Dashboard is a default page you see after you log in.

Create a Dashboard

To create a dashboard:

  1. Navigate to Dashboards > Manage Dashboards in the main menu.

  2. Click Create Dashboard.

  3. Provide the following details in the form:

    A form for creating a new dashboard
    • Label — Name used to refer to the dashboard in the system.

    • Clone from — Choose an existing dashboard to be used as a base for a new one. If you want to create a dashboard from the scratch, choose the Blank Dashboard option.

    • Owner — Limits the list of users who can manage the dashboard to the users, whose roles allow managing dashboards of the owner (e.g. the owner, members of the same business unit, head of the department, etc.)
