As we go on the tour in this article, please remember that your account could look completely different than the screenshots you see in this article. You'll likely have different reports, different dashboards, and you might not see every feature depending on the type of user you are or what permissions you have. 

Dashboard Menu

The dashboard menu allows you to move between the dashboards you can access:dashboardmenu.png

Report Builder

Clicking Report Builder allows you to create reports on dashboards:reportbuilder.png

 Heads Up:

  • Many users do not have access to Report Builder so do not be surprised if you don't see this option.
  • If you are a Global Admin, remember that if you use Report Builder to create or edit reports on shared dashboards, you will change the shared dashboard for everyone viewing the dashboard.
