You can use the Geo widget configuration options to customize each instance of the widget that you add to your dashboards in vRealize Operations Manager.

How the Geo Widget Configuration Options Work

You edit a Geo widget after you add it to a dashboard. The changes you make to the options help create a custom widget to meet the needs of the dashboard users.

On the Dashboards toolbar, click the plus sign to add a dashboard or the pencil to edit the selected dashboard. In the Dashboard workspace, on the left, click Widget List, and drag a widget to the right pane of the dashboard.
