When you are signed in and looking at any given dashboard, you can know who is looking at the same dashboard as you are via a presence indicator, which displays avatars of users who have interacted with the dashboard recently. The default time frame is within the past 10 minutes. To see the user’s name, hover over the user’s avatar. The avatars come from Gravatar based on the user’s email.
When there are more active users on a dashboard than can fit within the presence indicator, click the +X icon. Doing so opens dashboard insights, which contains more details about recent user activity.
To change recent to something other than the past 10 minutes, edit the configuration file:
[analytics.views] # Set age for recent active users recent_users_age = 10m
