Charts that are created in the Custom Report Builder can be published as custom dashboards and shared within your organization. You can leverage the powerful visualizations within the Custom Report Builder to build your own visuals and add them to dashboards.
The charts are available from the Published Widgets category when adding widgets to the dashboard. The category only displays if you have created a report with a published widget, or a report with a published widget has been shared with you and you have permission to view the associated custom report.
Note: When configuring the Publish tab for a custom report, a widget can only be shared with specific users, and the option to share the widget will not be clickable if shared with an organizational unit (OU).

An organization has an analyst who creates custom reports. The analyst publishes widgets and builds dashboards. She shares the dashboards with managers, executives, directors, etc., who are not power users of the Custom Report Builder.
The users with whom she shares the dashboards can create their own custom dashboards by adding the published widgets without having to build a custom report, chart, and dashboard themselves.
