Contest Dataset & Dashboard Purpose:

Please download the Awesome Chocolates Dataset using the link inside the teams community.?


The purpose of the dashboard is to inform the CEO of Awesome Chocolates about the performance of our business in the last 13 months. The dataset contains daily shipment data from 2023 February to 2024 February. Here are a few things our CEO is interested in, but she likes surprises too. So get creative.

  • How sales, units, shipments, profit, profit%, low-box shipments (shipments with box count under 50) trends are looking
  • A detailed performance understanding at product or salesperson level
  • Interesting patterns in product / geography data
  • Ability to drill down to details if needed.

You are encouraged to use various powerful interactive features of Power BI like tooltips, bookmarks, DAX, conditional formatting, pictures and anything else you might fancy. Again, get creative and showcase what you can build, but stick to one standard sized Power BI page.

When is the deadline?

You should submit your Power BI dashboard by  30th of April, 2024 (end of day, pacific time).

Remember, only one dashboard per person.

How to submit my entry?
