Create a dashboard

Before you begin to create your dashboard, verify that you are signed in to your organization with privileges to create content.

To create a dashboard, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Apps button Apps in the header of your site and click ArcGIS Dashboards.
  2. Click Create Dashboard.
  3. Provide a title for your dashboard.
  4. Optionally, specify search tags, a summary, and a target folder.
  5. Click Create Dashboard.

Add elements

Once you have created your dashboard, you will need to add elements to begin creating visualizations.

To add an element to your dashboard, click Add Add and choose an element from the menu, such as Map Map.

Add an element

Consider adding one or more map elements to your dashboard first, because a web map's operational layers can serve as the data sources for other elements.

After you add an element to a dashboard, hover over the upper corner of the element to display the menu. You can access all of an element's settings through this menu. The buttons on the menu are as follows, from top to bottom:

  • Drag item Drag item
  • Configure element Configure element
  • Duplicate element Duplicate element
  • Delete element Delete element

Dashboards can also be created from Map Viewer, the gallery, content page, or item page in your organization. For more information, see Create apps from maps.
