    Hello Abhishek and Dave,
    thanks for your feedback.

    We are aware that sharing a dashboard with different audiences (e.g. agents, organisations, groups, etc) currently requires to create multiple dashboards.

    We are actively working on how to dynamically adapt the content of a dashboard to a viewer so that you can build and maintain a single dashboard. We plan to ship it in 2021, I'll keep you posted on the progress.

    While you wait for a better solution, you can clone the dashboard and set up default values for filters with Bookmarks.
    You can learn more in the "Save default filter values via bookmarks" section of this article.

    Thanks for your patience.

    The same concept could be used across multiple areas for Explore.

    In this case, have the ability to add to the WHERE clause in every single dashboard call, automatically.
    WHERE e.g. assignee = {current user}. Just tag it on the end.


    Please also look to expand this to customer-facing dashboards [in the Help Center], and report schedules. But the WHERE clause would be e.g. WHERE organisation = {current user's organisation}.

    Zendesk Explore team. This is a serious and urgent request. Please prioritize this soon. It helps a lot of organizations to build dashboards for their agents in a generalized manner and the agents can see their reports without us sending an email to every individual in the organization.

    Hi Walter Bellante! I wanted to ask if the feature requested by Abhishek Chandranaik has been already developed and launched. If yes, are there articles available on it? Thank you!

    Hi Alberta Rosa,
    thanks for your interest.

    The feature is currently in development and will be shipped before the end of the year.
    I will keep you posted on this post once it's live.

    Hi Walter Bellante


    Is there an update on when this will be released please? This is a feature we urgently need, we have several hundred agents so creating cloned dashboards isn't really feasible.




    This is an absolute must have feature. Is this still on a roadmap or has it been abandoned?

    Jumping into this thread! This feature is very needed
