Widgets are charts with defined data sources, monitoring metrics, widget properties, filters, and chart properties. Dashboard Designer displays different types of widgets, such as default widget templates, custom widget templates, and custom widgets. You can use the Widgets option in Dashboard Designer to create custom widgets or custom widget templates. To create a custom widget or custom widget template, you select a chart type, set data definitions, set filters, set a background image, and set toolbar and chart properties. You can create multiple custom widgets and custom templates, and save them into various categories for later use. You can publish custom widgets individually or in bulk.
