Dashboard overview in Collaborate

The Dashboard provides a central landing page where a user can navigate to content areas and get up to speed on recent site activity. Users with access to more than one site will see the Dashboard when they login, whereas a user with access to only one site will automatically be taken to that site's landing page when they login, unless a System Notice has been added to the instance. In addition, based on how that instance of Collaborate has been configured, the user may not be given access to the Dashboard.

As of our April release, we have introduced customisable system dashboards. This will enable our users to create and edit system dashboards within Collaborate.

The information displayed comes from every site available to the user.

Tablet (Portrait) Version 

On a tablet using portrait mode, the Dashboard shows only the Recent Activity section and a truncated version of the Top Navigation Bar:

Smartphone Version

The smartphone version (like on an iPhone or Android phone) shows a truncated version of the Top Navigation Bar and the Activity Stream. To access the options menu, users can tap the icon.
