*Note: The frequency of card information updating is a default configuration and cannot be customized or edited.

Filtering the dashboard

Certain dashboard cards are also affected by using filters and groups. In this document, an indicator at the bottom of the card description will indicate whether that particular card is affected by filters and groups.

At the top right of the page, you'll find the filtering button which will allow you to refine the insights provided on your dashboard. Use filters if you'd like to see statistics only for specific customers, carriers, locations, dates, tags, and more. You can also use the Groups field to narrow results to specific groups.
