Edit a dashboard widget to change the name, description, security group setting, or content. You can also delete widgets if they are no longer used. Changes are applied to all dashboards that include the widgets.
Tip: If you no longer want to show a widget on a dashboard, you can remove it from the dashboard instead of deleting it. This keeps the widget available if you decide to use it later. See Editing and deleting dashboards.
1. Choose Tools > Administration > Dashboards or Dashboard Widgets. The available option depends on your security permissions.
If you can configure dashboards and widgets, the Configure Dashboards dialog box opens. Click Configure Widgets.
If you can only configure widgets, the Configure Widgets dialog box opens.
2. Edit or delete the widget.
