Before you begin: An executive summary can be used to summarize a longer report so readers can rapidly become familiar with the dashboard, without having to go through the entire dashboard.
It provides a better user experience for clients by displaying insights and analysis directly on their dashboards. It also allows users to provide an executive summary in the dashboard for specific date ranges.
Super Admins and Business Unit Admins have the ability to create and edit dashboards. That means only Super Admins and Business Unit Admins with edit accessibility can enable the executive summary on a dashboard. Once enabled, Agent users can add unique content for each client they manage within TapClicks.
How to Add an Executive Summary
1] On the left side menu click Reports.
2] On the Reports menu click Dashboards. Your collection of dashboards appears.
