Adding Widgets To Your Dashboard
The next part of how to build a custom dashboard is adding widgets. To add a widget, navigate to the dashboard and press on the blue ‘+ Add Widget’ button at the top of the screen.
Renaming & Applying Filters To Widgets
Each widget on your custom dashboard can be renamed and filtered to only show data for a particular country, app version or star rating.
To edit a widget, press on the filter icon at the top right of it.
You will then see a few different options for the selected widget. At the top, you’ll be able to change the name by typing a new one in the box.
Filter By App:
Below the name, you can click the source dropdown to update the source of the widget. This will allow you to show different sources alongside each
other in the same dashboard.
Once a new source is selected, the widget will show the app and store icon in the top left:
Then further down you can adjust the filtering for that particular widget to only show data for a particular country, source version, topics or star rating.
Once you’ve made the necessary changes, press the green ‘Done’ button at the bottom of the window.

Sharing Dashboards with your team
You will see all Dashboards that you have created at the top of the Dashboards page under “My Dashboards”.
Your team members will see the Dashboards you created under the “Team Dashboards” section, further down the page.
Only the creator of each Dashboards can edit it. If one of your team members wants to edit a Dashboard you created the only way to do this is to create a copy, and then edit the copy. They will then see both versions of that Dashboard – one in the “My” section and one in the “Team” section. This feature prevents other people altering your Dashboards without your knowledge.
If you want to collaborate on editing Dashboards with your team we suggest using a versioned naming convention, following this template: “Dashboard name v0.1” etc. If a team member updates the Dashboard they increase the version number on the copy they create. This way the whole team can see which version is most current.
