A dashboard can include input controls for choosing the data displayed in one or more frames, and custom frames that point to URLs for other content. By combining different types of related content, you can create appealing, data-rich dashboards that quickly convey LMS trends.

Dashboards are the most presentable and highly functional stage of the Lambda Analytics (Zoola) Information Hierarchy. You can run and export both existing Out-of-the-Box dashboards or create and run custom dashboards.

Each element on your dashboard is called a dashlet, which consists of Ad Hoc views, filter, and reports. Dashlets have unique names and resource IDs, and editable properties that vary depending on the dashlet type.
