One way to add a new dashboard tile is by copying it from another dashboard. Each of these tiles, when clicked, is a link back to where it was created -- either in Q&A or a report. 


You cannot pin tiles from shared dashboards.

  1. Get data. This example uses the IT Spend Analysis sample.
  2. Open a dashboard.
  3. Hover over the tile you want to pin, select the ellipses (...) and choose the pin   icon.

  4. Pin the tile to an existing dashboard or to a new dashboard. 

    • Existing dashboard: select the name of the dashboard from the dropdown.
    • New dashboard: type the name of the new dashboard.

  5. Select Pin. A Success message (near the top right corner) lets you know the visualization was added, as a tile, to the selected dashboard.

  6. From the navigation pane, select the dashboard with the new tile. There, you can rename, resize, link, and move the pinned visualization.
