You can set it to Private to the owner. This will only grant access to the owner and admins to edit and view. 

There is also the option of Everyone. With this, all users of the account can access the dashboard. Click Edit and view to enable all users to do both, or you can click View only if you do not want everyone to have edit access.

3. A third option is to allow only specific teams and users to access the dashboard. Just like the previous option, you can click Edit and view to enable particular users to do both.

How to Manage Your Dashboards 

After creating your dashboards, you might want to review them from time to time, and this is possible on HubSpot. The process is similar to what you went through while creating the dashboard.

  • Default dashboard: Select Set default on the dialog and navigate back to Reports.
  • Delete dashboard: You can delete all reports on the dashboard by clicking Yes, delete

4. To edit who has access to your dashboard, select the Assigned and click on assignment permission; after this, select Edit access. 

5. Just like before, you can select who has access to this new dashboard. Just follow the same steps as mentioned earlier. 

6. After all, click Save. 

If you want to add your dashboard to favorites, then select the star icon on the reports list. Up to ten favorites can be added.

It is possible to follow up on the activities on your HubSpot dashboard if you want. Here are the steps on how to do this
