  2. Select a dashboard with the region you want to edit.
  3. Click the region header to access the following options:
    Rename a region
    Add a custom name to the region.
    Modify sources
    Quickly replace the data sources for each chart in a region with a different source after copying a chart, region, or dashboards.
    Copy a region
    Hover over Copy to... and make one of the following selections:
    • Select the name of an existing dashboard from the list. The dashboard page opens and displays the location of the copied region.
      Tip:The dashboard list is ordered from the most recently created dashboards (at the bottom) to the oldest dashboards (at the top).
    • Select New Dashboard. In the Dashboard Properties window, type a name for the new dashboard.
    Change the region time interval
    Apply a time interval to the entire region by enabling the Region Time Selector.

      • Select another time interval (such as Last 30 minutes, Last 6 hours, Last day, or Last week).
      • Specify a custom unit of time.
      • Select a custom time range. Click a day to specify the start date for the range. One click will specify a single day. Click another day to specify the end date for the range.
      • Compare metric deltas from two different time intervals.
    • From the History tab, select from up to five recent time intervals selected in a previous login session.
  5. Click Save to close the Region Time Selector.
    The new time interval is applied to all charts and widgets within the region.
