The Playlist is a special type of Dashboard that rotates through a list of Dashboards. A Playlist can be a great way to build situational awareness, or just show off your metrics to your team or visitors.

Since Grafana automatically scales Dashboards to any resolution they're perfect for big screens!

Configuring the Playlist

The Playlist can be accessed from the main Dashboard picker. Click the 'Playlist' button at the bottom of the picker to access the Playlist functionality.

Since the Playlist is basically a list of Dashboards, ensure that all the Dashboards you want to appear in your Playlist are added here. You can search Dashboards by name (or use a regular expression).

You can search Dashboards by name (or use a regular expression), and add them to your Playlist. By default, your starred dashboards will appear as candidates for the Playlist.
