What is a dashboard?

A related group of interactive scorecard and report views that are organized together in a SharePoint or a Web-hosted site. Dashboards tend to be centrally located and managed, easy to use, and up to date.

Any collection of reports that you save to your computer.

A whiteboard in someone’s office that has notes written on it.

What is a scorecard?

A report view that is designed to show whether performance is on or off target at a glance.

A scorecard is the same thing as a dashboard.

What do filters do?

Filters enable you to focus on more specific information in the dashboard.

Filters permanently remove items from the dashboard.

What are some advantages of dashboards that are hosted in SharePoint Server?

You can save a lot of time and effort by using existing reports, rather than having to create new reports every time you need information.

Most reports are highly interactive and offer a variety of right-click menu options, including the ability to open a view in a new browser window without losing connectivity to its data source.

In addition to having easy access to dashboard pages and report views, you also have easy access to a variety of SharePoint lists and document libraries.

All of the above.

How can you save the results of your analysis?

Print a dashboard or a dashboard item, or export some kinds of items to Microsoft Excel or Microsoft PowerPoint.

All analysis done in a dashboard is automatically saved to the server, so there’s no need to do anything.

Ask another user to save or print my changes.
