When you modify a dashboard (e.g. adding a new widget) this change is only active for your current session and is not automatically propagated to the users it is shared with. To save these changes and make them viewable by the shared viewers you must republish the dashboard.
The default dashboards provided with Insights are shared dashboards, with the admin user created at installation as the owner.
To do so, select Republish from the dashboard heading or from the More Options menu in the dashboards pane.
As the recipient of a shared dashboard, any changes you make are only visible to you and do not persist between sessions. To save any such changes you must first duplicate the shared dashboard. You are then the owner of this new dashboard and may edit and share it as such.
To do so, select Duplicate from the dashboard heading or from the More Options menu in the dashboards pane.
