Why can't my user see the Dashboard Snapshot after I add a home page layout to their profile?

Knowledge Article Number 000175132
Description I have changed the Home Page Layout for my user to reflect a Dashboard, but when they try to "Change My Display" the Home Tab is not an option under "Customize My Pages."
 
Resolution If you find that a System Administrator has added a Home Page Layout to a Profile that includes a Dashboard Snapshot, but the user is still unable to see a snapshot or change their display this is due to the Dashboard tab being hidden on the profile.

To edit the profile on the Original Profile Interface:

1. Your Name | Setup | Manage Users | Profiles
2. Select the profile you want to edit
3. On the profile detail page, click Edit
4. Under the Tab visibility settings, Change the Dashboard Tab from Tab hidden to either Default on or Default off

To edit the profile on the Enhance Profile User Interface:

1. Your Name | Setup | Manage Users | Profiles
2. Select the profile you want to edit
3. Under Apps, Select Object Settings
4. Select Dashboards under Object Name, Click Edit
5. Change the Tab Settings from Tab Hidden to Default On or Default Off
