Retiring Old Dashboards

We came up with an interesting trick that I thought I would share with the community.

We recently updated some of our underlying model and rebuilt a dashboard based on the newer model, in order to allow for people who may have bookmarked the old version of the dashboard, we created a new field in the underlying Look.

  - dimension: dashboard_redirect
sql: getDate()
html: <a href="/dashboards/26">Go Here Instead</a>

(Note: We used getDate() because true didn’t work)

Then we created a Look that had that one field displayed, set it as “Single Value” visualization, and replaced the content of old dashboard with this Look.

The new dashboard is pretty simple, but informative 😄
