Introducing Dashboards

A dashboard is a group of different summary or matrix report charts that graphically display custom report data. We can select up to 20 different custom reports to display in each dashboard, and we can arrange them in two- or three-column layouts. Users can browse through all of the dashboards that are available in the Company Dashboards folder in their organization and can also select a favorite dashboard that always displays on the Home tab when logging in. To put it mildly, users love the summarized view they get with dashboards, and no good Force Platform app is complete without at least one.
