Home Screen – Dashboards and Widgets

yuuvis® RAD 9.x »

By default, the yuuvis® RAD client home screen displays a dashboard that consists of pre-configured widgets.

Example: The Unread messages widget displays the number of unread messages and opens the inbox by clicking the widget. The widget will not be displayed if there are no unread messages.

The following widgets are included on the default dashboard:

  • Quick search

  • Recently edited and created objects

  • Objects to be filed

  • Unread messages

By default, users can create additional dashboards and edit the default dashboard: insert, delete, change, and position widgets. The dashboard configuration is saved for the specific user.

The configuration of the default dashboard is read from the dashboard.json file in the <service-manager-data>\webresource\public\client\assets\ directory.

You can create a dashboard.json file in the <service-manager-data>\webresource\resources\client\assets\ directory that overwrites the default configuration.
