Dashboard Designer Add On dashboards offer an extensive library of visualizations that provide at-a-glance views of data for tracking metrics and drilling down into data. Select how you want to visualize your data and take advantage of our powerful query functions to precisely target the data to include and how to present it. In addition to being able to import dashboards, you can link your dashboard to internal and external Internet locations, as well as to other Dashboard Designer Add On dashboards.
