Adding Dashboard

In the Manage Dashboard dialog box, click Add Dashboard.
Select the Set as a default dashboard, to set this as a default dashboard.

The newly created dashboard is listed in Manage Dashboard list. Once you create a new dashboard, you can perform following actions:

Sharing dashboard

You can share your owned dashboard that is available in manage dashboard list with any users or usergroups. The user or user group can only view the shared dashboard, refresh and resize the widgets. However they are not permitted to re-share or modify the dashboard, The user can only refresh and resize the available widgets. The user is allowed to clone shared dashboard, and the user will be the owner of cloned dashboard.
