Dashboard Permissions (Older Version)


This article explains how admins can assign permissions to dashboards. All the Gainsight users can view all of the dashboards on Gainsight Home by default. However, Admins can enable/disable user’s access to individual dashboards using the Dashboard Permissions. 


If your org is > v 5.15, and is upgraded with New Dashboard Permissions, click Dashboard Permissions.

This section explains about how Admins can configure individual dashboard permissions for users with the Older Dashboard Permissions UI.

To enable Dashboard Permissions,

  1. Navigate to Administration > UI Views > Dashboard Permissions > ON/OFF.
  2. Select ON to enable check box.

Dashboard Permissions by User

Note: If you are unable to change the selection under View, it’s probably because dashboard permissions are not enabled for that particular dashboard.
