Dashboards
In the overview screen of the dashboards menu, you are able to access and share existing dashboards or create new ones. On a dashboard, you can display multiple widgets. You can also set filters on a dashboard, which overrides the filters from the dataset and make the dashboard a flexible tool to display not only the data you defined in the dataset.

Sections, Layout & Breakpoints

Sections

As mentioned above, sections help you to structure your dashboard and you can apply a different filter on widgets if they are in different sections. If you are in the edit mode you can create and rename the sections.
Add, rename and delete sections.
Note that when the second section got added you gained the option to synchronize the scroll bars. Look for this option in the top bar, next to the breakpoint indicator.

Layout

By drag and drop, you can add new widgets and change the layout of the dashboard. By dragging the bottom right corner of a widget you can change its size.

If you want to have a widget in a different section. Delete it and drag a new one into the right section from the register.

Breakpoints

Depending on your screen size and zoom your dashboard will be within different breakpoints (you can see the breakpoint indicator in the top bar when you are in the edit mode taking values from XXS to LG). You can define a different layout for every breakpoint. Just zoom in or out until you are in the right breakpoint. Now you can change the layout and save it. Now this layout will be applied whenever someone within this breakpoint views the dashboard.

Dashboard View Mode

If you enter an existing dashboard (or exit the edit mode) you are in the view mode. In the view mode, one can only change the dashboard filters and time zone, not the layout or the used widgets.
Enter the view mode by exiting the edit mode. Show/Hide the dashboard filters.
By default, every section has a global timestamp and thing filter. Time zones or custom filters need to be defined in the edit mode (details in Dashboard Filters and Time Zones).

Widget Description

In the view mode, you can click on
(further options) of a widget to access the widget description via the
-button. You can define the information displayed in thereby setting the description of the widget in the widget editor.
