Is there a way to prevent users from creating dashboards

We have several user created dashboards with metrics we don't want customers to see that are shared with everyone. Is it possible to prevent non-administrators from creating dashboards at all?

You can't prevent users from creating Dashboards, but you can prevent them from being shared. Just edit the Global Permissions ( and make sure only the users / groups that you want have this ability.
