Accessing Your Dashboard Application
Access Applications Menu:
Hover over the navigation bar to the left of the dashboard and select ‘Dashboard’.
Understanding the Dashboard Navigation
The Dashboard app displays summaries from all of your applications through individual widgets. Each widget is separated into its own box within the page. You can identify each widget by the title in black, and the app icon located at the top-right corner of each box. The icon corresponds with the same icon for each application in the app drawer. The bolded text in the widget box provides you with an understanding of the metrics each widget displays.
1. Customizing Your Widget Display:
Some widgets come equipped with a button that displays three vertical lines. This button allows you to customize the data displayed on the widget by showing information for a specified period of time. Select a new period, and the widget will update accordingly.
2. Adjusting Your Dashboard Layout:
The Dashboard feature comes with an 'Edit' button located at the top-right corner, allowing you to personalize your dashboard experience.
Step-By-Step Guide to Editing Your Dashboard
1. Access Edit Mode:
Click on the 'Edit' button to enter the editor view.
2. Understand Your Screen:
The editor view splits the page into three sections: your currently displayed widgets, a widget preview, and a list of available applications.
3. Use the Preview and App Selector:
The preview section and the app selector are interconnected. The preview displays the available widgets for the selected application only. As you select new applications from the list, the preview will update with new widgets.
4. Customize Your Dashboard:
Widgets with a red '-' icon indicate that the widget is already part of your dashboard. Clicking this icon will remove it from the dashboard view. Unused widgets will display a green '+' icon. Clicking that icon will add it to your dashboard.
5. Rearrange Your Widgets:
After adding your desired widgets, you can rearrange them using the leftmost section. Click on a widget to drag and drop it above, below, left, or right of other widgets.
6. Save Your Changes:
Once you're satisfied with your dashboard layout, click on 'Save' located at the top-right corner.
