Dashboard maps can include dynamic information about their creation process that helps to understand them better, and optimise your dashboards and working maps. When larger numbers of maps are being swept for complex dashboards, it is important to only collect relevant and useful data, and not to sweep maps unnecessarily, for best performance.
Reports can be used to show things like the number of maps scanned, which maps, or the date that the dashboard was created. Refer to Appendix F for a complete list of report keywords that can be used.
- If Dashboards are taking a while to scan, check how many maps and which ones are being scanned by including a report in the Central Topic Notes in the dashboard template map. Block scanning of unnecessary maps by applying the "Exclude from Dashboard" Icon on the Topic containing the Multimap Hyperlink. Linking to folders can easily cause unnecessary scanning of maps.
- There is limited space in the Comments box on the Dashboard Selection dialogue. Some of the information (e.g. map count) is not available until after the dashboard has been completed, so is not relevant in the Comments box when choosing Dashboards.
