    • Create a Dashboard from Scratch: Create New Dataset: Start from a blank dashboard. When you choose this option, the first thing you’ll be asked to do after saving is map a source to the dashboard. You’ll be able to choose from all the surveys in your account.
    • Create a Dashboard from Scratch: Copy Dataset from Dashboard: Start from a blank dashboard, but copy your data set from a dashboard you previously made. This is a great option if you want to use the same data and similar field names, types, and mappings that you did in the past.

Copying Dashboards within a Project

You can copy an entire dashboard – settings, widgets, and all. This can be useful if you want to test edits without changing a live dashboard, if you need to troubleshoot with support, or if you want to use an older dashboard as a template for a new one you are building.

Note that this duplicate dashboard you create will be located in the same project as the one you copied, unless you move it afterwards.

  1. Click the dropdown arrow to the right of the dashboard you want to copy.
    Copy option in dropdown next to dashboard
  2. Select Copy Dashboard.
  3. Name your duplicate dashboard.

Dataset Utilization Limits

Our data platform imposes a limit on the number of times a single data source can be used in active datasets.  Currently, a single data source can only be in 50 active datasets to guarantee timely data processing. For external data, the limit is 5 active datasets. These limits are subject to change over time as our platform and features grow.  If your datasource reaches this utilization limit, an error dialog is displayed while adding the source in the data mapper or copying the dashboard.

Qtip: For example, a survey used in two dashboards creates three active datasets (1 for data & analysis in CoreXM, 2 for dashboards CX). An active dataset is a dataset that has been accessed within 30 days.

Deleting Dashboards from a Project

Warning: You cannot retrieve deleted dashboards! Do not delete a dashboard unless you are absolutely sure that is what you want to do!
