Note: In order to share dashboards across organizations, a user must have a custom role with the “Share Templates” permission enabled. Reach out to your Samsara representative to have this enabled if it is not already.
Rather than spend hours recreating dashboards for every one of your assets, Dashboard Templates allow you to clone a single dashboard layout across multiple assets in just a few clicks. Now, you can save even more time by sharing those Dashboard Templates between different organizations.
On the Industrial Configuration Page, select “Dashboard” from the left hand side and select the “Templates” tab. By clicking on the action “…” button for a template, you can select “Copy template to another org”.
Select a destination organization for the dashboard template and then select the “Copy to…” button. If you’d like to add the dashboard to more than one organization, you can select another destination and then select “Copy to…” again.
After copying the dashboard template, click the hyperlink ‘Find the shared copy of the template.” This will open a new tab to the dashboard template in the destination organization.
From here, select asset labels from the drop down list to apply the template to specific assets.
Note: Dashboard Templates rely on Data Groups. When the Dashboard Template is copied to the destination organization, all new Data Groups will be auto-created in the destination organization. If the Data Group already exists, it will not be created again.
