Sharing and importing dashboards

As a tenant administrator, an editor, or a viewer, you can share a dashboard or a panel as a link or a snapshot with other users. You can also export or download dashboards or panels and import community or custom dashboards in the system.

Community dashboards are open-source dashboards that you can import for your use. You can import them from  here . For more information, click  here .

Custom dashboards are the dashboards that you create or edit.
