  5. Publish list properties to a dashboard

You can publish list properties to a dashboard to enable users to edit list properties from a dashboard.

You must be a workspace administrator to publish list properties to a dashboard. You must also have a model role with access to the list that contains the properties you want to publish.

It's helpful to publish a list as a grid or as a page selector when you publish a list property. Alternatively, publish a module view that has the list as a dimension. This enables you to select which list item to amend the property for when you edit the property. If you do not select a list item, any edits apply to the property data for the first item in the list.

To publish list properties to a dashboard:

  1. Go to General Lists () and open the list that has the properties you want to publish.
  2. Navigate to the Properties tab for the list.
  3. Select the property or properties you want to publish.
    You can select anywhere in the row for the property or properties item or items you want to select. To select:
    • Multiple contiguous properties, select one, then hold down shift and select another. Those line items and all the line items in between are selected.
    • Multiple noncontiguous properties, select one, then hold down Ctrl (on a PC) or Command (on a Mac). Each additional property you select adds to the selection until you release Ctrl or Command.
  4. Select the View menu.
  5. Select Publish Selected Properties to Dashboard and either:
    • Select the name of the dashboard to which you want to publish the properties.
      The dashboard opens in Dashboard Designer and displays the properties.
    • Select New Dashboard.
      Follow the steps to publish to a new dashboard.
  6. Optionally, rearrange the dashboard elements:
    • To move a dashboard element, select it, then click and drag the blue Move handle to position it.
    • To resize a dashboard element, hover over the bottom right-hand corner of the element until an arrow displays. Click and drag the arrow to expand or contract.
      Note: You can resize all dashboard elements except actions, processes, page selectors, and list subsets.
  7. If the dashboard toolbar is hidden, show the toolbar:
  8. In the dashboard toolbar, either:
    • Select Save to publish and remain in Dashboard Designer.
    • Select Save & Exit to publish and view the published dashboard.
