There are 2 types of tiles you can add to dashboards:

  • Visualizations, which adds a new look to your dashboard. If you want to add an existing look to your dashboard, see Add an existing look to a dashboard instead.

  • Text, which displays static text in your dashboard. For example, you could add a text tile to provide context or instructions for other users.

The sections below include instructions for adding each type of tile.

To add a text tile:

  1. Open the dashboard in edit mode. To learn how, see Edit a dashboard.
