    Hi,

    Dashboards:The Web report in BW each have specific URL. But for the users it is difficult to remember the URL.

    So they create a Dashbord which essentially displays the main page from where you can navigate to the report that you want. The dashboard typically may contain chart also. The dashboards are now designed in Enterprise Portal. The dashboard main page would be different for different users based on their role.
