Creating a Dashboard Overview

Creating a dashboard takes two to four steps, depending on whether or not you want to 'keep it simple' or take advantage of the data source configuration filters, and widget design options.

The four steps are, in order of use:

Icons on the Dashboard Page

The dashboard user interface contains navigation links on the left side of the page, a central space that holds widgets, and tabs on the right for adding and configuring data sources and designing widgets.

There are two banks of icons at the top of the design space:

  • The center bank of icons (highlighted in "light red") applies to the widget you select.
  • The bank of icons toward the right at the top of the design space (highlighted in "blue") are for quick actions like, adding, saving, deleting, and sharing dashboards.
  • The three icons at the far right (surrounded in "light blue line") open panels where you can add and configure data sources and design widgets.
