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.

      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.

      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?

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