Red Triangle Options in the Dashboard Builder

The Dashboard Builder red triangle menu provides options such as running the dashboard, previewing the dashboard, and saving the dashboard as an add-in.

Run Dashboard

Starts the dashboard.

Preview Mode

Displays a preview of the dashboard. Click Close Preview on the dashboard to return to the dashboard mode.

Start Over

Remove objects from the workspace and select a new template.

Show Grid

Displays dotted grid lines on the workspace. Selected by default.

Show Properties

Shows or hides the Objects and Properties panels for editing display boxes. See Application Builder Window in the Scripting Guide for more information about editing properties.

Auto Scroll

Automatically scrolls horizontally or vertically as you drag an object near the edges of the workspace. Selected by default.

Dashboard Mode

Deselect to display the dashboard in Application Builder, where you can fully customize the application and write scripts. See Creating Applications in the Scripting Guide. Select Dashboard Mode to return to the dashboard.

Source Panel

Shows or hides the Sources panel (the left column in which report components are displayed) and categorizes the icons. Show Sources is selected by default.

Save Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the report to several destinations.

To Data Table

Saves the script to the data table that was used to produce the report. This enables you to run the script again from the data table to recreate the results.

To Journal

Saves a link in a journal window that runs the script for the analysis. If a journal window is already open, the script is added to that journal window. The script contains the path to the data table. Note that if the data table cannot be found, the script does not run.

To Script Window

Opens a script editor window and adds the script to it. If a script window is already open, the script is added to the bottom of that open window.

To Add-In

Lets JMP users install the application and launch it from a JMP menu. See Compile Add-Ins with the JMP Add-In Builder in the Scripting Guide.

To Template

Saves the application as a template from which you can create new dashboards. The templates are saved in the following locations based on your operating system and JMP version:

Windows (JMP): "/C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/SAS/JMP/16/DashboardTemplates"

Windows (JMP Pro): "/C:/Users/<username>/AppData/Roaming/SAS/JMPPro/16/DashboardTemplates"

macOS: "/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/JMP/16/DashboardTemplates"
