Add, Rename, Move or Delete Tabs

Tabs provide an organizational structure for your streams, much like tabs on filing folders. Up to 20 tabs can be added per dashboard, and each tab can host up to 10 streams.

Name and rename tabs according to their stream content to help you stay organized. You can also move tabs with drag-and-drop to change the layout of your dashboard.
