Visualizing Torch Budget Data Any Way You Want

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

One of the great things about Torch Project Management being a Google Visualization Data Source is that people see their information in a way that works for them.

Let's say I'm responsible for three employees: Joe, Ben and Jane. Let's also assume I'm a visual person and prefer charts to numbers. Well, I could get pie charts showing what projects my team is involved in (I did this visualization in iGoogle, but I could do it any enlivenment that supported Google Gadgets):

But, what if I'm not responsible for people but a particular project. Well, here I just want to keep an eye on all of the projects (showing the numbers instead of a chart of some kind) and showing a detail view on one particular project:

But if neither of these work for you, that's ok, you can use any visualization you want. How do you visualize your data?
