Customize your dashboard
Edit the dashboard
You can customize the content displayed on the Dashboard. You can delete and reorganize existing widgets and also add and configure new widgets. There is a dedicated Dashboard widget group containing widgets, which you use to customize the Dashboard page only. You cannot use these widgets on frontend pages. You can also add all other existing widgets to the Dashboard, such as Content widgets or Search widgets.
The Dashboard is a configurable backend page. To customize it, perform the following:
- In the main menu, click Administration » Backend Pages » OK, Continue.
- Expand Sitefinity CMS and Dashboard group pages.
- Click Dashboard page to open it for editing.
- Edit the dashboard the same way as you edit any other page.
The only difference is that you have dashboard-specific widgets.
The Dashboard widgets group contains widgets that you can use only on the Dashboard. You cannot use these widgets on frontend pages.
The following widgets are part of the Dashboard widget group:

To switch between different dashboard pages, change their order in the Backend Pages.
The first page under the group page is the one that opens by default.
