  • Copy tiles on Azure dashboards


  • Updates to Microsoft Intune 

Let’s look at each of these updates in greater detail. 



Copy tiles on Azure dashboards

You can now copy any tile on a dashboard onto the same dashboard, another existing dashboard, or even to a new dashboard.  


Demo Steps:

  1. Navigate to dashboards by opening the menu from the top left of the portal and select "Dashboard". This should bring you to the dashboard experience.


  2. Hover over the tile you want to copy, and you should see an ellipses show up on the top right of the tile. Click into the ellipses to open the tile's context menu.                                                                            Ariya_Khamvongsa_14-1621644448647.png


  3. Select "Copy" from the listed options.                                                              Ariya_Khamvongsa_15-1621644489799.png


  4. Select the dashboard you would like to pin to. A pane will open to the right of the screen where you can select which dashboard to pin to. By default, the current dashboard you are on should be selected. If you want to copy to a dashboard that is shared with you, you will need edit permissions in order to pin to that dashboard.                                                    Ariya_Khamvongsa_12-1621644320236.png
