To optimize performance and give you the best experience possible, Explore includes some limits on your use of live dashboards and widgets. Use this article to learn about these limits and help you get the best from your live data.

Limits for live data widgets
With Explore Professional, you can add any queries you create to a dashboard. With Explore Enterprise, you can expand on this by adding live data to your dashboards. Explore Enterprise includes many live data query widgets that you can add to new or existing dashboards. For help creating dashboards using live data, see Adding live data and live filter widgets to dashboards.
To help you narrow the scope of your dashboards and to optimize performance, Explore includes the following limits on live data widgets.
- You can use up to a total of 30 live data widgets across all dashboards in your instance.
Limits for concurrent users
To ensure the best experience for all our users in your organization, Explore dashboards containing live widgets have the following user limits:
- The maximum number of concurrent users (users who can view an individual dashboard at the same time) for a live dashboard (or a dashboard containing live widgets) is 100.
- If a user doesn't interact with a live dashboard for one minute and 30 seconds, it will time out and stop updating. Once the user starts to interact with the dashboard again, it will continue to update as long as there are less that 100 concurrent users of the dashboard.
The session timeout applies to the slots available in the for maximum concurrent users. For example when a user's session times out, their concurrent user slot will be released for another user to take. When a user times out and returns to their live dashboard, if there is a concurrent user slot available, Explore will present the page to the user without any interruption.
