Creating Dashboards

Currently available search-based tile types include News, Dockets, Court Opinions, EDGAR, Transactional Precedents, People, Patents, All Legal, Law Reports Company Screener, and Notes.

You can name, move and resize (small, medium and large) the tiles on a Dashboard. You can set alerts from any of your tiles:


 

BIC Set Alert

 

Name the Dashboards and share them by email with any Bloomberg Law user at your organization:

 

 BIC Email DB1a

BIC Email DB

 

Shared Dashboards are edited only by the sender, not by the recipient(s). Any changes the sender makes to the Dashboard is viewable by a recipient the next time the recipient accesses or refreshes the Dashboard link.

 

Dashboards are refreshed automatically, so the most up-to-date results display first.

 

You can set the Business Intelligence Center or any one of your Dashboards as your homepage:
