Add a Widget to a Dashboard (General)

Use the Dashboard Editor to add one or many Widgets to a Dashboard simply by dragging them onto your Dashboard.

Good to know:

To add a Widget to a Dashboard (general):

  1. Open a Dashboard in the Dashboard Editor.
  2. Drag-and-drop a Widget from the Widget pane onto the Dashboard.
  3. Configure/edit the Widget properties, if needed:
    1. Right-click the Widget, and then select Widget Properties.
  4. After the Widget or Widgets are on the Dashboard, use the Dashboard Editor to define how each Widget looks and behaves on the Dashboard (ex: Text properties (font, font size, font style, text wrap), size, color (background, foreground, and border), background style and gloss, border style, alignment, anchoring, layering, and visibility).
  5. Continue making changes, or click OK to save and close the editor.

    Note: For detailed information about adding the different types of Widgets, see Add a Button Widget to a Dashboard, Add an Image Widget to a Dashboard, Add a Link Widget to a Dashboard, Add a Text Widget to a Dashboard, and Add a Shape Widget to a Dashboard.
