Modifying dashboard attributes

  1. Click the dashboard tab to bring it to the front.
  2. Click the plus sign on the right-hand side of the dashboard's title and select Edit. The Edit screen is displayed.
    Note: The Main attributes tab contains the most common dashboard attributes duplicated from other attribute tabs.
  3. Specify this information:
    Specify the title assigned when the dashboard was created.
    Specify a description of the dashboard. This description is displayed in the dashboards list.
    This value is also displayed in the Content tab.

    Specify the URL that you want to display in the dashboard.

    Click Search to search for a URL. When you assign the dashboard a URL, the dashboard contains only that content and you cannot include content modules or content items in the dashboard.

    For more information about searching, see Searching for content items.

    Row Number
    The row number determines the left to right order of the dashboard tabs in the tab bar. The lowest number is always displayed on the left. The dashboard My Dashboards is preset to row -100. To move a dashboard to the left of My dashboards, specify its row number to a negative number greater than -100, for example, -101.

    Numbers range from negative integers, through zero, to positive integers.

    By adjusting the relative values of the Row Number, you can arrange the order of Dashboards.

    Specify the width in pixels or percentage for each column on the dashboard. The numbers should be separated by commas with no spaces. For example, 400,400 or 45%,45%.

    Use an asterisk (*) in the rightmost column to have that column occupy the remaining space on the right of the browser page. For example, 100,* or 30%,*.

    Optionally, you can click the icon corresponding to how many columns is displayed (one, two, or three columns). You can then modify the percentages.

    A total width greater than 100%, treats the right most column as an asterisk.

    Note: If your rightmost column can contain a right scroll bar, using * causes the scroll bar to be hidden. Instead, you can use a percentage ratio so that the total percentage is slightly less than 100%. For example, 30%,68% will allow 2% of browser width for the scroll bar.

    The number of columns that you specify in this field determines how you can move content modules with the Change Layout tool.
