Dashboard Vs Report features

Hi There,

I want to know which is the best way to put across information to the uers, is it Dashboard or Report?

Coz, there are no filters on Dashboard, for any other details, information we need to come to Report page to see them, hence what is the use of Dashboard? Why should we just pulish the report instead of Dashboard?

 

Any though around this ?

 

Cheers,

Hi @goutambhatt85 ,

 

You could refer to this resolved case. Your reports may be complicated and you could pin the key content to the dashboard.

You create reports over your data model using the tables, columns and visualisation tools. You can't create a dashboard this way. Once you have a report, you can pin individual visualisations from a report into a dashboard - it is like a cockpit of individual visualisations and/or whole reports. Dashboards can have multiple tiles from different reports and different datamodels. When they click on a tile, the report opens.

Hi @goutambhatt85 ,

 

Dashboard is very good to use if you want to show different reports in one screen by pinning visuals from your report.

Try visiting the links that @amitchandak provided. It will help you a lot.
