Building Dashboards

To build a dashboard, you select multiple graphs, tables, and/or external links to web pages or images. Dashboards should present an overview of available information for quick reference.

Note: To use a dashboard, add it to a template.
  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Web Analysis > Report Designer > Dashboards.
  2. Click New.
  3. Specify a name for your dashboard. The name identifies the template in Administration.
  4. In the Content dialog, add elements such as reports, dashboards, and external links to the dashboard. You can move elements around after you add them by dragging them to a new position in the dashboard layout.
  5. To add a table or graph to the dashboard, click Add Report, select a dashboard library from the list, and select one or more items in the list. The icon by each item shows whether it is a table or a graph and indicates the style for graphs.
  6. To add an external link to an image or web page, click Add External Link. You can customize external links to show a web page as an inset in your dashboard. You can also use macros to ensure the external link always shows current data.
