The Dashboard Navigator widget provides users with an easy and intuitive way to navigate to their dashboards. The widget can be used to navigate between dashboards by clicking added buttons. The navigation buttons can be added, edited, and removed inside of the Widget Editor.
The Dashboard Navigator widget is empty when added to a dashboard and must be configured to display buttons and links to other dashboards. The editor for this widget allows the user to add, edit, or remove buttons and configure the widget appearance. Open the Widget Editor by selecting the More Options icon in the upper right corner of the widget to display the drop-down menu and then select the Edit menu option.
Widget Title – By default, the widget title is Dashboard Navigator. The title can be modified.
Widget Color – The color of the widget can be changed using the Change Widget Themeicon to the left of the widget title.
Cancel – Select the Close without Saving button to exit the Widget Editor without saving changes.
Save – Changes will be applied to the widget by clicking on the Save button. The Widget Editor screen will close after the save operation is complete.
To add a new navigation button to the widget, click the Add icon on the toolbar of the view grid frame. The Dashboard Chooser will open. Select the desired dashboard. The dashboard will appear in the view grid with the dashboard name as the Button Text and the Dashboard ID field populated. By default, the Button Color is set to white and Open in a New Tab? is set to false (i.e., unchecked). The navigation button can now be edited.
Edit mode can be accessed two ways: (1) Select the row in the view grid and then click the Edit icon on the toolbar of the view grid frame, or (2) double click the row in the view grid. The user can set navigation button text, button color, and if the dashboard should open in a new tab. To save edits to the dashboard button, click the Save icon on the toolbar of the view grid frame. Changes will not persist if the user only clicks save in the Widget Editor without first saving the changes in the view grid.
If a navigation button needs to be deleted, select the row in the view grid and then click the Delete icon on the toolbar of the view grid frame. The selected button will be deleted.
