  1. Choose Dashboards > Create.

    Create button on Dashboards tab

  2. On the New Dashboard tab, give the dashboard a Name and Description.

  3. Choose Included Projects on the left side of the New Dashboard tab, to continue setting up your new dashboard.

    Add Filter button

  5. Choose Sections on the left side of the New Dashboard tab, and then build each section of the dashboard:

    • Use the Dashboard Section list to choose which section you’re customizing. Sections are listed on the left side of the dashboard.
