Reports can be added either by dragging them from the Insights section or by opening a report and selecting "Add to dashboard." Customize the layout by resizing, moving, or deleting reports. Use filters like "Period" or "User" to display specific data. Dashboards can be shared internally with team members or externally via a public link.
