FitnessSyncer Dashboard is a reporting dashboard that allows you to see your health and fitness over time via graphs and charts. Quickly spot trends or anomalies in your exercise routines and stay motivated.
The Dashboard is entirely based on the data which you have in FitnessSyncer, so to get started with the Dashboard, add Data Sources or a FitnessSyncer Notebook entry.
You may filter your data using the filter icon , where you can remove duplicate data or select the sources used in the display. FitnessSyncer Pro users can also choose the types of activities they would like to be shown, such as only showing Runs, Swims, and Cycling trainings.
By default, we show the data in a weekly granularity. You can change this by selecting the graph by icon and you may choose between day, week, or month.
You can control the imperial or metric setting and time zone of the display on the Dashboard on your Profile. Note that if you have saved a copy of the Dashboard, you may need to manually change the data for the charts to reflect your preferences.
You can also share the Dashboard with your family, friends, and colleagues via the share icon . When you select this option, you will be asked if you wish to share the current Dashboard or all Dashboards, and will then have the ability to share the item on Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, or to post a link. You can revoke your sharing on the Sharing section of your Profile.
Users on our free tier can only see the most recent 30-day’s worth of data and cannot customize the dashboard. Learn more about becoming a FitnessSyncer Pro.

Most of the power in the FitnessSyncer Dashboard for Pro users comes in the ability to add your own charts to the dashboard and to edit the current charts to meet your needs. This section discusses the various options available.
There are 4 chart categories which will be discussed below:
Charts are graphical visualizations of your data.
FitnessSyncer has two types of charts, one of which can only accept one data element per chart. These charts include:
The other type of chart allows you to have multiple data items shown. These charts include:
Key Performance Indicators are summaries of your data into a single numerical value which can help quickly drive action.
To produce the single numerical value, Key Performance Indicators summarize the data first by data period (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly per the Graph By , and then summarizes each of the periods to produce a single end value.
There are three times of Key Performance Visualizations:
For the Key Performance Indicator, blood pressure and body mass index values will be colored based on whether it is considered high or not. You can disable this in the chart’s General settings .
For the Solid Gauge and Three Ring Charts, the numbers should be a percentage to make sense on the chart. Otherwise, the results may not make sense. If you are a user of FitnessSyncer Goals, we will automatically convert Goal-based metrics to a percentage based on the stated goal.
FitnessSyncer provides two different types of collections.
The first type of collection is the Preconfigured Collections, which you can choose from:
The second type of collection is the Preconfigured Table Collection, which you can choose from:
To help you create very usable Dashboards, we have included a set of UI components.
Report Navigation allows you to link a few dashboards together and quickly navigate to them by picking one.
When you select this option, the Reports tab will appear when you can drag reports you have previously created from the Reports Available section to the Reports section or to reorder items in the list.
Section Break divides sections of reports. It does not include any visual change on the dashboard itself.
Source Filter allows you to quickly filter based on a particular source based on its name. For example, if you name your Activity and Sleep feeds the same name for Fitbit, you can quickly filter the report to just the data from Fitbit using this option.
The Title item allows you to put in labels within the reports. In the General Tab you can enter in a Title, Subtitle, and for select accounts, Images.
The Chart tab is where one selects the chart type (as described above) and options for that chart. Options are based on the chart type itself and include:
The Data tab is shown whenever data is required.
If the chart requires a single item, the UI will be a simple data selector for the data type.
If multiple items can be used, you can add many data items to the chart or remove items from the current list. We recommend that you do not mix disparate data types, for example, displaying Miles and Kilometers data fields.
A few charts that require a certain number of data fields to be entered. For example, the Variwide Pie Chart requires exactly two data fields, and the Three Ring Chart requires at most three data fields.
The General tab is shown for various chart contexts. It includes the following settings based on the current chart:
Most charts will include a Filter tab if it works with data. These filters work identically to other FitnessSyncer Filters.
