Managing Widgets

This topic describes how you can edit, copy, and delete your dashboard's widgets.

Editing a Widget

When you first create a new dashboard (as described in Creating Dashboards) or a new widget (as described in Adding Widgets to a Dashboard), the Widget Wizard automatically guides you through Sisense's best recommendations for visualizing the data that you select.

After a widget is created, you can fine-tune/edit it in the Widget Designer. The Widget Designer provides a variety of options for changing the widget’s appearance and behavior.

See Fine-tuning a Widget for more information.

Copying a Widget

You can create a copy of a widget within the same dashboard or another dashboard in your list. This is useful for saving the original widget in the dashboard before making changes. The new widget is separate from the original so no changes to the new widget affect the original widget.

To copy a Widget within the same dashboard:

  • In Dashboard view, click the widget menu button in the top-right corner of the widget to be copied and select Duplicate.
  • If you are editing the widget, click the widget menu  button in the top-right corner of the widget to be copied and select Save A Copy.

To copy a Widget to another dashboard:

  • Select the Header of the widget to be copied and drag it to the target dashboard.

    When you copy a widget to another dashboard whose data source is another ElastiCube, the Dashboard filters of the new dashboard will not affect the widget.

Deleting a Widget

To delete a Widget:

  • Click the widget menu in the top-right corner of the Widget and select Delete. Confirm the deletion.
