This document shows where in BrightGauge you can access your dashboards, gauges, datasources, account settings, and other BrightGauge resources.
What do you see after you log in?
If you're a BrightGauge Admin user, the Home screen is the first screen you see after you log in to BrightGauge. Viewers cannot see this screen. To access this screen, click the BrightGauge logo on the left of the top menu bar.
The Dashboards, Goal Management, and Reports tiles enable you to create new dashboards, goals, and reports.
The Datasources section lists available datasources and enables you to add new datasources.
The Users section lists the Admin and Analyst users in your account and enables you to add new users.
Analyst and Viewer Users
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:
- With all users from a dashboard
- With Analysts from the Your Account > Users screen
- With Viewers from the Your Account > Viewers screen
