The dashboard feature/functionality is a great feature in Odoo, specifically it serves as a Reporting Tool. You can see all your detailed reports once you chose the DashBoard Feature.

For E.g.:- If you want to view Sales reports as per months( i.e how much sales were done, how many quotations made and all details relating to Sales in graphical manner with all data )

The way to configure is as below.

Let us consider we want to have Dash Board feature the Sales Module.

  1. Go to Sales Menu, then go to “Sales Order”.

  2. Then go to ADD TO DASHBOARD

  3. As soon as you click on ADD TO DASHBOARD, you will find a button “ADD” just below. Click on it.

  4. After adding it, you will see a pop up as “FILTER ADDED”

  5. Now go to menu REPORTING, there you will the SALES ORDER details based on moths or as you prefer.

  6. This Reporting feature is available various modules, you just have to explore it.

Hope this helps
