Making a New Dashboard

To make a new dashboard, first click the Dashboards module at the top of the page to navigate to the Dashboard.

If a default dashboard already exists, you will see it in this page. You can select a dashboard that already exists from the dropdown list in the top left by clicking on the active dashboard, or you can click "New" to start building your own custom dashboard.

Clicking on the "New" button will bring up the dashboard creation window.

From this window, you can specify the name of the dashboard, a simple description, and you can customize how many dashlets you want to display on the dashboard. Each of the three rows can have 1, 2, or 3 dashlets, organized into columns.

It is important to remember that once a dashboard has been created, you cannot change the number of dashlets.

Clicking the "Default Dashboard" checkbox at the bottom will make this new dashboard your default. This means that whenever you enter the Dashboards module, by default, this is the dashboard that will appear first.
