You can set up dashboards to show summary information related to your projects or for your organization overall.
To access your dashboards, you can either select the Dashboards tab or the Dashboards option on the User Menu.
You can create new dashboards from the Manage Dashboards grid. Click on Add from the toolbar.
Enter the dashboard name on the Create New Dashboard dialog. You can then choose to either keep our dashboard private or to share with other users or groups of users.
If you plan to share your dashboard, in the View Only field, select the users and/ or groups you wish to provide access to from the dropdown. Note that only owners can add and configure portlets, however once the dashboard is shared then any user can then take ownership of the dashboard.
Click on Save to create your new dashboard.
New dashboards are blank and ready for your to customize using the available portlets. Portlets can be dropped onto the dashboard and then moved around as required.
Portlets are accessed by clicking anywhere on the bar that stretches along the bottom, this will expand the Portlet selection area.
