Editor's Note: So very busy!

This month we've got some articles for you and new releases of our Chart and Gauge for SharePoint.

We're still posting interesting and helpful links to our Twitter account, of course: http://twitter.com/DundasData

The good folks in Marketing and Pre-sales Support have also posted new training videos on our Videos page, including an overview of the new features in Chart 7. There are nine videos there covering a bunch of different topics.

Our Consulting department has also posted a detailed article on The Art of Dashboarding. Check it out!

The Chart challenge!

The Chart Challenge continues!

Loads of people have tried the Chart Challenge! Can you stump us?

Do you have a chart you would like to see recreated with Dundas Chart? Take the Chart Challenge and send us your screenshot and we'll try our best to reproduce it.

Using Dundas Chart (and possibly Dundas Gauge, depending on your design), our crack pre-sales engineers will duplicate the look and feel of your original chart design.

Check out the Chart Challenge web page for examples of charts sent to us and recreated in Dundas Chart!
