Overview

Create a dashboard, and then add widgets to it, to help you manage and monitor your tasks. Each widget shows tasks which meet specified criteria, you can use Wrike’s pre-built widgets or build Custom Widgets to see tasks which match the filters you apply.

Important Information

  • Users on Professional accounts can have up to 10 dashboards, users on Business accounts can have up to 50, and users on Enterprise accounts can have up to 200 dashboards.
  • If you share a dashboard with someone, they must have access to the folder the widgets are based on. If they don't have access to those folders, then they won't see the tasks in the widget.

Navigate the Dashboard View

Click the Dashboard tab at the top of the Workspace to view, create, and share your dashboards. On the Dashboard tab:

  • Dashboard names appear in the upper left-hand corner. Click the current dashboard’s name and select a different dashboard from the list to view that dashboard’s widgets.
  • Each widget appears as an individual panel; the widget’s name is listed at the top of its panel.
  • To open a widget in the List view: hover over its name, click the menu button in the upper right-hand corner and select "Open in List View".

Share a Dashboard

Regular users can share dashboards with regular and external users, collaborators*, and user groups. 

Share dashboards with your teammates so that you can all keep track of and monitor important information. When you share a dashboard:

  • The person you shared the dashboard with receives an Inbox notification telling them that a dashboard has been shared with them.
  • The folder/project on which the widgets are based must be shared with the people who you're sharing the dashboard with.

*Collaborators cannot get access to dashboards due to limited license type rights. So if you want a collaborator to see the shared dashboard, you need to change their license type to any other type.
