Hi there,

I created some Pivots and Dashboards...
All my graphics are presented as Inline Search on the Dashboards at the current time.

Question is: Should I converted it to Report type, and what is the reason to do it?

Reports are saved searches. Common reasons to convert is reusability in other dashboards or as a standalone report/alert, scheduling, acceleration, and general organization of your knowledge objects.
Common reasons to not convert - less pollution of your app's namespace from reports only used on one dashboard, speed of changes during dashboard development, and general laziness.
