Edit a dashboard

The purpose of the dashboard is to provide quick access to information. You can populate a dashboard with the following items in Adobe Workfront:

After you create these items and you add them to a dashboard, you can edit the dashboard to add more items to it, remove existing items from it, or edit the dashboard information.

Any changes made to a dashboard will impact all users who have access to that dashboard.

When you share a dashboard with users, all the reports, calendars, and external pages are also shared with the same users.

    note tip
    To learn how to delete a dashboard, see Delete a dashboard.

    note note
    When searching for an item, the search returns any of the 2,000 most recently created reports. Report names that include unicode characters are not returned in search results.
