Share Dashboards

Permissions needed: Owner, Dashboard Admin/Editor

There are a couple ways to share dashboards with other members of your organization if they’re an existing Chartio user:

Do you need to share a dashboard with a new user? You’ll need to add them to the organization first.

Click the arrow in the dashboard sidebar to open sharing options

Existing users

Add to dashboard

Easily grant access for one or more users or Teams to a dashboard via the Share Dashboard button in the sidebar menu or by opening the Access tab in the dashboard Settings. You can choose to send an email notification and add a personalized message, to provide some context for the dashboard.

By default, the added user or team will be added as a Viewer. To grant them a different level of access, select either Editor or Admin from the dropdown before clicking Share to grant dashboard access.

Dashboard Access Permissions

You can also quickly share dashboards with existing Chartio teammates using a special URL that grants Editor or Viewer access automatically.

Note: To share a link with a user who is not yet in your Chartio organization, you must first add them to a team.

From a dashboard, click Settings then switch to the Access tab. In the Dashboard Link section, select the Link Sharing dropdown and choose either View or Edit access. Click Copy Url to copy the sharing URL, and then share the URL with your Chartio teammates.

Enable link sharing to share URLs with your teammates

  • If a Chartio user has existing access, that access will override the link sharing access level.
  • When the link sharing setting is updated, a new link is generated and the old link will no longer work. Similarly, when link sharing is turned off the old link will no longer be valid.
  • Link sharing URLs contain a random, non-guessable string to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Dashboard Editors and Admins can enable link sharing.

New users

You may grant access to users who do not yet exist in the organization. If you’re an Owner, a Chartio invitation email will be sent to the new user. If you are a dashboard Admin or Editor, a request for approval will be sent to the organization Owners. Once the Owner approves the access, a Chartio invitation email will be sent to the new user.

The new user will receive an email with an activation link. Once they click the link in the email and set their password, they will be able to access the dashboard. Additionally, the new user will be added to a placeholder team called Added from Dashboard.

Approving access for a new user will result in the addition of 1 new seat to your organization plan.

Note: Dashboard Editors can only grant View or Edit access.
