How to import a dashboard
Any dashboard that was previously exported can be imported into Apex. This creates a full dashboard, including its properties, layout, and widget selections, that existed when it was originally saved.
To import a dashboard:
1. In the web interface, click Configuration > Dashboard Library.
2. Click the import icon .
If you select a dashboard, this button becomes hidden. Click Discard to de-select a dashboard if this happens.
A file prompt appears in your web browser.
3. Locate a dashboard file (file extension .OAD) and upload it.
4. If the Import Conflict prompt appears, you must fix these the conflicts and click Finish Import.
 
You successfully imported a dashboard into Apex. Any widgets included in the dashboard were also imported and appear as user widgets.
