Winner - Customer Portal Dashboard with Google Chart Tools

Salesforce.com dashboard components are a great way to graphically represent data. However, even though reports are available to Customer Portal users, dashboards components are (sadly) not. We thought we'd run a challenge to create one or a series of Visualforce components that could be used to mimic a salesforce.com dashboard in the Customer Portal.

Well, we did just that and corycowgill totally crushed it taking home $750. Check out both of his videos below demoing not only the final solution but the Apex and Visualforce Component as well. Awesome stuff!!

  1. Thanks Cloudspokes team. This was a pretty cool challenge and I enjoyed doing it! A few additional items I'd like to share with everyone:

    1. You can access this code on github: https://github.com/corycowgill/Google-Charts-Dashboards-for-Force.com

    2. The demo video can be found here http://www.screencast.com/t/6fuKbDtd0lak . Looks like for some reason the code dive video is posted twice. :)

    3. Keep up the interesting challenges Cloudspokes!

  2. Excellent. So, why is it so hard for salesforce.com to build this into their core offering?
