Dashboards allow you to create useful pages for your end users that contain customized clusters of information, including Reports, start buttons, images, formatted text, and embedded elements.


The layout and complexity of data shown on a dashboard can be customized to suit the needs of individual users:

  • End users may require less complex and more user-friendly dashboards featuring simple reports of all tasks assigned to them, several start buttons for most frequently used applications, and a selection of links to useful pages and instructions.

  • Power users may require more elaborate dashboards containing multiple reports and various types of Views, providing them with detailed information on all activities in the system.


Each dashboard is built out of sections that can be stacked on top of each other. To add a section, click on the "+" icon on the left. There are 5 different dashboard layout options to choose from:

Section layout

For each dashboard column, you can change the vertical alignment of the embedded elements to position them on top or in the center of the column. You can place any number of elements in a column.


If you want to move an element to another column/section or arrange elements in a different order, hover over the element you want to move. After that, a vertical menu with three options will be displayed on the right. Click and hold the middle button in the menu to drag and drop the element to the desired location on the dashboard.
Click on the pencil icon and check the dedicated box to set the Custom margin for the element, i.e. to freely position it relative to other dashboard elements. A window will then appear where you can define the individual element margins by entering their values in pixels.

Element configuration

By going to the User privileges tab, you can decide whether the visibility of the dashboard will be Inherited from application or Custom (the dashboard will be visible only to the designated users.)
