Introduction to building Klip dashboards

Here are a few things to note about the Klip dashboard user interface:

  • Your list of active dashboards always displays under Dashboards, giving you fast access to the dashboards you use the most.
  • Clicking Dashboards brings you to your list of all dashboards - think of this as your dashboard master list, where you can see details for each dashboard, rename or permanently remove dashboards, and open (add) to your list of active dashboards.
  • You can remove dashboards from the active list by selecting the dashboard, clicking its 3-dot menu, and selecting Hide from list (the dashboard will still be accessible from your master list of dashboards).
  • Multiple instances of the same dashboard can exist in your left navigation bar to allow a user to filter the same dashboard according to different criteria. You can have multiple instances of the same dashboard open if you open the same dashboard multiple times from the dashboard list page.

Working with Klip dashboards

Klip dashboards are used to organize and display Klips. You can access all of your Klip dashboards (from your master list of dashboards) or only the ones that are currently active (from the list of open dashboards in the left navigation bar).

This article focuses on general settings and editing options for dashboards, including the following:

How do I see the details for a dashboard?

The About this dashboard page includes details for each dashboard, such as its name, description, owner, time last updated, dashboard usage, and ID. Learn more here.

To access the About this dashboard page:

  • In an open dashboard, click the 3-dot menu and click About this dashboard.

How do I add a new dashboard?

Start from scratch by adding a blank dashboard and then populating it with Klips.

Each dashboard can contain up to 30 Klips.

To add a blank dashboard, click the + button beside Dashboards or click Dashboards > Add a Blank Dashboard. Your new dashboard will instantly be added to the end of your active list of open dashboards in the left navigation bar as well as your master list of dashboards.

To add Klips to a blank dashboard:

  1. With the dashboard open, click the button.
  2. Either click My Klips, to select an existing Klip from your list of Klips, or select a pre-built Klip from the Klip® Gallery, or click Build a Custom Klip, to build your own Klip from scratch.
  3. Continue adding Klips as desired.
