Managing content

Content is the king and the design of Biuwer empowers users to collaborate with data using three main components briefly defined in the Glossary: Spaces, Pages and Cards.

Spaces

Spaces are similar to folders in file systems and they act as containers of other elements, such as Pages and Cards. There are two types of Spaces: Personal Spaces and Shared Spaces.

Personal Spaces

Standard Users have their own Personal Space where they can build private content, for example, reports or dashboards for personal use or as a previous step before sharing any Card or Page with other Users.

Content inside Personal Spaces is owned and only visible by the connected User. In order to share Pages or Cards in your Personal Space, you have to move the element to a Shared Space you have access to, and then configure who can view, edit or administer the content.

Shared Spaces

When you create a Space in Biuwer, it’s a Shared Space by default. The security model follows the minimum access criteria, meaning that by default access is not granted to anyone. In order to give access to other Users or Groups of Users, just enter the Access settings dialog in any given Shared Space and establish who can view, edit or administer it.

Pages

Pages are mainly used as business dashboards, where a collection of data Cards are shown in a common environment in order to answer a set of questions regarding an specific need.

Use cases are infinite, but we give you here a few examples that current Organizations are already using:

  • Internet sales dashboard

  • Store sales dashboard

  • Call Center dashboard

  • Rentals dashboard

  • Projects dashboard

  • Results by Company and Business Unit

  • Logistic movements dashboard

  • Collection management panel

Cards

As described in the Glossary, Cards are the building blocks in Biuwer. They can be used standalone but can be also consumed as part of one or more Pages. This flexibility allows you to build many use cases depending on your specific needs, applying the Card filters and any Page filters as well.

Most of the available Card types are data centric, that is, their purpose is to show data in different ways (boxes, tables, charts, maps, etc.). We are always improving the Card catalog to enable other types of use cases, such as Forms, Formatted Text, etc.

For that reason we’ve built a Custom Card that can include any kind of logic to accomplish any data need or integration with third party apps. If you need any customization our data engineers can build any Custom Card for you.

Cards use cases are infinite, but we give you here a few examples that current Organizations are already using:

  • Detail of spending movements

  • Pending payments by provider and month

  • List of unpaid invoices

  • Employees by Company

  • Monthly Evolution of Average salary vs. Num. Employees

  • Annual Results Report

  • Current Year Sales vs. Previous Year Sales

  • Top 10 Purchases by Supplier
