Creating the Dashboard

The following steps use a calendar heat map visual, such as the one described in Calendar heat maps, which is built on the dataset SFPD Incidents.
  1. Start a new dashboard by clicking New Dashboard.
  2. In the Dashboard Designer for dashboards, open SFPD Incidents - Calendar Heat Map, built according to the instructions in Calendar heat maps. Ensure that you are using the SFPD Incidents dataset.
  3. Note that the visual appears in the dashboard.
  4. To edit the visual, click the Pencil icon on the top right corner of the visual.
  5. Under Dimensions, select pddistrict and add it to the Filters shelf. Repeat with category and date.
  6. Name and save the dashboard. We used the name SFPD Incidents Cascading Filters.
