You can send a copy of your dashboards and data sources to other users. Unlike Dashboard Sharing, the copy physically creates these dashboards and data sources in the target user (s). After receiving dashboards copy, target users will import their own data into the copied data sources, as well as edit, delete, or create new dashboards. Important: There will be no further relation to the copied data sources and dashboards after copying. New copies may be made at any time but will not replace previous copies. There will always be new dashboards and data sources on the target.


  • The copied dashboards do not display the settings defined on the Master Dashboard of the source user.
  • The Data Source information will not be copied. The destination user must import their own data.

Sending a copy to another user (s)

  • First, you must have the Send Copies feature enabled on your subscription. To learn more about TaticView features, visit Subscription Features;
  • If your subscription already has the Send Copies feature enabled, the Send copy option is available in the context menu of the datasources cards:

  • In the next screen (below), enter a description for this copy process (optional) and add the users email address who will receive the copy (copies can only be sent to emails that are already registered on TaticView. An alert message will be displayed if the email is not registered on TaticView. If you want to add a new user, you must enter the email address and click the Add Guest option.
