Sharing dashboard tabs with other users

By default, everyone in your network has access to the Lansweeper web console and can log in with either the Built-in Admin button or a Windows username and password. The Built-in Admin button gives full access to Lansweeper's asset management and other features, whereas logging in with a Windows user by default only gives access to the help desk. You can of course reconfigure access and specify who has rights to what.

Users with asset management rights each have their own dashboard with asset data, whose contents they can configure. Dashboard tabs containing asset data can be shared as global tabs, so all users with asset management rights can see them.

To share a dashboard tab with all users who have asset management rights, do the following:

  1. Make sure your user role includes the Share Dashboard Tabs permission. If it doesn't, you won't be able to share dashboard tabs. More information on configuring website access and specifying who has what permissions can be found in this knowledge base article.
  2. Select the tab you want to share and hit the pencil shaped edit button in the tab header.
