Share your dashboard

Important note

Share links are hash URLs which makes them unique and impossible to guess. Additionally, we block search engines from accessing share links on Geckoboard. Please note, if the link is shared on a public-facing site there is a chance it will be indexed. If you have sensitive data, please keep this in mind!

Warning

By default, a share link will display your dashboard to anyone who clicks the link unless you set up IP restrictions, regenerate or delete the share link.

How to generate a share link 

To generate a link, follow these steps:

  1. While logged into Geckoboard, navigate to the dashboard you wish to share.
  2. On the navigation menu, Click Share.share panel
  3. In the Share panel, click Create share link.share panel
  4. With your link generated, click the more options menu, then select Copy
  5. The link is now on your clipboard - simply paste it to share!

Tip

To generate a link to multiple dashboards, check out the create a dashboard loop guide.

Important note

Due to security limitations in browsers, it isn't possible to generate a share link that automatically activates full-screen mode. For this, we recommend using our Chrome app with a Chromebit in Kiosk mode.

How to revoke access

There are two methods to revoke access, regenerating or deleting a link.

Regenerating will create a new link to the dashboard that can be shared while revoking access from the old link. Deleting a link will make the dashboard inaccessible from the share link altogether. 

To revoke access, follow these steps:

  1. While logged into Geckoboard, navigate to the dashboard you wish to revoke access for.
  2. On the navigation menu, click Share.share panel
  3. In the Share panel, Click the more options menu, then select Regenerate or Delete.share panel
