Dashboards are a collection of widgets that give you an overview of the reports and metrics you care about most. Dashboards let you monitor many metrics at once, so you can quickly check the health of your accounts or see correlations between different reports. Dashboards are easy to create, customize and share. To set up Your Dashboards in Google Analytics is easier than you think.
Shortcuts take custom reports to the next level. You can create shortcuts that include standard reports or custom reports. You can also include advanced segments and other modifications to the reports and the shortcut will load just the way you saved it.

Give it a descriptive name and click on the widgets you would like to include. Finally, click on “Add to Dashboard.”
