Creating Dashboards

Dashboards are a powerful tool to house the Channels and KPIs you frequently report on. Set them up once and return to them on a continuing basis to report on the latest data.

You can find your Dashboards at the top of the Measure section.

Creating a Dashboard

  1. Go to Measure and click Create Dashboard next to any existing Dashboard.

  2. Choose one of the predefined templates or start with a blank Dashboard by clicking Build your own. Hover over the templates for a brief description.


    Curious about the templates you can choose from? See all of the options listed in our Measure Dashboard Templates article.

  3. After choosing a template, you’ll be asked to name the new Dashboard in the top left.


    Choosing a descriptive name for your dashboard is a good practice, as this will help you find it in the Measure overview section. We recommend choosing a name that includes the brand, location, time interval, and your KPIs/objectives (such as 'Social Media Management CPH Weekly Engagement').

  4. Check the box beside any Channels you would like to include in your Dashboard.
  5. Finish the creation flow by clicking Create Dashboard. To fill out your newly created Dashboard with Widgets, be sure to follow the guide below on editing your Dashboards.
