Suppose that the Administrator has created a set of Dashboards. Suppose that Andrea Montanaro is a certain user with the Profile Finland.

Suppose the Admin wants to include in Andrea's Home Page the Dashboards he has created. Is it possible to do that with the point&click approach? If not: is it necessary to create a Visualforce page that substitutes the standard home page?

Note that:

  1. Profile Finland has the View Dashboard in Public Folder checked.
  2. If I try to apply this modification from Andrea's Home Page Layout it tells me that the Admin has to enable at least a Dashboard for being viewed.

    Have you tried sharing the folder with the Finland Profile? Jun 10, 2015 at 13:39

    The dashboard component, by the way, allows the user to view the first row from a dashboard of their choosing that they have access to. If they have multiple dashboards available, they get to choose.
