View Page History
*Shared Dashboards* are comprised of system default and customized views of monitoring data and other content that are visible to all users unless otherwise specified. The *Dashboards* option is used to view shared dashboards. These dashboards are created using *Site Editor* > *Add New Page* and can only be created by the {{{*}root{*}}} user. The example video and how to steps below demonstrate how to create a new shared dashboard page.

# In preparation of our dashboard go ahead and create two host groups one called *San_Francisco* and the other *Oakland* adding a few hosts to each group. Don't forget to commit your configuration change. Also, go to the *Views* application and obtain the URL to one of the available views, (_Views > select a view > right click > This Frame > Open Frame in New Tab_) > copy and save the URL somewhere for later use.
