Before going over dashboards, you should have a good understanding of analyses and how to create them. Find information about Analytics and how to create an analysis here:

What Are Dashboards?

Dashboards are collections of an analyses. When visualizing success or failure, groups of analyses are used, instead of just one, in order to highlight a particular scope of performance. Pulling analyses from a table or app data gives you a view of your operations from any range. You can customize dashboards to arrange analyses in your preferred order.

You can also edit an analysis from the dashboard by clicking on the three dots in the corner of the analysis.

Sharing Dashboards

You can share dashboards with colleagues even if they don’t have a Tulip Instance. They will have “view only” permissions and access to look at your presented data.

To share a dashboard, navigate to the one you want to share and click Edit in the top right corner of the screen. A pop-up menu prompts you to click Share and provides a link to copy and send to those who wish to gain visibility.
