The Dashboard is maintained by the technical team of the IATI Secretariat. It has grown out of various projects to track IATI data around various facets and metrics.
The Dashboard is updated every day, during the early hours of the morning, UK time.
This is is two step process:
The data is downloaded, and then there is a period of computing time to generate the statistics that inform the Dashboard.
Usually, there is a small period of time between the two. However, we do track this as sometimes things break - and the site fails to regenerate. If you spot something, please also let us know via via firstname.lastname@example.org.
No. There may be a number of reasons why a certain graph or number rises or falls.
In some cases, a fall in the graph may well be down to the fact that the Dashboard script failed to download the relevant data. This could be due to any number of reasons - and not necessarily anything to do with the setup of the IATI publisher.
Therefore, we stress to treat the graphs, numbers and statistics on the IATI Dashboard with caution, context and consideration.
Should you think something is really wrong, please contact us via email@example.com.
Yes - the source code is all open source: https://github.com/IATI/IATI-Dashboard/.
We advise you to check through the technical specifications.
Ideally, we’d suggest to check through the list of issues we have logged in our Github repository.
Alternatively, please email us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We’d suggest two initial checks:
With international timezones and large updates, it can sometimes take more than 24 hours before published data is used in the IATI Dashboard.
Should you still believe that data is missing from the Dashboard, we’d love to hear from you - please contact us on email@example.com
We set this system up as a public way to log and track issues on any dataset - so that data users do not discover the same things time and again.
To respond or create a ticket, just create an account at Data Tickets
When tickets are tagged with the relevant IATI Registry ID for the publisher, then these are pulled automatically into the publisher page. Once a ticket has been marked as resolved, it is omitted from the Dashboard page on the next build.
