Standardize on how to capitalize in names and labels, for example:
- Financial Summary rather than “Financial summary”
- Net Recurring Benefits rather than “Net recurring benefits”
Metric Names and Types
- Consider using consistent metrics names that describe the metric appropriately:
- e.g. Net Recurring Benefits, Recurring OPEX Costs, Net OPEX Benefit
- Avoid using timeframes in a metric name as you may well be be displaying it in different timeframes (e.g. Net Recurring Benefit (month)).
- Consider creating metrics as numbers rather than a specific currency and include the currency in the metric name. In most cases users don’t want to see the currency symbol in dashboards.
