It is very easy to build dashboards on Google Analytics with the publicly shared dashboard templates on Google Analytics Solutions Gallery6

Given below are steps you should follow to import these dashboards to your Google Analytics view:

1. Install Google Analytics app2 in your community.

2. Ensure that the Google Analytics view you are using for the community is properly tracking visits by going to the real time view and performing some activities in the communities (e.g., answering a question).
