    Hey Jacqui, 

    Are you using bookmarks to capture the desired time range in this dashboard?

    Can you please clarify whether I can use one link for all customers or whether I need to create one for each customer.    Shouldn't the visibility on the contact level control the data they can see?

    I love this option.  I am running into an issue with it though.

    I am utilizing this with a wallboard for the entire floor to see.  I have it setup on a screen/pc that never falls asleep and set with an auto refresher that hits every 3 minutes to keep the data updated. It works great for about an hour and then the data from the datasets stops loading after it refreshes, its almost like it disconnects from the dataset.  Anything on the dashboard that isn't pulling from the dataset still works.

    This obviously makes our wallboards not work if the data breaks after an hour.

     

    Any help?

    Hi Harold,

    No problem at all! I'm glad you're getting that figured out with our team!

    Hi Harold,

    This is a creative workflow! I like it!

    We did some testing and having a link to a dashboard in a Guide article as you mentioned did work when we tested. I'm curious if it is something permissions related. I'd like to take this into a ticket if you don't mind and do some troubleshooting with you directly?

    Let me know if you're still having this problem and if you'd like me to create a ticket for you to do further troubleshooting!

    Thanks!

    Hi Justin,

    I can't remember what the issue was now, but I think we did solve it.

    When I share a dashboard, are the contents static? For example, I share a dashboard the sums article views on Wednesday. Articles are viewed for the rest of the seek. If the person I shared the dashboard with runs dashboard, do they see updated results or the results from Wednesday? Do I have to re-run the dashboard and re-share it?

    When sharing a dashboard the time filters don't seem to work - data filters update as expected, but changing anything on the time filter doesn't update the reports. Is there any way to enable time filters to work on a shared dashboard?

    Could someone clarify the comment in this article that states:

    • Interactivity options are disabled when you share dashboards externally. For details about interactivity options, see Interacting with dashboards.

    The link takes you to the page discussing using filters and what not. This seems to indicate that the consumer of the shared report wouldn't be able to adjust the filters. However, when I tested it appears that they all work fine for the person with whom the dashboard was shared.

    I only see the public link (and end user email delivery) option on the legacy builder. The beta builder, which you have a time limit for all users to migrate to before you deprecate the legacy builder, does not have these options that I can see. Can you confirm? I need to be able to give links to our customers for them to view performance data related to themselves. How will this be possible after the beta builder is the only dashboard option?

    Hi Ilaria,

    I don't have access to the dashboard now as it was a client's one, but I think it was a mistake I'd made where I hadn't selected the right time filter.

    Frustrating that I can't remember exactly, I mainly remember the 'face palm' feeling when I spotted the rookie error!

    Hi Elissa, 

    Sorry for not responding sooner. I've created a ticket a while back and it's being researched by te Guide dev team. It probably has to do with hostmapping

    Hi, 

    When I "publicly" share a dashboard and add a password then the link works fine when I paste it in the Firefox address bar.

    However, when I put this link in a Guide article the same link doesn't work. It seems to redirect to our Guide homepage. Even when I check 'open in new tab' the link doesn't work. Again, when I copy it from the link and paste it in Firefox, the dashboard appears.

    Any insights? (pun intended for those migrating ;-) )

    @...

    It's too bad you need to setup a dashboard for each customer.  It would be great if you could create one dashboard to expose on the community and have it limit the results to the logged in company/user.   I have been embedding the password in the URL I send out but it would be nice for the customer to be able to log into the community and get this information directly.   We are looking at trying to create something through code but having to manage 600 dashboards is a nightmare

    I am an admin, but I can't access that feature in the admin panel. Am I missing something?
