Step 3 allows you to control the layout of the reports in the dashboard and how often they refresh.

By default, Stonefield Query lays out reports horizontally, from left to right, in the order they appear in the Selected reports list in step 2. You can rearrange the order by dragging a report to the desired position, either beside or below another report.

To change the properties of a report in the dashboard, click the report. The properties available are:

  • Width: the width of the report in the dashboard. This is a relative value; if one report has a width of 1 and another has a width of 2, the second one is twice as wide as the first.

  • Height: the height of the report in the dashboard. This is a relative value; if one report has a height of 1 and another has a height of 2, the second one is twice as tall as the first.

  • Refresh interval: a dashboard automatically refreshes the data in each of its reports at an interval you determine. The default is every 30 seconds but you can set it to a different value if you wish.
