Edit Dashboards Created by Different User (With Manage/Edit Permissions)

Operational Dashboards

Currently you cannot edit a dashboard if it was created by somebody else, even if you have Manage/Edit Dashboards permissions. The Knowledge Article on this topic states: ​"Note: If the "Edit" button appears for a dashboard the user didn't create, the "Insufficient Privileges" message will display when the user attempts to edit the dashboard." 

In this case, you can make all the edits without interruption, but when you try and save your changes, it will show you the 'Insufficient Privileges' message. 

​This means that it isn't possible to have a dashboard that mulltiple users can edit and update unless you have the 'View All Data' permission enabled for the profiles concerned. This does not work if there are any limitations on what different users should be able to see. 

It would be useful to be able to manage and edit individual dashboards jointly amongst users without having to give them permission to see all data.
