Edit or remove a dashboard tile

You can change the look and default behavior of a tile in a dashboard.

This article covers the following.

How to begin

  2. Hover over a dashboard tile and select the ellipses to display the options.

Pin the tile to a dashboard

Move the tile

Select and hold the tile to drag it to a new location on the dashboard canvas.


Resize the tile

You can make tiles many different sizes -- from 1x1 tile units up to 5x5. Select and drag the handle (in the bottom right corner) to resize the tile.


By default, selecting a tile takes you to the report where the tile was created or to Q&A (if the tile was created in Q&A). To link to a webpage, another dashboard or report (in the same workspace), an SSRS report, or other online content - add a custom link:

  1. Select the Edit details icon to edit the tile.
  2. Place a checkmark next to Set custom link and select the link type.

    • For an external link, enter the URL.
    • To link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace, select it from the dropdown menu.


Delete the tile

  • Select the Delete tile icon to delete the tile. Deleting a tile does not delete the underlying report or visualization.
