Dashboard and counters#

How to create a dashboard?#

It is possible to create a dashboard from scratch, or to duplicate a dashboard and modify it later. A procedure is available to help you.

Is it possible to change the formatting of numbers in dashboards (1000 instead of 1K)?#

This is not possible. This formatting is necessary to avoid having too large numbers on the dashboards (space issue). However, it is possible to see the "real" value by hovering over the number.

Why don't the counters appear on my home page?#

If your counters are not visible, this may be due to your default entity. If this is not configured, the root entity is taken by default. If you do not have access to this entity from your profile, the counters will not be visible. From administration > users, set the default entity for the user concerned.

How do I share a dashboard?#
