I am new to SP but I don't think that it is such a rocket science to prevent some "hit and try" for a person like me. So, the challenge I have is to build a site (with possibility of a dashboard) to showcase the resource usage on different projects. Each project will have 4-5 phases (SDLC phases for instance) and we need to show the resource usage along with those phases. On the other hand, each project will have a budgeted figure as well and we also need to show the total and consumed budget by multiplying no of days consumed with per day effort.
Once having above info maintained and showcased on a site or page, I need to build a dashboard showing charts with restricted access as this dashboard will serve the limited audience, mainly higher management. Can someone point in the direction as what kind of pages or sites would be needed to start with? If I get some detailed guidance to build one project and its phases end-to-end, will be of great help. Thanks!
