Once your reports have been built you will be able to create a new dashboard tab and add them to it. In this example we add reports that have been previously created in previous steps.

A dashboard is a way to present reports to users in a way that lets them quickly scan all their key metrics with out having to open each report individually. As such when designing a dashboard deciding what gets displayed is critical to providing users with dashboards that help them in their jobs.

2. This will open a drop down menu of tab types - from which you should choose a Standard Tab.
