The dashboard is the first thing you'll see once you're logged in. The dashboard is set up by your administrator. It might have widgets like the Weather, My Tasks, and a Blog or Twitter feed. Use it to see information about your site at a glance and to keep track of competency-based tasks.
In this article, you'll learn:
- What the dashboard looks like.
- How to customize your dashboard.
- How to add widgets to your dashboard.

2 Customize your dashboard
Depending on how much flexibility your administrator allows, you can make customizations. These customizations only affect your own dashboard, not anyone else's.

- To move a widget, click the header area and drag it to where you want it to go.
- To remove your changes, point to the 3-dot icon and click Reset Dashboard.

Your administrator can update your dashboard. They can also reset it so all of your customizations are lost. You'll see a message on the dashboard if this happens.
3 Add widgets
