Adding Other Dashboards to Business in a Box

Version 6

 

In addition to allowing you to power up pre-installed best practice dashboards as described in Powering Up Business in a Box Dashboards, Business in a Box also lets you do the following:

  • Link card pages from your Domo instance to a given department tab. 

  • Add apps from the Appstore.

When you add card pages or Appstore dashboards to a department tab, they appear in the list of dashboards for that tab, providing quick and easy navigation for users with a given role. For example, Domo user Judy is over YouTube marketing campaigns for her company. In addition to the pre-installed Business in a Box dashboards available in the Business in a Box "Marketing" tab, she also regularly refers to another card page in Domo called "YouTube Marketing." Instead of having to constantly switch between Business in a Box and the "YouTube Marketing" page, Judy can simplify her navigation by linking "YouTube Marketing" to the "Marketing" tab in Business in a Box. She can then access all her marketing dashboards from one place. 

You can only add card pages or Appstore dashboards to Business in a Box if you have an "Admin" security role or a custom role with "Manage All Cards and Pages" enabled.

To link to one or more card pages from Business in a Box,

  1. Select Dashboards in the toolbar at the top of the screen.

  2. Select Business in a Box in your left-hand navigation pane.
