One-off dashboards

A one-off dashboard is dedicated to the user, role, or site for which it is created. You cannot share one-off dashboards with other users, roles, or sites. For example, if you create a one-off dashboard for the site “Thermostat Warriors,” that dashboard is not available to editors working on any other site. Similarly, if you create your own one-off dashboard, other editors cannot use it.

The following procedure describes how to create a one-off dashboard. (For an example of a one-off dashboard, see the illustration Dashboard components.)

Warning

If you replace a one-off dashboard with another dashboard, Brightspot permanently deletes the replaced dashboard.
