Dashboard Actions

The dashboard actions are operations available from an individual dashboard's drop-down menu, available on the dashboards overview page and when viewing a single dashboard. Some actions are only available in one of these two contexts.

General Actions

View Dashboard

The View Dashboard action takes you to the single dashboard view. This action is available when hovering the cursor over the dashboard thumbnail.

The Duplicate action creates a duplicate of a dashboard and all of its reports. Once created, the duplicated dashboard is completely independent of the original dashboard and can be used as a starting point for a new dashboard with a similar subset of reports.


The Refresh action initiates a refresh on each report on the dashboard. Any currently running queries for the same combination of dashboard filter parameters are cancelled before new queries are started. A manual dashboard refresh can thus occasionally help to recover from failed or stuck queries.


Cancellation of running queries is only a "best effort". Cluvio cannot guarantee that running queries stop execution on your database before new queries are started.

Backup Dashboard

The Backup Dashboard action generates a JSON file that can later be used to create a new dashboard from a backup.


If you intend to delete a dashboard, we recommend downloading a backup first.

Show Full-screen

The Show Full-screen action makes a dashboard take up all available screen space, which removes any distractions and is ideally suited for showing a dashboard on a TV or during a presentation.


To configure the dashboard settings, including data refresh rates, the appearance of filters and more, select Settings. See Dashboard Settings for further details.
