What is Dashboard?

The dashboard is by default the first tab you will see when you login to VisionFlow. It is intended to be used as a start page containing portlets that will help you to overview and organize your work tasks. 


There are several portlets, each containing information or functionality and these can be rearranged to suit your preferences.


The default layout is two columns in the proportion 67% - 33%. To change the layout of the dashboard - just select one of the options in the "Columns" drop-down list at the bottom of the dashboard. 


You can add a portlet by clicking on the "Select content.." menu at the bottom of the dashboard and then choose which portlet you want to add by check the box. 


There are three classes of portlets available:


  • Six standard portlets
  • Saved searches/filters
  • Charts


You can rearrange the portlets by dragging them in the dashboard tab. 


You can read more about the different kinds of portlets in the Misc/Portlets category.
