Limit for dashboards run as the logged-in user.

While building new dashboards I encountered this error:

"Error: You reached the limit for dashboards run as the logged-in user."

I have run a report on all the Dashboards currently in use on our system  There are a total of 63 Dashboards - 60 are run as a specified user and the remaining 3 are set to run as the logged-in user. 

Is this correct? Is the limit of "run as" Dashboards really 3?

Yep it really is 3!

  • Your organization can have up to three dynamic dashboards.
  • You can't schedule refreshes for dynamic dashboards. They must be refreshed manually.

New limits are:
5 for Enterprise Edition
10 for Unlimited Edition
just in case you deploy Dashboards with ANT Migration Tool, and run into this error:
Check the <dashboardType> tag in the XML and make sure it's set to "SpecifiedUser".
Even if it is set to "MyTeamUser"  and you specify a <runningUser> tag, it will fail with the described error.

Melissa Frievalt, the CLICK HERE link in your response does not seem to bring me to the Idea, and when I search for "You reached the limit for dashboards run as the logged-in user",  no Ideas are found...only Questions are found...can you post the link to the idea so we can vote on it again...even 5 or 10 is not enough.

Why are limits applied to so many things that make it difficult to do what we need...?
