Link to new dashboard view from current Home Page

    Is there a way to point to the new dashboard from a link or button widget from a current page. It does not look like the new dashboards are available just the home pages. I want to be able to keep a current page view but have a link that points to a new dashboard view. Is that possible now ?

    If you go to the dashboard page there is a triangle icon at the top right that indicates share.  It will give you an option to copy and paste a crazy long URL onto your clipboard.

    Grab that and then go to your regular application homepage and create a button and use a button type of URL.

    That share button gives you some toggles to decide how you want the link to work and there is one for edits that defaults to off.

    I am attempting to add a button to my homepage, but it won't give me an option to link the dashboard.
    It only allows me to add reports or pages and the dash does not show up.
    Any ideas?

    Ok, this works but I don't want to give them the option to edit the the dashboard.  I just want them to have the view of the dashboard.

    I don't think that link will allow them to edit the dashboard unless they are an administrator.

    Hi Jerome,

    If you are using the share option for your dashboard they should not be able to edit that dashboard using the link unless they have admin permissions in your application. If you are seeing otherwise and users in your apps can edit the dashboards without admin permissions that is certainly something you would want to get in touch with Care about via a support case.

    Esther. No problem. Just select a link type of URL and use the tips elsewhere in this thread to get the right URL
