Creating a shared dashboard


A shared dashboard can be shared to other users, roles, or sites. For example, if you create a shared dashboard for the site “Holiday Merchandise,” that dashboard is also available to editors working on any other site.

The following procedure describes how to create a shared dashboard.

  1. Click menu > Admin > Dashboards.
    1. From the Dashboard or Default Dashboard list, select Shared.
    2. Enter a name for the dashboard. This name is used internally to reference this dashboard.
    3. Add columns to the dashboard by doing the following:
      1. Click add_circle_outline to add a dashboard column.
      2. From the Widgets list, select a widget to include in the dashboard column. For a list of available widgets, see Standard dashboard and widgets.

    4. Add tabs to the dashboard by doing the following:
      1. Click more_horiz> Tabs.
