After completing the layout, refine the look and feel of the dashboard.
To refine the dashboard’s layout:
|1.||If it isn’t open, locate the Sales Dashboard saved in Adding a Custom URL to a Dashboard, typically in the /Dashboards folder.|
|2.||Right-click the dashboard name, select Open in Designer from the context menu|
|3.||When the dashboard opens in the designer, click Preview.|
The end user’s view of the dashboard appears. If the dashboard is already open in the browser, the server updates that page rather than opening a new window or tab.
|4.||In the Country field, select a new value.|
The Interactive Sales Report and custom URL frames do not update because the dashboard includes the Submit button.
|5.||Return to the dashboard designer and, on the canvas, hover the cursor over the Submit button. Click the hover border when it appears.|
|6.||From the context menu, click Delete Item.|
The Submit button disappears.
|7.||Reposition the Reset button to center it in the available space, then click Click to add dashboard title.|
The title becomes editable.
|8.||Enter Orders and Current Events by Country.|
The end user view of the dashboard appears.
|10.||Change the value in the Country input control.|
The dashboard reflects the change immediately:
Dashboard with Sample Reports and Special Content
|11.||Return to the dashboard designer and click Save > Save Dashboard. The dashboard is saved to the repository.|
