I want to give specific profiles in my organization the ability to modify and use Dynamic Dashboards.

According to this Salesforce Help Page, I need to give the following permissions to the profiles.

  • Create and Customize Dashboards
  • Create Dashboard Folders
  • Edit My Dashboards
  • Manage Dashboards in Public Folders
  • View Dashboards in Public Folders

However, I do not see any of these options on profile permissions. What I see that seems relevant:

  • Manage Dashboards
  • Manage Dynamic Dashboards
  • Run Reports

How do I enable the 5 permissions I listed above for profiles?

here are some screenshots of what I see. enter image description here enter image description here

  • Questions: 1) What edition are you using? 2) Are these custom profiles? 3) Are you using enhanced setup?

  • @HomerJ Developer Edition, yes they are custom profiles, and I'm not entirely sure if I am, but I'm leaning towards yes haha Commented Jan 28, 2016 at 14:05
  • The way you'd tell, is if you open a profile, do you have an "EDIT" button at the top of the screen, or is there an APPS and SYSTEM section, with additional menus?

  • @HomerJ there is an edit button :) Commented Jan 28, 2016 at 16:37
  • Strange. When you edit the profile, in the Administrative section, you should be seeing all of the options if the profile is a "salesforce" User License profile. Another question, is the dev org recently created?
