SharePoint Server dashboard: Creating a team dashboard
The easiest way to get started is to use the ‘Copy Dashboard’ functionality and specifying the name of the dashboard:
The dashboard is created with a copy of the charts based on the Bugs dashboard.
Let’s customize each of these charts to be team specific, by filtering on our team specific area path starting with Bug Progress report.
The chart updates to reflect Bug Progress for the Infrastructure Team:
The Excel workbooks for these charts are shared with the Bugs dashboard we copied this from, so let’s save the customized workbook as a copy specific to the Infrastructure team.
We’ll need to update the web part on our team dashboard to point to the new copy of the workbook.
Repeat the above for the other charts on this dashboard:
I can also easily customize my Team Web Access web part to be team specific by customizing the web part:
Now, I have a dashboard for my team!
Next, we’ll look at SharePoint Foundation dashboards. If you have questions or feedback please leave me a comment or send me an email at sunder.raman at microsoft.com
