The Dashboard

yuuvis® RAD client 10.x »

The default yuuvis® RAD client dashboard shows the most important application information at a glance. In the header area, you will find the yuuvis® RAD bar with icons for the most frequently used features, such as the Main menu icon Main menu icon, the Search icon Search icon, the Create icon Create object icon, and the Start process icon Start process icon. You will also find the icons for the Favorites icon Favorites area, the In-tray iconIn-tray, the Inbox icon Inbox, the User documentation - iconUser documentation, and the settings menu on the yuuvis® RAD bar.

In the case of smaller monitors or browser windows (<600 pixels wide), the Favorites icon Favorites, In-tray iconIn-tray, Inbox icon Inbox and User documentation - iconUser documentation icons are hidden in order to better display the yuuvis® RAD bar.

The default dashboard displays the following information:

  • Unread messages
  • Objects to be filed
  • Search field for quick search
  • Saved searches
  • List of recently edited and created objects

Click the aforementioned elements to go to the corresponding linked areas or search forms. Certain areas of the dashboard are hidden, for instance, if there are no unread messages or saved searches. If you left-click the yuuvis® RAD logo while pressing Ctrl, a new tab will open with another yuuvis® RAD dashboard in your browser.

Dashboard Customization Options

The dashboard may differ from the above description as it can be customized by the company or by the specific user even.

There are different default features in yuuvis® RAD client that your administrator can adapt to fit the requirements of your company and for this reason are not available on the dashboard (see yuuvis® RAD client Modifications).

Users can customize the appearance directly on the dashboard and save different dashboards for user-specific purposes. The default dashboard can be edited by clicking the Edit widget icon Edit widget icon in the footer; however, it cannot be deleted or renamed. New dashboards are created by clicking the Create Dashboard - Icon Create dashboard icon in the footer and assigning a name to the dashboard, which cannot be longer than 50 characters.

Showing and Hiding the Dashboard Footer

The dashboard footer can be hidden and shown again. If you click the Hide dashboard configuration - icon Hide dashboard configuration icon at the bottom right of the dashboard, the footer will no longer be shown. To show the hidden footer again, click the Show dashboard configuration - icon Show dashboard configuration icon at the bottom right of the dashboard. The dashboard footer settings are saved when you exit the view.
