My team uses Wrike to track our work because we are changing priorities on a sometimes hourly basis, while the rest of our company uses MS Project, updating only weekly or monthly and mainly focused on tracking costs. We need a way to allow more passive visibility into our workload each week without having to train our non-wrike folks on yet another tool (Wrike).
The idea we had came from the displays showing stats in our call center: a dashboard showing what we have recently completed, are working on now and later, and if we had any free time left in the work week. We want to show the basics of this info on a TV near our area (to avoid people walking up and asking non-stop) and we also want a more detailed version at a URL they can visit. The requirement is that there is only viewing available though, no need for log in or interaction. Just a quick run down.
I have been playing with reports as a possible solution for the display board, but the level of detail is either too much or too little, and this doesn't solve for the full web page dashboard view. I think the solution that will work best for us would be a web based or software tool that can pull data from Wrike and allow us to display it using a different layout. Has anyone tried this or know what tools I could use to implement this without a lot of upfront cost? I have access to hardware, plus developers and programmers that can help with the technical side, but I need a somewhat realistic plan to propose that includes basic hardware, software, and time requirements.
At this point, I am imagining a server on our LAN pulling the data needed from Wrike to a database, then pushing that to two places: a signage software tool designed for outputting basic info to a screen, and a basic web server loading the detailed data into a webpage. This would require some play time to get the info from Wrike, some time to format the data per the needs of the output programs, and a little time spent creating a format for both the screen and webpage. Any advice or input would be awesome, thanks!
