In a Dashboard View multiple views can be visualized and arranged in one window. Thereby all relevant results of your data analysis can be displayed in one place in a clear and structured way.

In order to customize a Dashboard View follow these steps:

  1. To create a Dashboard view, open your graph file (.slg) and the Open View Dialog will pop up. Select Dashboard as view type on the left-hand side of the Open View Dialog and Dashboard as default view template. Afterwards select the View you want to visualize in the Dashboard by editing the tick boxes, which will appear under, in the settings pad.

  2. Your saved View Templates, which you have previously extracted from other visualizations can now be added to the dashboard. This is done by clicking on the + button at the top of Dashboard window.

  3. Arrange the views by drag’n’drop from the tab bar in the bottom of the window. Use the icons appearing on top of the canvas to position the individual view tiles. You can then drag the borders to resize each tile in the dashboard.

  4. As soon as you are happy with your customized view, you can save the settings by extracting a view template (see figure below). You can then reuse this template for any graph file built with the same metamodel. You find your saved view templates under “My View Templates” in the Open View Dialog.
