Typically, a web map is used as part of a Dashboard, so an existing web map is required or one will need to be created and the layers configured before starting the creation and modification of a Dashboard.
The process to work with Dashboards is:
- Configure a web map. NOTE: Sharing will have to be set for the map layers and the web map, itself, (and the Dashboard) if the Dashboard is to be used by others than the author/developer/curator of the Dashboard/web map/layers.
- Create a Dashboard – can use the “grid” button (upper right) on the organizational ArcGIS Online site (then choose Dashboards) or click the Create App Button in the My Content area (then choose Dashboard)
- Configure the Dashboard
Create app – allows the creation of a “new” dashboard. Add a new title and at least one tag, then click Create Dashboard.
“The Grid” tool – allows to continue working on an existing dashboard or create a new dashboard (upper right).
The new Dashboard looks like this (if one of the two methods above is used).
