Curious how to build a Dashboard Widget? Start by watching our Dashboards training video here if you haven't already done so, or follow these simple steps below:
- Go to "Dashboards" and click on the purple button located in the bottom right-hand corner.
- Select which type of Dashboard you would like to build and click "Build Dashboard" (you'll select searches to pull content from and name your dashboard)
- If you are building a Custom Dashboard, you will immediately see the "Add Widget" button pop up at the top of the page. If you are building a pre-set dashboard, you will click on the "edit" button located at the top right corner of the page and you will then see the "Add Widget" button appear.
- Select which type of widget you'd like to add (see this article here to learn more about your widget options) and then click on "Add to Dashboard"
- Configure your widget by selecting your inputs, searches, tags, and applying specific filters
- Click on "save" when you are finished with your widget criteria. You can hover your mouse over your widget and click on the arrow to open up the widget, examine the results, or export the results (you must open up the widget for the exporting option).
