What does it mean to share a dashboard template?

Modified on: Mon, 17 Jan, 2022 at 11:12 AM

The Siteimprove Intelligence Platform (SIP) now provides global and customizable dashboards.

Once you have created a useful dashboard for your own use, it's possible to share the dashboard template with other organizations who subscribe to Siteimprove. You need to be an Account Owner or Administrator to create dashboards.

For example, if you have created an Analytics dashboard with a selection of widgets that would be useful to other organizations, you can share the dashboard template with them.

Note: To share a dashboard with users on your own account you can configure the dashboard as shared. See: Configuring Siteimprove Dashboards and Dashboard reports

To share a dashboard template:

  1. Select Actions > Share dashboard template.Share_dashboard_template
  2. Use the Copy link button.Share_a_dashboard_template
  3. Send this link to a user logged in on another Siteimprove account (or switch account).
  4. Open the copied link in the browser window.
  5. Click the Import button to see the newly imported dashboard.Import_a_dashboard
  6. Select a site to view the dashboard presenting widgets that correspond to the new account.

When a Dashboard template is shared, it is essentially a replica of the dashboard at that point in time. Any subsequent changes made to the original dashboard will not be reflected for those who have already imported the dashboard template. 

Note: Any account specific dashboard widgets will be empty and can be re-configured for the new account using the edit option in the top-right corner of the widget. Also, an imported dashboard is available to the user importing, i.e. 'only me', by default. You can change the access afterward by editing the dashboard settings.

Check out the Dashboard template library for a list of commonly used dashboard report templates.
