Dashboards in Microsoft Dynamics 365 provide an overview of business data ‒ actionable information that’s viewable across the organization. Use a dashboard to see performance at a glance.
You can create two types of dashboards:
User dashboards. A user dashboard can be created by any user in the user’s work area: Sales, Service, or Marketing. A user dashboard doesn’t have to be published to be visible, but it’s only visible to the person who created it, unless shared with others. A user dashboard can be set as the default dashboard, in which case it overrides the system dashboard for that user.
System dashboards. A system dashboard is created by a system administrator or customizer in the Settings area. A system dashboard must be published to be visible. After it’s published, it’s visible to everyone in the organization, unless hidden by the admin or customizer. The admin or customizer can set a particular dashboard as the default dashboard for the whole organization.
