Design a Scheduler without adding a Data Source

Is it possible to successfully design a Dashboard like the one that can be seen in the November 2016 Webinar YouTube video (Hospital Manager) without linking a data source?

I only recently picked up Syncfusion and I have very limited experience with any coding languages but I am hoping to design the dashboard for use on a tablet (unsure which OS) and on Windows desktop.

I still need to research how to compile a database of information and how to link it to the Dashboard.

Hi Nathaniel, 
                To work with Dashboards, a data source is mandatory. Dashboards are mainly used for visualizing the data for better understanding of the underlying data. With Syncfusion Dashboard platform you can connect to a wide variety of data sources ranging from SQL Server to basic excel or CSV files. 
Please refer our online documentation for information about the data sources that we currently support. https://help.syncfusion.com/dashboard-platform/dashboard-designer/overview . 
To design a Dashboard, you can make use of our Dashboard Designer application. Please find the online documentation https://help.syncfusion.com/dashboard-platform/dashboard-designer/getting-started  
Being an HTML 5 ready Dashboard viewer can be embedded in a wide variety of platforms. All it requires is an HTML 5 ready web browser or a web view. Please refer the documentation on Dashboard Platform SDK https://help.syncfusion.com/dashboard-platform/dashboard-sdk/overview . 
If you still have trouble in kick starting with dashboards, you can play around with the sample dashboards that we have hosted in the link https://dashboardserver.syncfusion.com. You can download the sample dashboards and view them in our Dashboard Designer application to get a better understanding of Dashboard Creation. 
Please find the walk around video for designing dashboards from our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caMB3K3CsHo
