What is an event dashboard
Event dashboards are pages containing a collection of custom charts that display event behavior over time.
For example you could create an event dashboard called "Message Behavior" and add charts pertaining to message clicks and opens, or create a dashboard called "Browse Behavior" that contains charts to visualize site activity.
For each chart you create, you are able to choose the event(s), add an audience filter and choose the type of chart to be displayed.
