You can use dashboard navigation to move from one dashboard to another, and to apply sections or context from one dashboard to another. You can connect a widget to widgets on other dashboards to investigate problems or better analyze the provided information.

To create a dashboard navigation to a dashboard, select Content > Dashboards in the left pane. On the Dashboards toolbar, click the plus sign to add a dashboard or the pencil to edit the selected dashboard. In the workspace, on the left, click Dashboard Navigation. If you create a new dashboard, complete the required previous steps of the workspace.

You can create dashboard navigation only for provider widgets. The provider widget sends information to the destination widget. When you create dashboard navigation, the destination widgets are filtered based on the information type they can receive.

The list of available dashboard navigations depends on the available dashboards and the widgets in the current dashboard. To add navigation, click the Destination Dashboards drop-down menu for the specified widget and select the dashboard and the widget to navigate to. You can select more than one applicable widget. Click Apply Navigations to apply the connections.

Note

If a dashboard is unavailable at the Home page, it is unavailable for dashboard navigation.

The Dashboard Navigation icon (Dashboard to dashboard navigation icon ) appears in the top menu of each widget when a dashboard navigation is available. You can select multiple objects to apply selections or context from one dashboard to another. Press Ctrl+click to select multiple individual objects or Shift+click to select a range of objects.
