    Hi all,

    Thank you, Alberto, for this suggestion.

    I am very pleased to announce that starting from version 7.1, administrators can view and manage all dashboards in the system. This includes sharing them with others when needed, changing owner and deleting unused dashboards. See here for more information on this functionality.

    I know this feature is long awaited. In fact, it's the top voted feature in this forum.

    We are working on additional features supporting administrators operational needs, such as advanced dashboard search. Advanced search will allow you to search for dashboard by additional parameters, such as the data source (ElastiCube) used by the dashboard. I look forward to sharing these features with you all, in the future.

    Regards,

    Ahuva

    I agree that Sisense admins should have access to all dashboards that are created with the ability to edit the dashboards and the people they are shared with. Maybe there needs to be a couple of layers of admins.

    My vote for this one.

    I do not quite understand why such a basic feature had not been considered from the beginning.

    I just started working with Sisense, but this has already been a big headache for me as well.

    Our workaround for this is to connect the SiSense underlying mongoDB as a datasource into a new Elasticube. We created a cube that looked at the Users, dashboards, tags (folders) collections. We then created dashboards to give us the appropriate insights.

    Hi Nishad - that sounds like an excellent solution.  Can you share more details?

    Did you "like" this one? It looks like the comments themselves do not increase the likes...in case SiSense team goes by the likes only...we need this please...too many dashboards piled up everywhere already without any possible control or monitoring...Thanks so much

    WE NEED THIS ADMIN FEATURE PLEASE!!!!!

    Today I was asked, defective intermediately, to replace a dashboard email subscription from an employee for a new one? On top of that all Dashboard he created, should be assigned/owned by the new person

    We have many many dashboard already, how do I do that today? Thanks

    Alberto have you thoughts about upgrading versions? Because you will then have the ability to hover over any dashboard and it will show several options such as Owner/CreatedDate/Last Modified etc.

    Not only that but on V6.2 you can have sub folders so people can organize the folder structure much better

    As an OEM that uses Sisense as a data analytics/visualization tool for our Customers, having more administrative control over the dashboards that others have created is becoming ever more a necessity.

    Is there any official word from Sisense on this ? This looks like a highly sought after feature.  This is extremely critical in an enterprise environment.

    Hi all,
     
    Indeed these are highly requested features, as evident by this thread and other similar ones.
     
    Allowing administrators to view and manage all dashboards in the system, whether or not they were shared with them, is in our road map.  We plan to allow administrators to see a full list of all dashboards in the system, and provide the ability to change dashboard owner, delete a dashboard, share it with other people, etc. 
     
    Additionally, we plan to provide visibility into who the dashboard is shared with, when it was last used, and when it was last modified. This will allow administrators the ability to clean up unused dashboards, or promote frequently used dashboards.
     
    These features are currently in planning stages, and we look forward to sharing them with you in the future.
     
    Regards,
    Ahuva

    Hi all,

    We're working on a new feature that will allow administrators to see all dashboards in the system, and perform administrative actions on them: change owner, share, and similar.

    We're currently planning to include it in the next major release.

    Looking forward to sharing this feature with you!
