Save your queries to dashboards in order to categorize and display your analysis effectively. You may also choose between a variety of visualization options. This article will cover these different visualization options that are available for dashboards, as well as how to add queries to dashboards. For more information on how to manage your dashboards, see this article.
Organize your Dashboard
When you save your queries to a dashboard, your analysis is placed wherever there is space on your dashboard. You'll naturally want to reorganize your dashboard widgets so that your analysis makes sense within the context of your dashboard. To reorganize analysis on your dashboard, simply drag and drop the widgets in whichever order you desire.
In order to resize your widgets, simply click on the bottom right corner of a widget, and drag to resize. Drop when your widget is sized to your desire.
Widget Layout Flow
In your Dashboard Settings, you may also toggle your Layout Flow between Free Flow and Auto Flow.
- If your dashboard is in Free Flow mode, then each widget can be placed anywhere within the dashboard.
- If your dashboard is in Auto Flow mode, then each widget can only be placed where there is space within the dashboard.
Often, you'll want to keep a dashboard open on a shared screen so that everyone is aware of KPIs in real time. To display a dashboard in full screen, navigate to the menu bar above your dashboard, and click the "Full Screen" button.
Your Dashboard widgets will update at regular intervals, as indicated by your Refresh Interval settings.
You may also keep your dashboard in print mode. This is especially useful for dashboards that are printed on a regular basis, or for dashboards that are to be rendered in a Report. To toggle your dashboard to print mode, click on the "Manage" dropdown in the top right, and select "Dashboard Settings". From the sidebar, toggle the Dashboard Layout Mode from Screen to Print.
Once your dashboard is in print mode, you may print your dashboard by clicking "Print" in the menu bar above your dashboard.
