Dashboards

Dashboards provide a single pane of glass view into your data.

Axiom provides a mature dashboards experience that allows collections of queries across multiple datasets to be visualized in one place.

Dashboards are easy to share, benefit from collaboration, and bring separate datasets together in a single view.

This guide will introduce the Dashboards page and help you to create your first Dashboard and add queries to it.

Dashboards Page

Select a private or shared dashboard from this page. A private dashboard is one that only you can see and edit, and a shared dashboard can be viewed or edited by anyone on your team.

Click the New Dashboard button to get started, you'll see a dialog that asks you for the name and a description of your new dashboard:

Your First Query

Once a dashboard is selected, you'll be shown an empty dashboard page, with a call to action button that asks you to create a new query:

new chart button

Clicking that button displays the edit query slide-out, where you can name your new query, select the dataset, and use the Query Builder to build a query that uses one or more visualizations:

Click the Done button when you are finished, and you will now see your query in your dashboard. You can adjust the dimensions of the query from the bottom-right corner.

When you are happy with the dashboard, press the "Save Dashboard" button in the toolbar to save your changes.

Dashboard Settings

From the toolbar, you can:

  • Add more queries
  • Change ownership of the dashboard between yourself and a team
  • Change the time range that all the queries in a dashboard display
  • Full screen the dashboard, which is perfect for displaying it on a tv or shared monitor
