Build Your First Dashboard

This section provides steps to import data from a file, create a dashboard with a heat map visualization, analyze and manipulate data on the visualization, and share your results with colleagues.

To build your first dashboard:

  1. Open a blank dashboard.
  2. Show or hide panels used to create and format your visualization.
  3. Import your data from a file on your computer or network.
  4. Create a heat map visualization using your imported data.
  5. Format your heat map visualization.
  6. Create a filter to limit the data that appears on your dashboard.
  7. Add a second visualization to your dashboard. Create a filter that allows the selections that you make in one visualization to automatically update the data in another visualization.
  8. Analyze your data by filtering and drilling.
  9. Save your dashboard.
  10. Share your insights with colleagues by exporting your dashboard.
