Pining a link to report page on Dashboard (not live page)

Somehow I managed to set this up on an earlier dashboard but can't remember how. When you click the tile, it jumps to the report page. I don't want a live page, i just want the graph icon and the jump to behaviour.

 

 

How can this be done?

Hi there

if I understand you do not want there to be an actual visual on the graph icon, but rather want it to jump through to the report?

If so you could put in an image URL as a dashboard tile and then link it through to the report page under the "Edit Settings"?

That won't display the last Refreshed date time as I previously had and also last time when I set it up I definitely didn't do it like as am Image URL.

Hi there

I am not sure how else to get it to display as you want?

It might have been a custom visual that was pinned to the dashboard?

Re: Pining a link to report page on Dashboard (not live page)

I am trying to reproduce what I originally had on the Dashboard - look at my screen shot.

 

There's a graph icon which when clicked on goes to a report page. Above the icon there's the refresh date which i enabled from the tile settings. This was all accomplished very easily the first time i built the dashboard but now i am unable to reproduce this tile.

I think I know what happened.

Previously the Dashboard Icon's would not work or scale when made into the smallest size.
When this happened it then created the image above.
Since then it now does scale, and always shows the visual.

And that is why possibly you cannot reproduce that any more?

I thought it might be something like that, which is why i did try scaling the tile but this is the smallest I could get it and the report still appears scaled inside the tile, which is pretty pointless because it's so small you can't read it.

 

Was something changed recently with Live page scalling?

It would be really nice to have an option to show an icon instead of the live page on the tile.

 

ps. this is how it looks now:

Hi there

Not as far as I know

I typically avoid pinning live pages to a dashboard because to me a dashboard should be that, with high level items.

Re: Pining a link to report page on Dashboard (not live page)

I agree, but i was quite happy to have a dashboard tile to jump to the report page and also show the last refresh date to the Dashboard user. I never wanted a live page.
