As organisations and individuals become more familiar with the
value of dashboards, and as more dashboard development tools become
available, custom dashboards are becoming a common feature in many
They are often presented as the first page, or first tab in an
application to give an overall summary of all tabs or pages in the
application. In web applications, this is most often the landing
page of the information portal.
Apart from providing key data summary, the portlets or screen regions
on the dashboards are often used for navigation purposes, providing
deep link drill downs to the rest of the application.
This provides great usability and user value.
The data presented on the dashboard can be limited according to
the role privileges assigned to the log-in. There may also be capability
for users to configure portlets, in the same way as widgets are
used online, and gadgets using in desktop environments.
Examples of custom dashboards include:
- Share Trading Dashboards
