You can open existing dashboards by selecting open dashboard in the initial view.
You can interact with dashboard visualizations in various ways. For instance, if the visualization is a grid chart, you can scroll horizontally and vertically. The chart view supports zooming and panning. Also drill down & drill up actions become possible if the underlying data model supports it.
View & Edit Modes
When first opening a dashboard, you will be browsing it in View mode. This mode allows you to navigate and filter the information displayed in it, but you won't be able to make changes.
To apply changes to a dashboard, you must switch to Dashboard Edit mode. You can do this by selecting Edit from the overflow menu in the top right corner of the dashboard. This enables editing options such as applying Auto Layout and a dashboard Theme. When you are finished formatting and styling your dashboard, click the check icon to save your dashboard.
Shown below is a dashboard in Dashboard Edit mode:
To switch back to view mode, you need to select the check icon in the top right-hand corner.
Once the dashboard is opened, you can maximize any of the dashboard visualizations by hovering over them and clicking on the arrow in the right top corner. The maximized view allows a larger display of the information.
In the maximized view you can also change the visualization type by selecting the small chart icon in the top right corner. Different visualizations are displayed based on the data that was used in the editor. Only chart types that work well with your data will be offered.
If at any point, you want to revert to the original visualization, you can select the "Show Original" link.
If you want to save changes you make to a visualization, you need to be in the dashboard edit mode and select the check icon in the top right corner.
Tooltips help you see values at a particular point on your chart. You can see tooltips when you hover over data.
By clicking, the tooltips will remain static. To close regular tooltips just click away.
When displaying tooltips, you can configure them to display total values by Category.
To enable this feature, go to Settings > Show Totals on Tooltip, as shown below:
When enabling totals, make sure you added a Category to show multiple values in your visualization.
It is possible to filter information at a dashboard or a visualization level.
Dashboard filters are available when you open Dashboard Edit mode. In the left top corner of the screen, you will see the current dashboard filters and an option to add new ones.
Visualization filters (a.k.a. Quick Filters) are displayed in maximized mode. You can find them in the top section of the visualization under the visualization's name.
Auto Layout for Visualizations
Analytics' Auto Layout dynamically sizes all visualizations in your dashboard based on the size constraints of your device and on the amount of visualizations it has.
To start resizing visualizations while Auto Layout is enabled, just drag their corners downwards or to the side. This will automatically turn Auto Layout off.
