Who can see my Dashboard? 

There are two types of Dashboards: Main Dashboards and Private Dashboards. 

  • Main Dashboards

If your Dashboard is a Main Dashboard, everyone in your account will be able to see it. In your Main Dashboard, you can also invite guest users. 

  • Private Dashboards

If you choose the private option, then your Dashboard will be visible to you and the selected team members or guests you invite to it. 

You can share your Private Dashboard with your team members and guests super easily! Click on the person icon located on the upper right of your dashboard. From there, you will be able to add your team members or guests.

  • Which information can my guests and users see? 

Guests will be able to see only Widgets linked to shareable boards they are part of. The same way, team members will only be able to see information from boards they have access to. 

This means that if you invite a guest to a Dashboard and that one of the Widget includes information from a board he hasn't been invited to, he will not be able to see that Widget. 

 

Share my Dashboard

You can share a Private or Main Dashboard with anyone you want! Send them a shareable link or an email straight from monday.com! 

Click the 'Share' button at the top right corner of your Dashboard and select 'Invite to this dashboard':

Dark Mode

You can change your Dashboard into dark mode. Go to your hamburger menu on the top right > Switch to Dark Mode.
