What are dashboards?

Dashboards allow you to create shareable custom pages that provide a broad overview of the library's metrics. Dashboards can be used internally, or you can create public-facing dashboards to give your community real-time insight into the usage of their library's services.

Creating and setting up a dashboard

The first steps for building your dashboard are to create it and do the initial setup of the basic fields (name, description, friendly URL, etc.). 

Managing and editing dashboards

After you've created your dashboard and done the initial setup, the real work begins. Each dashboard consists of charts to visualize data from one or more datasets in your system. That allows you to have one row highlighting your circulation statistics, the next row showing a breakdown of your E-Resources, and a third row showing the gate count totals for each branch of your library.
