Saved Reporting Dashboards can be accessed from the top of the Project Dashboard reporting page under Dashboards

Editing a dashboard
Once you have selected a Dashboard you can edit and apply different filters and/or change the Report Layout. Then you can select:

A dashboard can also be editied via the Edit button next to the dashboard title.
From here you can change the search criteria and make your updates using the dashboard editing dropdown menu.
