Multiple Dashboards per table
Current TeamDesk implementation allows you to setup different dashboard per role. We've plans to enhance it with ability to have multiple dashboards for each table if needed.

From setup perspective we'll replace "Dashboard Assignment" with a "Dashboard Access" (similar to views access procedure):

After that if role has no dashboard access, system will display blank page, if role have single dashboard access system will display as overview page as you see it now, otherwise system will display overview page in following form:

So you'll be able to switch between dashboards using combo box at the top of the screen.

"overview page" lets you display a lot of data in one page. text, different sections of a table and so on.
as opposed to "views" that let you show only one table for each view.

I want to create a list of Overviews instead of a list of Views.

I offer to allow to have some dashboards (DB) assigned to table per role. Now only 1 DB to role.

And allow manage access to DB like to views. DB assigned to role is default (open when click on a table).

Also divide left side panel on 2 parts. Upper - for dashboards, below - for views.

Hi anatoly. Hard to read but yet I understand.
Yes I would have a good use for that right now.
For example I have a table of equipments to which i give maintenance.
I could have a dashboard to analyze warranty issues with data and graphs.
Anotherone to analyze type of failures also with data, summaries and grahs.

I think you should be able to make a Dashboard a View not just a dashboard. You should be able to create views that include multiple other views to create a report view. that way you could have them on your sidebar and click which one you would like to see

I don't completely understand the comment but I agree in the sense that dashboards are very useful and very much in vogue.

sub views or views within views to create a report is probably the only thing missing in my forms would love to start a rally on this one.

Yes, I would also like to be able to build and access multiple for a single table. I was disappointed when I discovered this wasn't possible.

One use would be a "Reports" tab, implemented with an empty dummy table. I'd like to be able to click the Reports tab, and access a list of dashboards in the sidebar at the left. Each dashboard would show several charts and reports from other tables in the application. It would give a really nice way to pull all the related data from separate tables that people want to see into central place with an obvious name (Reports), that provides really intuitive navigation between the various reports (just click the report name in the sidebar, the same way you'd load views on other tables).

I've created a Dashboard. This Dashboard include two View - Order, Order Detail. In the first View (Order) is a filter on the fields (<ask the user>). When executing a query automatically takes you to the Dashboard to View 1. However, I do not see View 2. For example, in View 1 has 10 records. the screen displayed 5. After move to the next records I do not see View 2.
This mode is functioning correctly?
How can I make preserves the original appearance Dashboard?

Is this live?
Rick Cogley 12/27/2010 7:56:04 AM
Cool, it is! If you just make another one, it shows up in a Dashboards section on the left. This is sweet!
Liquid Rapid 12/27/2010 12:40:25 PM
This new feature is *excellent*. Thanks! There are lots of places I can see using this.
gerardo garcia 12/27/2010 12:45:03 PM
super duper thanks
Scott Miller 12/29/2010 3:17:47 AM
guys is there a way to set a default dashboard to display as the primary view?
Slava Shinderov  Staff  12/29/2010 3:21:05 AM
@Scott no way, first one (alphabetically) that is accessible is displayed when the user clicks on the tab
Scott Miller 12/29/2010 3:25:41 AM
Ok Slava. Would be nice if it were!
Rick Cogley 1/12/2011 8:57:48 AM
We set this up right away. It works like a charm. Thanks again!

It would be useful to me if there were a "Show in menu" option on dashboards the way there is on views. In some cases, I'd like to create dashboards and link to them directly, but not show them in the menu.
