Dashboards and Reports

The Dashboards and Reports section displays data from every report and dashboard in your org. This data includes the report or dashboard’s name, type, source, number of reports, the timestamp when it was created, the timestamp when it was last modified, who created it, and who last modified it. The scan icon is displayed at the end of each entry.

If the Dashboard’s performance can be optimized further a Warning is displayed which describes the improvement area. You can click on the expand icon beside each warning message. This provides a deep dive on the cause and how it can be corrected.
