    Hi,

    Basing on your second point: 2)Try to understand client business and try to give better model than client suggest.

    How a model dashboard is built? Is it using microsoft excel as the dummy source or to built a model, is it required to have connection type.

    Regards

      Hi Ranendra,

      You can either ask client to provide some sample data or you can manually put some data(dummy source) and create a dashboard model.
