Create Shared Dashboards

Administrators can share dashboards with users in their region by specifying the name, layout, whether the dashboard is Active, and whether it should be available to All Users, Selected Roles, or Selected Users. Like personal dashboards, shared dashboards appear blank at first and must be configured by adding gadgets. Shared dashboards can be edited, configured, and/or deleted by administrators and other users that have adequate permissions.
