Issues with Dashboard Hover menu icon - it is missing!


I'm working through the Admin Beginner Module in Trailhead, and have come across an issue where I cannot view the Hover menu icon. However, I've already gone to the Reports and Dashboard seetings and checked "Enable Dashboard Component Snapshots", as well as going to Chatter/Feed Tracking and checked "Enable Feed Tracking" and all components for both Reports and Dashboards, but still don't have the Hover menu icon to be able to Follow or post a snapshot of by Dashboard component. Any thoughts?

I believe that you need to go to the Dashboard page itself to take a snapshot of it.

Hi Jessie,

You can take a snapshot of Dashboard from setup --- dashboards page itself.

I have the same problem. No hover icon in the Dashboard's setup pag, as well :/

solved the issue!
you have to enable feed tracking specifically for the dashboards section, then you can follow the component and only THEN does the hover option for snapshot sharing appear!

hope I could help you :)

Enable Feed Tracking for Dashboards! : Setup > Feed Tracking > Dashboard > Enable Feed Tracking
