Consolidating unused elements into a group on a dashboard

When you create a group in a dashboard, any attribute elements not used in the group are grouped together. By default, these elements are displayed individually, but you can choose to consolidate the remaining elements into a group. The default name of the consolidated group is All Others.

In an element group, the group replaces the attribute elements that make up the group. Any remaining elements are considered unused and placed in the All Others group.
In a calculated group, the group does not replace the attribute elements that make up the group. All elements of the attribute used in the calculated group are considered unused and placed in the All Others group.

For examples of the consolidated group, see Replacing attribute elements with an element group on a dashboard and Creating a new element on a dashboard using a calculation.
