Use the Dundas Dashboard Deployment Center to install add-ons that provide additional data visualizations, controls or functionality to an existing instance of Dundas Dashboard.

See Dundas Dashboard Add-ons for more details about supported and unsupported add-ons.

Tip: A plugin is the same as an add-on.

Installing Add-ons

Launch the Deployment Center, then click Add-Ons from the Overview screen. The Add-On Library screen is displayed.
