    Why don't you start with the latest version of Pentaho, 6.1 now?

    I believe built-in dashboarding is an Enterprise only feature. In CE you could choose to install the Ctools plugin for your dashboarding needs.

    Sorry, no, if you find a CTools 101 tutorial let me know, because I'm stuck too.
    This book is good: https://www.packtpub.com/big-data-an...pentaho-ctools but it's not an step by step guide if you're knew to CTools. I began going through this book, but given my almost null knowledge of JavaScript, CSS and all that, it was taking too much time for me, so for now I have left it out, although I'll continue going through the book in the future when I have some time.
    For now I've been able to get by with Pentaho Reporting and I'm able to do my job with it. I had help (an external consultant) to build a basic dashboard that I use as Sample when I need to create a new one.
    I can embeb my Reports in the Sample Dashboard when needed just changing a parameter, and the rest of the Dashboard is some html texts and images I edit when I need to create a new Dashboard.
    The PDI and Reporting books where good for newbies, and I'm more familiar with the concepts in those tools, I just had to learn how to do things I already knew using Pentaho, but Ctools falls more out of my scope, so it's a longer project for me to learn it.
    Regards
