You can create a new dashboard in several ways:
- Create an empty dashboard from scratch
- Save a copy of an existing dashboard
- Save a visualization to a dashboard from the Dataset Viewer
To create a new empty dashboard, click Build Dashboard in the left navigation panel.
In the opened dialog, select one of the suggested layouts and click “Create” button. If you’re having trouble deciding, don’t worry, you can easily change your layout later.
Dashboard builder has a title (1), controls allowing to save, customize, parametrize or add infographics (2), description block (3), and the main body (4) which may have any layout and contain different gadgets (5). To change the layout you can split or delete placeholders (6).
If you discovered some interesting dashboard at Knoema and want to understand how it is built or change it a bit for your purposes, you can save a copy of it and explore it from inside. To save a copy of an existing dashboard, open a dashboard and click Save Copy in the action bar under the title (if you want to save a copy of a dashboard with infographics, remove “/infographics” from its URL firstly).
If you build a visualization in the Dataset Viewer and want to save it to the new dashboard, click Open in new dashboard in the right Tools panel.
