Component templates are pre-designed dashboard components that offer a convenient way to incorporate them into your dashboard designs. These templates serve as a starting point, enabling you to create new dashboards and leverage the pre-configured settings of the dashboard components. For example, you can customize a built-in component like a pie chart to suit your specific requirements and save it as a component template in the reuse library.
Note: Component Templates replace the Visual Gallery in the Dashboard Toolbox.
Component Templates help you to create new dashboards using the pre-defined templates of the dashboard components. However, with the Visual Gallery, you could use an existing dashboard scenario in another dashboard that is not available in the Component Templates.
The customization options for these templates primarily revolve around UI style, including attributes like inner diameter, data label, color, and more. By utilizing component templates, you can easily re-use these customized variants of dashboard components, eliminating the need to repeatedly add default components and customize their style from scratch each time. Component templates provide pre-designed dashboard components that can be readily used in dashboard designs. They streamline the customization process by allowing you to create and save customized variants of these components, thus enhancing efficiency and consistency in dashboard creation.
