    what datasource do you want to import?
    what exactly are you trying to do? using the dashboard designer to create with existing widgets a dashboard?

    you need to create those widgets (charts etc.) first, before you can create a dashboard that includes those

    thanks for your reply
    actually i have tables in MySQL database and i want to make dashboard for specific columns in specific table

    actually i don't understand your words , " you need to create those widgets (charts etc.) first, before you can create a dashboard that includes those "

    i searched in dashboard documentation and what i found was charts already created using the samples , but i didn't know how these charts was created and i searched in all buttons after opening user console and i didn't reach anything.

    actually iam totally new to pentaho , so it's not clear yet to me

    Thanks again and hope i replied to you

    those charts were created separately, manually and not within the user console

    they were created using pentaho design studio and/or the community dashboard framework

    try to search for that stuff in the forums or on the wiki
