About 360 Dashboards

360 dashboards are used for reporting on your subject data in aggregate. Admins can use dashboards to understand participation rates, areas of improvement, areas of excellence, and more across the organization. Each dashboard can contain multiple pages which, in turn, are made up of widgets that visualize your data. Dashboards can be shared with other dashboard users within your organization and set to only show them the information to which they should have access.

Qtip: This page is targeted towards Brand Administrators and Employee Insights Admins. If you do not have editing access to a dashboard, see the Dashboard Viewer support page.
Qtip: For individual subject reports, see Subject Report Basic Overview.
Attention: If your license has data isolation, then you cannot use aggregate metrics in your 360 dashboards. Using these metrics will cause the widgets to produce an error.


Granting Dashboard Access

Grant users dashboard access by using roles. Roles are the only way to give dashboard access for 360 dashboards; you cannot give access by editing an individual 360 participant. See the linked page for more information.

Adding & Removing Dashboards

You can add, remove, and copy dashboards in your 360 project in the Dashboards tab. See Adding & Removing a Dashboard for more information.

You can easily navigate to any other dashboard available in your account without exiting your current dashboard. To do so, click the dashboard’s name in the upper left-hand corner and select any other dashboard name. This will allow you to edit and view other dashboards quickly and efficiently.

Creating & Managing Pages

Exporting Dashboards

For more information about exporting dashboard content and the options available to you when exporting, see Making Dashboards Available for Export.

Filtering Dashboards

You can filter your dashboards by applying a filter to a page or by applying filters to individual widgets. This allows you to dive into the data and find trends that you would not be able to see with the data in aggregate alone. For more information, see Filtering Your Dashboard.

Qtip: 360 dashboards do not have org hierarchy filters.


Widgets are the graphs and tables that illuminate the data for everyone who visits the dashboard, and there are many different kinds to suit your unique reporting needs. To learn more about adding and customizing widgets, see the Widgets Basic Overview.

360 dashboards have a limited number of widgets. Available widgets include:

Unique to 360 dashboards, the simple chart and simple table widgets contain an aggregated metric, which normalizes scores across subjects to calculate department averages.

Mobile Preview

If viewing your dashboard in the XM App, the Mobile Preview option allows you to see what your dashboard will look like on a mobile device so you can optimize the design. For more information, see Mobile Preview.

360 Dashboard Data

Mapping data for 360 dashboards is mostly the same as it is for other EX dashboards. See Dashboard Data for more information. This section will cover the characteristics unique to 360 dashboards.

An important distinction for 360 dashboards is that you cannot modify metadata field names or add new metadata fields after you’ve created your dashboard. However, you can still update values for existing metadata fields by choosing Update All Responses with Current Metadata in Participant Options.

In addition, 360 dashboards do not support the following:

  • Text iQ
  • Comparisons
  • Benchmarks

Scoring Categories

360 dashboards support survey scoring categories for reporting in your dashboard. For more information, see Categories in 360 Dashboards.
