Add Report Widget to Dashboard

Our Movies Statistics Overview dashboard now has one report widget: Revenue by Production Company. Let's try adding another report widget to it. This widget will answer the business question: "How many movies are released each year?" with a Column Chart.

In Create a dashboard tutorial, we have added our widget directly in the dataset exploration workflow. You can also do this from the dashboard page.

Let's quickly go through the steps!

  1. Click Add โ†’ Add New Report.

  2. You will be navigated to the Dataset selection screen. Select the Movie Analysis dataset that we already created.

    You should see the familiar dataset exploration UI:

  3. Select Column Chart.

    • At the X Axis field, select Release Date and choose Year transformation.
    • At the Y Axis field, select the All Movies Count measure that we created previously
    • Click Get Result to view the resulted visualization

  4. Click Save to open the Save Report modal.

    Enter the title for your report, and click Confirm to finish.

  5. Once saved, you will be redirected to the dashboard. You should see two report widgets on the dashboard now. Try adding more!
