Lock Card Positions - Locks the position of all cards on a dashboard. Activate this feature by clicking the menu option in the Actions dropdown. When enabled, a checkmark will appear next to the Lock Card Positions menu option. Users will not be allowed to resize any cards or change their position. Additionally, changing the size of the browser will not alter the size or position of the cards. By default, this setting is not enabled. To disable, click the menu option again.
Auto-Refresh Dashboard - Enables this Dashboard to be refreshed automatically every 60 minutes in order for the most current data to be displayed. Activate this feature by clicking the menu option in the Actions dropdown. When enabled, a checkmark will appear next to the Auto-Refresh Dashboard menu option. By default, this setting is not enabled. To disable, click the menu option again.
Card Sizing - Change the size of all of your cards by clicking on the square icons at the bottom of the Actions drop-down.
The first square signifies that the Cards are displayed in a variety of sizes.
The second square changes the size of the cards to small, the third to medium, and the fourth to large.
Changing the size of the cards this way is temporary. Once you leave the page, your cards will revert back to the size they were previously. If you want to change the size of a card permanently you will have to change the size of each card individually.
You can get an in-depth view of a dashboard card by going to a card's View Card page. Here, you will be able to view, filter, share, clone, edit, and delete the data on the card. Each card can be individually viewed and modified.
