  1. The Dashboards, Goal Management, and Reports tiles enable you to create new dashboards, goals, and reports.

  2. The Latest Updates, Upcoming Events, and Past Events tiles showcase the latest updates in BrightGauge, along with events you may be interested in.

  3. The Datasources section lists available data sources and enables you to add new data sources.

  4. The Users section lists the Admin and Analyst users in your account and enables you to add new users.

  5. The ? button lets you access the Resource Center, including Help Center documentation and Support ticket submission.


Analyst and Viewer Users - Dashboards

After an Analyst or a Viewer logs in to BrightGauge, they are brought to the Dashboards screen. By default, this screen is blank until an Admin shares dashboards with the Analyst or Viewer. Admins may share dashboards in multiple ways:
