If the mode is changed to Visualization, the data would be displayed differently as a chart.
If you select visualization as the mode on the report tab, you can change how the data is displayed on the Visualization tab. Use the radio buttons to select the type of chart.
When selecting the type of chart, it is important to think about what data you are displaying. For example, if the report selected contains data about the geography, you may want to select Geo Map or Google Map as the type.

To duplicate a dashboard, navigate to the dashboard listing screen and under Actions, click Clone.
