This is possible in the latest version. The business case for combining two dashboards into one that I’m aware of is:
DB1 is a dashboard that is company level and common to everyone.
DB2 is specific to the users area of responsibility – Sales, Supply Chain, Fin, Prod, etc. or unique to that user.
So…first you create the base DB’s (DB1 and DB2 for this example). I’d suggest you create them more stacked than across so there is enough real estate when you combine them together (if you are going to combine them side by side – you also can stack the DB’s when you create the combined DB (which will be DB3 for this example).
Once you’ve got the base DB created – get the individual URL’s for each of them. This is done in the admin mode for the DB’s. From the list of DB’s on the left when in admin, right click on DB1 and DB2 and open them in a separate window. The unique URL for each DB will be in the address line in your browser. Keep these handy.
Now create DB3 – which will combine DB1 and DB2. Edit DB3 and scroll to the bottom of the list of views on the right – the last View Group will be “Other Dashboard Widgets”. Open this and drag “Custom URL Widget” (its the only choice). onto your DB3 go to settings in the widget (the gear in the upper right of the widget) and click settings. From there copy the link to DB1 into the URL. You can also fill in the title or leave it blank and let the title from DB1 only display. Click save and you will have DB1 displayed, you can size and position it at this point.
Now repeat the process but use the URL for DB2.
Once complete you will have a Dashboard (DB3) that combines DB1 and 2. You can check out this video to see how to make a dashboard a users home page and/or how to provide a user link to a dashboard. – Right around 13:45 this topic is covered.
Hope that helps!
