Dashboards are the best way to build high-level views of everything going on in your Workspace.
Create a visual representation of work and share it with your team. You can track sprints, epics, high-level initiatives, projects, portfolio management, and more!
Customizable cards are the building blocks of Dashboards. Use common charts, specialized cards for time tracking and sprints, add rich text blocks, conversations, and embed anything.
Widgets were renamed to cards on March 9th, 2023.

Users cannot delete Dashboards created by someone else unless the Dashboard is public or being shared with them. If a Dashboard is public, users are able to delete it after they make it private. If a Dashboard is shared, users with full permissions can delete it.
Items in the Trash are kept for 30 days before being permanently deleted.
