Creating a New Dashboard Data Set

Information Alert:

Our new Dashboard feature is available upon request for the initial launch phase. Please contact your Customer Success Manager if you'd like to schedule implementation with our Services team.


Resolver's Dashboard Data Set feature allows users to build a Dashboard Data Path using the Object Types they would like to include on their Dashboards.

The Dashboard Data Set feature also allows users to select which Fields, Formulas and Properties to use on their Dashboard, perform Data Transformations and set formatting for the selected Fields, Formulas and Properties.

Before using the Dashboards feature, at least one Dashboard Data Set needs to be created and published.

User Account Requirements
