Copy a report or dashboard

Unless a report or dashboard is shared with you and the owner gives you permission to make changes to it, the best way to take an existing report or dashboard and make it your own is to copy it. You are then the owner of the copy.

Once you are the owner, you can customize it and share it as you please.
