Dashboard Management - Better Scheduling and administration

Problem:

Once you start administering a large number of dashboards, it becomes difficult to use the web interface as an admin tool.

Say you need to select 20 dashboards and then edit the delivery schedule and change some names for distribution - there appears to be no simple way to manage this. Each one has to be changed individually.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Adobe Clientcare. You need to go to each dashboard and schedule it one by one. There is no short cut to do this . Sorry about that. If you have any other questions, let me know.

There is a real need to create a stateful dashboard manager, allowing users to sort, nest and organize to provide clarity to users.

Surely there must be a way to do this by selecting a number of dashboards and amending, editing and updating en-masse.

 

For example, moving a newly created dashboard (from the bottom of the list) to group with like dashboards in a different position is an exercise in patience that neither me or my colleages are keen to take part in.

To be honest, this already had to be a feature for a long time!

Completely agree with lexham, we run into this issue when scheduling dashboards & reports on a daily basis. The current interface makes it extremely difficult to sort, filter, group, or remove any number of dashboards. Not to mention when you are trying to schedule the same report for multiple sites or time frames, scheduling one-by-one just doesn't make sense. A more useful dashboard manager and scheduling tool would make a world of difference.
