The Dashboards sidebar is where you can quickly access your custom reports. You can save multiple reports into a single page view rather than individually generating each report. It is even possible to save cross-project charts into the same dashboard for side-by-side comparisons.

Manually Refreshing a Dashboard
To manually refresh all charts on a dashboard, click the refresh icon on the top of the dashboard.
To create a dashboard, click the "+" button in the left sidebar or click on the "Add" button in the top right corner of a chart.
Note: You must save the chart before you are able to save it to a dashboard. Read more about creating and saving charts here.
Dashboards are undiscoverable or private by default and can be made visible using the "Discoverable" earth toggle.
You and other Amplitude users in your organization can search for discoverable dashboards and charts in the Browse Charts tab in the header.
Note: Undiscoverable or private dashboards and charts are still visible to Managers and the Organization Admins in Browse Charts page. Read more about user permissions here.
Add to Dashboard Sidebar
Dashboards that you create are automatically added to your left sidebar. You have the ability to unpin and reorder them. You can also browse for other discoverable dashboards and add them to your personal sidebar.
If you are already in a chart, click "Add" in the top right corner.
Chart + KPI
You can toggle headline numbers on for single series Event Segmentation charts that are on dashboards. To turn this on, hover over the bottom of the chart pinned on your dashboard and click the "Chart + KPI" option. From left to right, it will display the following information given the example below where the current day is May 24 and the chart shows unique new users in the last 30 days:
- 316k: Total for the entire date range. In this case, there were about 316k unique new users from April 24 to May 24.
- 13.3k: The metric in the most complete interval. In the example, there were about 13.3k new users on May 23rd.
- 40.4%: The difference since the previous interval. In the example below, there was a 40.4% increase in new users since May 22nd.
- 40.2%: The difference compared to the beginning of the date range set. In the example below, there was a 40.2% overall increase in new users since April 24.
Note: You will have to be the owner of the chart and the dashboard to toggle on this option.
Hover over a specific chart and click the expand icon in the bottom right corner to make the chart full-width. This is useful for viewing detailed charts in a larger view or highlighting key reports.
Copy Dashboards and Charts
To duplicate a dashboard, click "Save As" in the top right corner.
You can also duplicate a dashboard from the Browse Charts page.
Edits can only be made by the current owner. Admins and Managers can transfer ownership of charts that do not belong to them. Change the owner of a dashboard, chart, or cohort by clicking the "More" icon followed by "Transfer Ownership." Once you transfer your ownership, you will no longer be able to make edits to the dashboard.
Dashboard Date Range (Enterprise)
You can apply a date range on a dashboard and all charts will be updated to reflect that date range. You have the ability to query on daily, weekly, or monthly intervals on our datepicker. This date range cannot be saved on the dashboard and the individual charts themselves will not update to save the new date range.
Dashboards can be archived. You should archive a dashboard when it is no longer supported or used. Users can still search for archived charts in the Browse Charts page. Archiving a dashboard will not archive the charts within the dashboard.
To archive a dashboard, click the "More" button in top right corner, and then select "Archive".
Sending Email Reports (Enterprise)
Note: Email Reports are only available on the Enterprise plan.
Schedule daily or weekly email reports of your dashboard by clicking the “Subscribe” button. An HTML formatted email report with optional CSV files can be sent to anyone regardless of whether or not they have an Amplitude account. You are able to customize the frequency of email reports person by person as long as you are the owner of that dashboard. In addition, you are able to subscribe yourself to someone else’s dashboard.
Unsubscribe from a dashboard by clicking "Subscribe" followed by the "x" next to the email address or by selecting "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of the email report itself.
