Dashboard/View Search Widget

Since the question was brought up during SWUG NY I thought I would post this up.

The problem is how do you organize things when you have a large number of dashboards?

The list gets really long and it can be tedious to have to add them to all the applicable users toolbars.

This is a resource I use to make it so people can quickly find the dashboard they need without having to wade through a long list or clutter up the top menu bars too much.

Add this as a Custom Query resource on your users home page so they can navigate off to wherever else they want to go:

First Box

select top 1 'Enter the name of the view you are looking for.' as Message

from orion.nodes

order by nodeid

select

case when viewgroupname not like '' then (concat(viewgroupname,' - ', v.ViewTitle))

else Viewtitle

end as View

, concat('/Orion/SummaryView.aspx?ViewID=',v.viewid) as [_linkfor_View]

from orion.Views v

where v.viewtype like 'summary'

and (v.viewtitle like '%${SEARCH_STRING}%' or viewgroupname like '%${SEARCH_STRING}%')

order by v.ViewGroupName, v.ViewGroupPosition

This gives you something like this:
