After creating a private dashboard, you can modify the dashboard and its widgets. You can edit shared dashboards only if you have write access. You can also make minor modifications to content pack dashboards, such as export them in PDF format, add them to lists, mark them as favorite, and so on.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have the permission to modify the dashboard. For more information about dashboard types and permissions, see Working with Dashboards.

Procedure

  1. Expand the main menu and click Dashboards.
  2. Locate the dashboard that you want to modify. You can search for the dashboard by entering keywords in the search text box or by using the sort, list, or filter functionalities. You can filter dashboards by content packs, tags, and creators.
  3. Do either of the following:
    • Mark the dashboard as favorite by clicking the star icon against the dashboard name.
      The dashboard appears when you:
      • Click the List drop-down menu in the Dashboards page to search for dashboards by list, and then click Favorites.
      • Add a widget to a dashboard. The dashboard appears under Favorite Dashboards in the Choose Dashboard drop-down menu.

    • Share the dashboard.
    • Duplicate the dashboard. Click the three dots icon against the dashboard name and click Clone.
    • Add the dashboard to a list. Click the three dots icon against the dashboard name and click Add to List. You can select an existing list or create a new list.
