|Always remember to hit the "Save" button to save your work.|
A Dashboard consists of one or more rows, each of which contains one or more panels.
The Dashboard display contains a set of control icons on each row allowing you to hide/unhide, position, and delete that row. To add a row, enter a title for the new row, the height of the row, if it is editable, and then click Create Row. After the row is created, it will appear in the table of rows, and you can click the up or down arrows to arrange the new row with the existing rows.
To add a panel to a row, click the + icon to the right of the last panel in a row; if this icon does not appear, the row is full.
You can also click the 'gear' icon to the left of the first panel. This will bring up the row configuration popup, where the last tab is 'Add Panel'.
When adding a panel, the configuration screen varies depending on the required properties for each panel type. From the Add Panel tab, all of the available properties of each type are displayed, allowing you to define the panel name, the data properties, and any queries that should be used to limit the data used in the panel.
When editing a panel, however, the view is split between three tabs: General, for name and size configuration; Panel, for the data properties; and Queries, for defining queries.
Nested Panel Layout using Column Panels
A column panel is a container panel for other display panels. The properties of a column panel allow you to define the panels you would like included.
Choose the type of panel, and then define the properties according to the type chosen. When you have finished configuring the included panel, click Create Panel.
Below the Add Panel to Column area, the configured panels will be shown as a list, in the order they will appear on the dashboard. From this list, you can change the height of each panel, remove panels, change the display order, or temporarily hide panels.
