Using Geckoboard with HelpSpot
February 14, 2013
Geckoboard in Action One of the cool tech toys I’ve been introduced to at my job is called Geckoboard. It’s a nice slick website that allows you (or your company) to have a custom web-based dashboard with whatever data you want. Geckoboard is cool, but the power lays in its ability to be used for custom widgets. With these custom widgets, you can push/pull data from any source you want and have it displayed on your dashboard. My IT department runs HelpSpot for ticket tracking and I really want to have a more visual feel for how things are going. Since Geckoboard doesn’t have built-in widgets for HelpSpot, this seemed like the perfect time to write some PHP and run my own custom widgets.
