A dashboard is a project type that is only a single page of content used to display information such as tables, graphs, links, or others. Dashboards cannot be submitted and often display links to other forms, in progress workflows or even other dashboards.
Designers can also use conditions so that content can be customized to suit the user. For example, show finance reports to members of “FinanceAdmin” group only.
Some question types are not relevant for dashboards while others such as the Data Grid and Button questions have features only available to dashboard projects.
Dashboards can also be flagged as the default home page replacing the out of the box default home page with something more specific to the organization and/or user. For more information, refer to Data Grid in Dashboards.
Creating a Dashboard

- In Design, create a new project and select Dashboard as the Project Type.
- Design will open with limited question types and a single page for content only.
- Configure the Data Grid Display Fields.
Dashboards are also available in SmartIQ Offline App. However, when using the Data Grid display type, Document links and Form History links are not available.
(Optional) Add more data grids or Visuals to the dashboard.
