How to create a dashboard template

TeamGuru allows you to set up standardized KPI dashboards that can be used to track performance at different locations of your business. Today we will show you how you can utilize the templates to easily manage your standardized dashboards.

Dashboard templates help you to effortlessly maintain dashboards with the same metric settings from one location only. You are now able to modify your list of metrics and dashboard settings in your template, instead of making these changes at individual dashboards level.
