Setting Up Your Home Page

This topic includes the procedures for adding, changing, deleting, and positioning widgets on your Home page.


The following concepts apply to the Home page and its widgets:


Rows can group one or more widgets or panels. A row spans the full width of the page. Each row can include multiple widgets and panels. Initially, they position across the top of the row but begin to stack as you add more widgets.


Panels can contain one or more related widgets. Use a panel when you want to display a title over a widget. After adding a panel, you need to enter a title and add a column for each widget being included. Two or more widgets can be stacked within a column.


Widgets can display data or charts. They can be edited during or after setup to define their contents. For information on changing a widget's default settings, refer to the Adjust Widget Settings procedures.
