Suggestion on Single Clik Preview of DashBoards RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • In developing dashboards you are typically in Edit mode from the ribbon.
    However, there is a constant need to preview the results. Preview is available from Edit mode, but first you must switch to home mode,  press publish all or press publish this element, then switch back to edit mode to invoke the preview. During preview you have to do a series of selections which are usually repetitive.

    How about a single clik "Preview this dashboard" button?

    Again, thanks for this forum.

  • Hello Richard,

    I wanted to let you know of one thing you can take advantage of while you are working on a dashboard. Once you deploy a dashboard to the preview site then you actually do not need to redeploy that dashboard again unless you make changes to the dashboard item itself. If you are modifying a scorecard, a KPI, a data source or a report of some sort then you can just refresh the web page that has that dashboard up and the changes will be picked up. Hopefully that helps.
