    I can add more controls when I am in edit; however when I try to save I get this error message "<Message>The dashboard Form XML contains more than the maximum allowed number of control elements: 6.</Message>"


    Is it possible that I can only have 6 charts on my dashboard?

  • My apologies Scott, I didn't actually try to save it. I can not see a way around the 6 chart limit I'm afraid.
