TallyFi Custom Public Dashboards: Beyond Just Numbers

At its core, TallyFi offers venues a straightforward way to monitor attendance. Our system tracks those entering and exiting, providing a real-time count. This data, by default, is private. We understand that for many, keeping this information to themselves is essential.

However, there are venues that wish to share their current count with their patrons. Maybe it’s a cafe sharing its occupancy during the brunch rush, or perhaps it’s a raffle showcasing the number of tickets sold in real-time. For these scenarios and many more, we’ve developed our custom public dashboards. If you’re looking to share this data, opting in is a breeze.

But let’s push the boundaries a bit: our system can be more than a digital counter. With some creativity, you can use it in ways you might not have first considered. For instance, while its standard use might be displaying the number of patrons, why not also use it to indicate an estimated wait time? By adjusting the pink and blue channels, it’s possible to both display the number of people waiting and estimate their wait time. It’s a testament to the versatility that TallyFi offers when approached with a fresh perspective.

Got a specific design in mind using HTML/CSS? We can integrate that directly into your dashboard without added fees above a standard level subscription. And if your ideas delve deeper or are more intricate, we’re on hand to discuss them and provide a quote to match.

To explore customizations or for any other queries, don’t hesitate to contact us at customdashboard@tallyfi.com. Whether you’re aiming for straightforward displays or innovative twists, TallyFi adapts to meet your vision.

Feature Spotlight: Notes

The events that occur during a particular day obviously have a big effect on your numbers. This week, we’ve decided to highlight “Notes” – a feature that will help you keep track of what happened and why.

A note is simply a centralized place for you and your team to share information tied to a particular day – for example, special event details (“VIP Visit” or “Beatles Concert”), or for daily operational logs (“ticket machine broke”, or “extreme weather”). There are two places you can get started with notes:

  1. From your main dashboard you can add a note to the current day by clicking the note button in the upper right hand corner.
  2. From the calendar view you can add a note to any day by first selecting the desired date and activating the “Add Note/Sales” button.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll be provided with a free-form text area that you can fill with whatever information you’d like. The text will be visible from the calendar view alongside your daily numbers.

Great! The next thing you’ll want to tryout is ‘Note Search’. Visiting the calendar page, you can use the search button to find all the days that contain matching text. For instance, say you are looking to review the last three times a particular event called the “Campfire Ball” was held.

Performing the search will list each of the times the phrase appeared in the note text, so that you can easily find important events and compare their impact on daily totals. For multiple venue owners, the search results include matching days across all of your venues, which makes it easy to track events that move between locations.
