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.
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.
|Small widget (1:1)||Standard widget type|
|Large widget (2:1)||Typically used to show data visualization|
|Core widget||Displayed on the dashboard by default and displays platform functionality|
|Service widget||Must be actively added to the dashboard by the user|
Core widgets are displayed on the dashboard by default. They typically display platform functionality, such as maintenance events and support cases.
Service widgets must be added to the dashboard by a user. Users can add service widgets through a “Customize dashboard” menu.
