A dashboard is a collection of reports at the summary level providing you with an overview of what is happening, usually on a single page.
In Webtrends OnPremises (V9) there are a number out-of-the-box dashboards and you can build your own by selecting from a dropdown list of the reports available. Typically they show the Top 5 entities (e.g. Pages, Referrers or Campaigns) from each underlying report.
