Adding widgets to your dashboard

To add a widget, enter your dashboard and click "Edit dashboard".
Then, simply click the add widget button. You will be presented with a modal of all available widgets to add.
Use the modal to choose the widgets you wish to add.
The displayed list can be filtered (on name and description) for quick access to widgets specific to your needs. Learn more about the available widgets here.
Each selected widget will be added under the previously selected ones in the same column.
You can adjust the widgets by clicking and dragging the corners.
Use the move icon on the top right corner to change the widget's position on the page, and the resize icon on the bottom right corner to change the widget's size.
Once you are satisfied with the widgets you've added, save the dashboard by clicking Save changes on the top right-hand side of the page.
Data on dashboards can be filtered on two levels:
- The entire dashboard as a whole

You can edit the name, assignees, viewers, description and number of columns on your dashboards once they've been created by clicking the Edit button on the right-hand side of your dashboard list.
You can also clone a dashboard by clicking the clone button , or delete a dashboard by clicking the delete button .
