Personalizing Your Dashboard
You can personalize the content
blocks that appear when you open a Private View of Dashboard. Content
blocks can contain launched reports, hyperlinks to reports, or hyperlinks
to Internet resources. The following are the types of content blocks:
Launch blocks. Contains
only one item, which is launched when you open Dashboard.
List blocks. Can
contain many items and display a list of hyperlinks to reports or
to Internet resources.
Folder blocks. Similar
to list blocks and contain the entire contents of a folder.
Output blocks. May
or may not contain information when Dashboard is launched. When
you run a report or access an Internet resource, the output block
refreshes and displays the new contents rather than open a separate browser
Tree blocks. Adds a tree, without the sidebar
frame, to a Public View or Group View page.
Watch List blocks. Adds
the ReportCaster Explorer interface filtered by Watch List reports.
Favorites blocks. Contains
a group of frequently accessed reports, charts, hyperlinks, and
any item type except Reporting Objects.
You can also create content pages that contain your content blocks,
or content pages that contain the ReportCaster Explorer interface
filtered by schedules or Library reports. For details, see Creating Dashboard Content. For information on the ReportCaster Explorer,
see the ReportCaster manual.
