Know Your Dashboard

Posted | 1 comment

When you log in to your  Nimbus account, you will see the Dashboard. Dashboard in  Nimbus is made up of numbers, quick links, charts and other data points in a visual format that provides complete visibility into your business.

From the dashboard, you can track all important metrics in a retail or wholesale business that help you make quick decisions

Important: For admin users of multi-store businesses, the dashboard will show combined data of all shops (both autonomous and HO controlled).

Sales shop users can only view data of the stores they are attached to.

Note: If you are on any other screen, you can always click the Home tab to access the dashboard.


Let’s get to know the dashboard:
