Set up a dashboard

Set up one or more dashboards in the Dashboard module to suit your product and team needs.

Dashboards are also available in the Overview tabs of the Backlog, Quality, and Pipelines modules.

Create a dashboard

You create and manage dashboards in the Dashboard module. Each dashboard opens in a tab. You can have up to 10 dashboard tabs open simultaneously, and switch between tabs without losing context.

Choose from several built-in dashboard templates, or create a custom dashboard with your own selection of widgets. You can add up to 30 widgets in a single dashboard.

For details on using dashboard templates, see Dashboard templates.

To create a custom dashboard:

  1. In the Dashboard module, on the toolbar, click + to open a new dashboard tab.
  2. In the new tab, select + Create new dashboard.
  3. Click + Add widget.
  4. In the Widget Gallery, select a pre-configured widget or create a customized widget:
    • To use a pre-configured widget, select a category and a widget within the category.

      Tip: If you are not sure which widget to use, read the widget descriptions to see which questions the widget helps answer.

    • To create a customized widget, click Add custom graph and configure the widget. For details, see Configure widget settings.
  5. Click Add to Dashboard. The widget is added to a new dashboard, and the dashboard tab prompts you to enter a name for the dashboard.

    To change the dashboard name later, click the Edit tab name button in the dashboard tab.

  6. To add another widget, click + Add widget in the dashboard toolbar. Repeat as necessary.

The selected widgets and layout are retained between sessions.

Change the dashboard layout

The size and position of the widgets in the dashboard is determined by the dashboard layout. To change the layout, in the dashboard toolbar, click the More buttonand select Change layout. Select your preferred layout for the dashboard, and drag and drop widgets as needed to reposition them.

When a section of the layout is empty, there is a large gap enabling you to drag a widget into that section. If you plan to leave a section empty, you might want to consider using a different layout instead.
