You use the View widget configuration options to customize each instance of the widget that you add to your dashboards to display specific view.

How the View Widget Configuration Options Work

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

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, click Content in the left pane, and click Dashboards. 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. On the title bar of the selected widget, click the pencil to access the configuration options.
