Creating and editing dashboards

You can create one or more reporting dashboards, and add cards containing charts (visualizations) to them for quick visual reference. You can also view public dashboards created by others, and share the dashboards you create.  

Dashboards can contain cards from multiple reports, which may or may not be public (reports have their own visibility setting).  Only cards from public reports, and those added from your own private reports, are displayed in the dashboard.

 

For more information about reports and charts, with step-by-step instructions to create them, see Creating and editing reports and charts.
