Use the Reports tab of the Configuration Manager 2007 Dashboard Properties dialog box to specify the dimensions for the dashboard and the reports that will display in each position. The Reports tab contains the following elements:

Dashboard dimensions

Specifies the dimensions for the dashboard in rows and columns. By default, the dashboard is made of two rows and two columns. When the dimensions are modified, click Set to change the number of positions listed in the Dashboard reports section.
Dashboard reports

Specifies the reports that will be displayed at the given position in the dashboard. The positions are identified by the row and column combination, as detailed here:
  • To add a report to a position, double-click anywhere on the row for the position or select a position, and then click the Select Report icon. Select a report from the Select Report dialog box, and then click OK. When there are no reports defined for a position, the Report column displays -Blank-. For more information, see How to Add Reports to a Dashboard.

  • To remove a report from a position, add the -Blank- report to the position. To remove groups of reports from a dashboard, the dimensions can be modified. For more information, see How to Remove Reports from a Dashboard.

  • Use the Move Up and Move Down icons to change the dashboard position for a highlighted report.
