  9. Preview descriptive information about a visual artifact in grid view by hovering over the title until a tooltip appears.
  10. In Grid view, hover over the bottom right corner, and the icon changes to a blue (pencil/edit) icon. Click to open the dashboard, visual, or app in edit mode.

  14. Clicking Delete at the top deletes the selected items, after a confirmation.

    To delete a single item, click the (trash) that corresponds to it. Note that some items don't have the delete option: this is because they are linked visuals that appear in a dashboard.

  16. Note that list view exposes the ID of the visuals and dashboards, and also references the IDs of dashboards where the visuals appear.
