Grid card

The grid card allows you to show multiple cards in a grid. It will first fill the columns, automatically adding new rows as needed.

To add the grid card to your user interface:

  1. In the top right of the screen, select the pencil icon.
    • If this is your first time editing a dashboard, the Edit dashboard dialog appears.
      • By editing the dashboard, you are taking over control of this dashboard.
      • This means that it is no longer automatically updated when new dashboard elements become available.
      • To continue, in the dialog, select the three dots menu, then select Take control.
  2. Add a card to your dashboard.

All options for this card can be configured via the user interface.
