Dashboards provide an overview of the entire community from a single, comprehensive source. Dashboard, more typically both offers actionable insights and lets you take actions accordingly. You can analyze community engagement, see who the top contributors are, check out how many new members joined, and even compare community performance in a given timeframe.

Depending on what insights you can see, a dashboard also gives you the option to act on that data. You can send Direct Messages (DMs), Reply to posts, react to messages, and just basically be on top of what’s going on in the community.

For example - Threado’s dashboard gives you complete control over your community. You can engage, get actionable metrics, provide support, and even automate critical community processes like onboarding, activation, engagement, and retention.
