Overview: Smartsheet Dashboards

Applies to

Smartsheet
Enterprise

Dashboards are the visual layer of your work in Smartsheet, and help you summarize and share important aspects, such as project status or, key performance indicators (KPIs) with stakeholders in a single place. Dashboards can also help you stay organized by providing a hub, or central location, for commonly used resources, like documents, links to frequently visited websites, and collections of sheets or reports.

Dashboards

Dashboards begin as a blank canvas, but take shape as you add interactive widgets to them, the building blocks of a dashboard. There are eight widget types to choose from that can be customized and arranged however you want to create the view that works best for your needs. 

To get started, create a new dashboard or use one of our pre-built template sets. Once you've created a dashboard, it's always possible to make changes to it later.

A dashboard also allows you to share information from reports with people who may not otherwise have access. As the dashboard creator, you can control this. For more information about how to configure widgets that pull data from reports, see Control Widget Content When Source Is From a Report.

For information about sharing your dashboard, see Sharing a Smartsheet Dashboard.
