my company has been using Looker extensively across teams for monitoring, analysis, reporting purposes for a decade. One problem we face is people may build looks or dashboards without being aware that something similar already exists. So it ends up we have thousands of looks/dashboards in the infrastructure which is very unnecessary.

We want to come up with a solution to organize the Looker structure better and clean up duplicated visualizations. But we are also aware that it is very hard to depend on the users for this…

Is it possible to use the Looker API to check the content of looks/dashboards and delete duplications? Or are there other solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Dashboards allow you to place multiple tables or graphs or looks on one page, so that you can get a quick view of the related content. If you like, you can also make dashboards interactive, so that users can filter them down to the specific data they are interested in.

Now that we have understood the basic layout of Looks and Dashboards in the Looker Analytics Software, let us delve into understanding some new and unique features that we can implement in our dashboards to make them more interactive and aesthetically pleasing.
