The purpose of a dashboard is to provide quick access to information. You can gather information in reports and you can then place them on dashboards to make the information easier to access.
You can populate a dashboard with the following items in Workfront:
For more information about creating reports, see "Creating a Report."
For more information about creating calendars, see "Creating and Managing Calendars."
- External Pages
For more information about creating external pages, see "Embedding External Web Pages to Dashboards.
For more information about creating a dashboard, see "Creating Dashboards."
You can share a dashboard with users in the following ways:
- Individually, through sharing
For more information about sharing dashboards, see "Understanding Permissions on Reports, Dashboards, and Calendars" and "Sharing Dashboards."
- Add a custom tab to any area or object in Workfront and add a dashboard to it.
For more information about creating custom tabs, see "Creating Custom Tabs."
- Place the dashboards on layout templates which you can share with users.
For more information about sharing dashboards through layout templates, see "Creating and Managing Layout Templates."
- Print them to a .pdf file so you can email it or print a hard copy of them.
For more information about printing dashboards, see "Printing Dashboards."
When you share a dashboard with users, all the reports, calendars, and external pages that are on the dashboard are also shared with the same users, by default.
