Create or configure a responsive dashboard

Create a dashboard where you can add widgets that you frequently use. You can then share the dashboard with other users.

Before you begin

Users with any role can create dashboards.


  1. Navigate to Self-Service > Dashboards or Performance Analytics > Dashboards.
  2. Click New.
  3. Fill in the following fields:
    Name Name the dashboard.
    Order Enter an Order number to indicate the order the dashboard appears on the dashboards picker. Dashboards with lower numbers are listed first.
    Active Clear this field to mark the dashboard inactive.

    Inactive dashboards are visible on the Dashboard Overview page and in the dashboard picker only to the owner, and users with the dashboard_admin and admin roles. Users with the dashboard_admin role have full view, edit, delete, and share privileges on all dashboards in the instance, including inactive dashboards.

    Note: When you activate responsive dashboards, the permissions associated with the non-responsive dashboard are carried over to the responsive version. This applies to both active and inactive non-responsive dashboards.
    Owner The dashboard owner. Only a user with the administrator role can change this value.
  4. (Optional) Click the Restrict to roles edit icon (edit icon) to specify the roles that a user must have to access this dashboard. For more information, see Share a responsive dashboard. Steps to create a new dashboard as a user
  5. (Optional) Users with admin, pa_admin, and pa_power_user roles can configure these additional fields:
    Group Click the magnifier icon to add the dashboard to a Group. Groups organize dashboards in the dashboard picker list. Grouped dashboards appear at the top of the list. Ungrouped dashboards appear at the bottom of the list, under Other.
