Creating and Sharing a New Dashboard

Use the following procedure to create and share a dashboard.

  1. On the analysis page, choose Share on the application bar and then choose Create dashboard.

  2. Do one of the following options:

    • Choose Create new dashboard as and then type a dashboard name.

    • Choose Replace an existing dashboard and then choose the dashboard to replace.

  3. Choose Create dashboard.

  4. (Optional) If you want to share the dashboard right away, type the Amazon QuickSight user name of a person you want to share the dashboard with in the Type a user name or email box, and then press Enter. Repeat this step until you have entered information for everyone you want to share the dashboard with.

    You can always share the dashboard later instead, after you have created it.

    Note

    Users who receive access to the dashboard also receive access to the underlying data used to create the analysis the dashboard is based on.

  5. Do one of the following:

    • If you entered users with whom to share the dashboard, choose Share.

    • If you don't want to share the dashboard right now, choose Cancel. You can always share the dashboard later by using the sharing option on the dashboard page.

    The dashboard is created, and any users you have shared the dashboard with receive email with a link that gives them access to the dashboard.
