Brightspot CMS User Guide

Shared vs. one-off dashboards

You can create dashboards in either a shared or one-off way.

  • Shared dashboards are built once and reused in many places, like other sites, other roles, or other users.
  • One-off dashboards are built once and used in one place.

Below are examples of one-off and shared dashboards:

  • A writer wants to keep a link to the department's writing style guide close at hand. The writer builds a one-off dashboard and ensures that the Resources widget is included.
  • A managing editor wants to give all reporters the ability to bulk upload images. The editor builds a shared dashboard for all reports that includes the Upload widget.
  • A site administrator wants all sites and respective teams to have access to analytics and site search data. The administrator builds a shared dashboard at the global level and ensures that the Report and Site Search widgets are included.
