How to Create a Dashboard?

A dashboard is a combination of visualizations and text boxes. For detailed instructions, scroll some more.

You can add a new dashboard via the Dashboard menu (bottom item will be New Dashabord) or via the home screen:

After naming your dashboard, you can start adding widgets to it from your existing query visualizations or create different commentary texts.

Select an existing query or add a text, you can select between 2 sizes - regular (half screen width) or double (full screen width).

Adding Visualizations to Dashboards

A dashboards is a tool to aggregate multiple query datasets, visualizations and texts into one nifty view. To add widgets to your dashboard, select a query you want to feature and the visualization you want for it. By default, queries results are shown in a table.

At the moment it's not possible to create a new visualization from the "Add Widget" menu, so you'll need to open the query and add the visualization there beforehand (instructions)

Grouping Dashboards

It is possible to group multiple dashboards in the dashboards menu. To do this, you need to follow a naming convention by using a column (:) to separate the dashboard group and the actual dashboard name.

For example, if you name 2 dashboards "Foo: Bar" and "Foo: Baz", they will be grouped under the Foo namespace in the dropdown menu.

Sharing Dashboard (view only)

You can share existing dashboards with external users (they'll see only the widgets, without the navigation and other buttons from the Redash app).

To share a dashboard, toggle the share URL and send the secret link that gets generated:

Embedding Dashboards

To embed a dashboard, add ?fullscreen to the sharing URL.

Dashboard Filters (flags)

If you’ve got queries that have some filters and you want to apply filters at the dashboard level (that apply to all queries), you need to set a flag.

You can do it through the admin interface at /admin/dashboard or manually by setting the column dashboard_filters_enabled of the table dashboards to TRUE in the Redash database.

If you are using the hosted service and wish to enable it for your dashboard/s - please contact us and send the URL of the dashboard you want to apply the filter/s for. Make sure to add filters to each query you want to filter in tat dashboard.
