Dashboard Metadata


Dashboard Metadata is only available for Dashboard 3.0 and is not visible in Sharable Links and Embedded Analytics.

You can find useful information about your dashboard by clicking on More Info, which includes:

  • Dashboard description
  • Created time & person
  • Last edited time & person
  • Frequent viewers - Top 5 users who view the dashboard most frequently in last 30 days (excluding public users)
  • Views - The number of dashboard views in last 30 days
  • Favorites

Admins can hide the metadata in case of security risks. Find the option in Organization Settings > General Settings.

Add Dashboard Filters

The basic steps to add a new dashboard filter are:

  1. In the dashboard, click on Add filter icon on the top right corner. The Add filter view will appear.
  2. Enter the name of your filter, and choose from the five types of filters (Field, Date, Text, Number, True/False).
  3. Enter a default value for your filter if necessary.
  4. Toggle on the widgets that you want to control, and map the filter to a widget's field Notes:
  • You can only map the filter to fields of the same data type.
  • You can map the filter to any field available in the widget's dataset, not just the ones you used to create the visualization.

Export your Dashboard

You can either download your dashboard as a static PNG/PDF snapshot, or set a schedule to deliver the snapshot regularly to you. Please refer to the Data Export for more details about this feature.

Share your Dashboard

You can give users in your organization access to a dashboard, or share it with an external party with a shareable link. For more details, please refer to the Permission System and Shareable Links documentation pages.
