A dashboard is a combined display of multiple worksheets and related information in a single place. The dashboards are used to monitor and compare a variety of data simultaneously. The different data views are displayed all at once.
Dashboards are shown as tabs at the bottom of the workbook and they usually get updated with the most recent data from the data source.
To create a dashboard, you can add views from any worksheet in the workbook along with many supporting objects such as text areas, web pages, and images.
Each view you add to the dashboard is connected to its corresponding worksheet. So when you modify the worksheet, the dashboard is updated and when you modify the view in the dashboard, the worksheet is updated.
