Adding and editing dashboards and tabs

Tip: Currently you cannot customize the order of the dashboards in the drop-down list in Insights. The list appears in alphabetical order.

Adding dashboard filters

You can add filters to your dashboard to permit users to limit the data they view on your reports. There are three types of filters you can use on your dashboard:
  • Attribute: Filter by values of a selected attribute. For example, you can only show results for Incident tickets by adding the Ticket Type filter and selecting the Incident value from the drop-down list. For more information, see Filter for attributes on GoodData's site.
  • Date: Filter by a selected date or date range. For more information, see Filter for dates on GoodData's site.
  • Group: Filter results using multiple filters simultaneously. The filters you select will be applied at the same time. For more information, see Set Up a Filter Group.

Changing dashboard visibility

When you first create a dashboard or report, it is automatically hidden from everyone. However, through changing Visibility permissions, you can decide who has access to your dashboard and who doesn't.

Making dashboards visible to users

After you create your dashboard, you can make it visible to everyone or only specific users. Your dashboard will not be visible until you change Visibility permissions.
Note: You cannot set different permissions for each tab. For more information, see Can I provide users access to specific tabs within a restricted Insights dashboard? in our Support tech notes.
  1. On your dashboard, click the Settings icon ( ).
  2. In the Settings drop-down menu, select Sharing & Permissions

     

  3. In Sharing & Permissions you can either select Everyone can access to make the dashboard visible to everyone, or add specific users to the dashboard.
  4. You can hide reports again by:
    • Clicking the X next to specific users names.
    • Selecting Specific users can access option.

Adding specific users to the dashboard

  1. Select the Specific users can access option in the Change Visibility drop-down menu.

     

  2. Click the Add Users button at the bottom of the box.

     

  3. You can search for a specific name, or scroll.
  4. Click Share.

    Hi!,

    I created a dropdown ticket field, with a few values, like the default field "type".

    I need to create a report about how many tickets are solved on this values. 

    For example, how many tickets are solved on "incident", how many on "question"... but with my own values.

    How I can do this? I need help.

    Hi Alberto!

    Once solved tickets exist with values in that field, that data will automatically sync over to Insights and you can create a report with it. You can find more detailed information on how to do this here: Reporting on custom fields in Insights (Professional and Enterprise).
