I’m having a discussion with myself that I decided to open up to the community. Four questions have been on my mind:
- How many of you actively use LookML dashboards?
- Do your users get confused when they are dealing with LookML dashboards vs User defined dashboards?
- Is it time consuming to recreate a User defined dashboard as a LookML dashboard?
- Are LookML Dashboards part of Looker’s roadmap? I’m curious because they seem to still use old lookML.
Where I’m coming from:
Since I started using looker, my team has always used looker defined dashboards. It’s GUI and easy. However, I’ve been caught in a situation a few times where I end up updating a dozen looks in a dashboard, which ends up taking a long time & doesn’t have a lot of transparency.
There are some situations where I’m thinking it would be easier to just have a LookML dashboard, so I can quickly make updates via code rather than manually updating Looks, but I don’t have enough experience with Dashboard LookML to know if that will end up being even more time consuming.
Just looking for thoughts from large-brained people.
