Dashboard Cards: How to Show Multiple Variations of the Same Card


Often we find ourselves having to run multiple reports to generate data that we need. We spend time trying to cipher through that information, condense it, and then evaluate it. Dashboard Cards in Bullhorn simplify that process for you by showing specific information in one centralized place – without having to deal with the hassle of reports. 

A couple of things to keep in mind when working with your Dashboard Cards in Bullhorn:

  • Each card functions the same. 
    • For specific information on each card and to inquire about what data is being pulled, you would navigate to the Bullhorn Community and type the name of the Dashboard Card into the Search. 
  • You can customize the cards with the “gear” icon.
    • If the “gear” icon is not available in the top right-hand corner of the card, then that card would not be customizable. 
  • Ease of access to the record information within the card by clicking on blue hyperlinks.
    • Depending on the card shown, the data is represented by number(s) and/or record information.
