View options for dashboards and visualizations

You can change view options for dashboards in the View Options section of the Configuration panel. You can also use the visualization menu in view mode to choose different view options for visualizations.

Apply view-only settings for dashboards

Users can share dashboards with view-only settings to reduce editing access and maximize screen space. The following View Options are available in the Configuration panel:

Setting Default Description
Show Edit Button Enabled (Edit button is visible) Disable to hide the Edit button in view mode. If disabled, use Settings > User interface > Views or the Dashboards page to edit the dashboard.
Show Open In Search Button Enabled (Open In Search button is visible) Disable to hide the Open In Search button

(Open In Search icon) in the visualization menu of selected visualizations. If disabled, users can't click to open the search driving a visualization.

Although it is possible to hide various components of a dashboard to have a view-only experience, users with the proper permissions can still enter the editing experience from the Dashboards list page.
