Edit a dashboard.

Click the View dashboard as drop-down button button next to the View dashboard as field.

Choose the dashboard type:

* Run as specified user. The dashboard runs using the security settings of that single, specific user. All users with access to the dashboard see the same data, regardless of their own personal security settings. This approach is perfect for sharing the big picture across a hierarchy, or motivating team members by showing peer performance within a team. Unless you have “View All Data,” you can only choose yourself.

* Run as logged-in user. A dynamic dashboard runs using the security settings of the user viewing the dashboard. Each user sees the dashboard according to his or her own access level. This approach helps administrators share one common set of dashboard components to users with different levels of access.

 

 

When the dashboard is ready, click Save and fill in the appropriate fields. Be sure to save the dashboard in a folder your viewers can access.
