Use the Status > Dashboard > Add Chart page to add elements to the Risk, Usage, or System dashboard.
Note that you can neither add elements to nor remove elements from the Threats dashboard.
To start, use the Add elements to tab drop-down list to select a tab, then select the element that you want to add from the Dashboard Elements list.

When you select an element in the list, a sample is displayed in the Preview pane. You can use the preview pane to make changes to the chart Name and, if applicable, Chart type, Time period, and Top value (for example, top 1-5 categories, or top 16-20 users).
*
Chart type: Many charts can be displayed as a multi-series bar, column, or line chart, or as a stacked area or column chart. Some can be displayed as bar, line, or pie charts. Which types are available depends on the data being displayed.
*
Time period: Most charts can display a variable time period: Today (the period since midnight of the current day), the last 7 days, or last 30 days. If the maximum time period for dashboard charts is extended, charts may also be able to show the last 180 or 365 days.

*
See Configuring Dashboard reporting data for information about extending the time period for dashboard charts.
*
Top: Charts displaying information about the top users, categories, URLs, and so on can display up to 5 values. Select whether to show the top 5 values, 6-10 values, 11-15 values, or 16-20 values.
When you are finished making changes, click Add. The dashboard tab is updated immediately.
If you have been editing a chart and would like to start over, click Restore Defaults to reset the chart to is default time period, type, and top value (if any).
Two dashboard elements do not appear on any tab by default, but are available to be added:
*
Activity Today provides examples of how your software has protected your network today. The information varies based on your subscription. With Forcepoint Web Security, it includes information about sites analyzed by Content Gateway.
This element also shows the total number of Internet requests handled so far today, the total number of requests blocked, and the number of real-time database updates processed.
*
30-Day Value Estimates provide a way to estimate time and bandwidth savings afforded by your software over a 30-day period that includes today.
Mouse over the Time or Bandwidth item (under Saved) for an explanation of how the estimate was calculated. The calculation can be customized on the Add Charts page.
