This short tutorial is aimed at teaching you the ropes about indicators on fabriq as well as the different ways to get us the data.

The basics 🎠

Every team in fabriq has a Performance tab in which a set of Key Peformance Indicators are displayed.

While many indicators may have homonyms (e.g. "OTD%" for team 1 and "OTD%" for team 2, each indicator is a unique data element with a unique ID. It is important to note nonetheless that a given indicator may be displayed to several teams. Case in point: as a site director, you may want to display the overall OTD% (On-Time Delivery) to all of the site's teams.

Finding an indicator's unique ID 🎫

To automate (or semi-automate) the upload of performance data, it will be essential to know the unique ID of each indicator whose data you wish to update.

Indicators and data points

- An end date (required)
