…so going on my past history…erm…eh…I’ll submit mine in the 7 days between 08/08/22 & 14/08/22 :joy: :wave:




I just downloaded the file but it contains only one worksheet called “Billing” with purchase orders data.

Good morning @FPastor,
In the sales data there are some records that have a billing date but as tons billed it has a null value.
Do we consider for these cases the amounts invoiced are the same as those received?

Hi Jose,

I have not been given directions in this regard and we should not, therefore, make assumptions. I would calculate them independetly!!!

I hope this clarifies.

Hey Platform Members :person_raising_hand:t3:,

:fire::fire:Please see my entry for the one-week challenge " A blast from the Past - The remake of Challenge 7" by @MudassirAli

Oneweek to redesign a report, it is not easy but one week to redesign nicely a report from @MudassirAli almost mission impossible, “Where is Tom Cruise when you need him” :sunglasses:

3 main considerations in my brainstorming process :exploding_head:

  1. Timeline :spiral_calendar:

  2. Understanding the data :bar_chart:

  3. Creating something totally different :fearful:

My take ended on :arrow_right: creating a metrics report “mini-metrics” ensuring alignment and sizing is spot on when working in tight spaces. Keep exploring shadow effects, new fonts, and layout. Important use of “Edit interactions” so filters only apply to my requirements. Introduce some new native viz, ribbon chart introduced. Experiment with the new parameter function. :grin::+1:t3:

:dart::dart:Most important ensuring that my mini metrics matched with the metrics in the pic provided in the challenge’s brief :dart::dart:

Well, I have been very busy over the weekend, and this is the result. I hope you like it :+1:t3::+1:t3:

:bell::bell: Still plenty of time to enter the One-week Challenge and to join the EDNA Analytics summit. To obtain the dataset join the summit and scroll down in the summit page to find the challenge section, download the dataset, and check the instructions to join the Challenge :bell::bell:

See link to the report.

I hope you like it!!!

Remember a movie called “Hackers” ---- “Fight with the bests die like the rest”…

Always trying to improve.

Thank you very much.




Thank you for your kind words.

Left and right are normal slicers and the center is the new parameter function in Power BI another slicer.

No buttons in this one.
