Why is the data different in the GA dashboard when comparing to the actual report?

Hi all 

Why is the data in the google dashboards different from the actual reports.?

We have been working on a customer implementation and I noticed something that doesn't seem to make sense. 

 

Here is a post I did on Google + community - but haven't received a response ( but got lots of +1s)

 

- I used my shared dashboard and noticed that the events showing, are in the hundreds, but when I go into the actual report for the same data - the actual events are in the hundreds.. Is this a bug with the Dashboards?

This is using a Custom Dimension and Custom Metric?

Hi, @Grant K,

could you please provide some details on how your dashboard is set up and what are the dimensions and metrics in the report?
