To create a new dashboard click on the big orange New Dashboard button on the Dashboard Builder Home screen – you can’t miss it!
Depending on what type of user you are, this can have different results as described below.
If you are a standard user, clicking on the New Dashboard button will bring up a screen that allows you to select an ArcGIS Online web map to base your dashboard on.
Click on a web map and click the Choose button. You will be asked to provide a title for your new dashboard and select a folder to save it into before you will be taken to the Dashboard Editor screen.
Data Catalog Users
If you are a user with access to our National Data Catalog, clicking on the New Dashboard button will bring up two options: from Data Catalog and from Web Map.
If you want to create a dashboard with data from the National Data Catalog click the “from Data Catalog” option. This will open a Choose Data Layer popup similar to the one shown below.
Choose a data layer. This will create the dashboard and open a New Dashboard popup.
Choose a name and folder for your new dashboard and click the Create button. This will send you to the Dashboard Editor screen.
If you do not want to use data from the National Data Catalog in your dashboard, click the “from Web Map” option from the orange button instead.
|Data Catalog Users
If you are a Data Catalog user, your Dashboard Builder experience will differ slightly from that of standard users in some cases. These cases will be flagged using boxes shaded this colour.
