Dashboards in Configuration Manager 2007 display multiple reports on a single page. Use the following procedure to add reports to a dashboard.


To add reports to a dashboard

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Reporting / Dashboards.

  2. Right-click the name of the dashboard that you want to modify, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Reports tab. All reports that are used in the dashboard are listed in the Dashboard reports area, along with the position (row and column) for each report.

  4. To add or remove columns or rows from the dashboard, specify the dimensions and then click Set.

    When the dimensions for a dashboard are reduced, the reports assigned to the rows or columns are removed from the dashboard temporarily, but they can be restored by increasing the dimensions to the original size. The reports are permanently removed when clicking OK or Apply.
  5. Double-click a dashboard position, select a report from the Select Report list, and then click OK to insert the selected report into the position.

    The dialog box will display only the reports that do not contain a report prompt and for which the user has Read access.
  6. Use the Move Up and Move Down icons to change the dashboard position for a report.

  7. Click OK to save the dashboard and exit the dialog box.
