Dashboard widgets

A dashboard widget offers a summary of a platform’s functionality, status, or individual service. Widgets provide actionable information that helps the user quickly accomplish a task or track key metrics.

Each widget has a title bar and a content section. The title bar is standard for all widgets, but the content section varies depending on the type of widget.

Widget Terminology


The tile identifies the widget. Max characters: 23 (including spaces)

A title link directs users to a more complete view of the information summarized in the widget. The link’s content should be as specific as possible (e.g., “View resources” instead of “View all”). Max characters: 15


A call-to-action offers the user a quick action in the widget. The call-to action is optional and can incorporate a plus icon if appropriate. Max characters: 23


Dashboard widgets have two possible sizes, small and large. The height for both sizes is fixed at 310px. Neither widget is resizable.
