User dashboard

Wherever you are in Alfresco, clicking Home takes you to your user dashboard. The dashlets on this page give you a simple and up-to-date overview of what's been going on in the sites you're a member of.

You can customize your dashboard to display the information that interests you. Each dashlet you select is displayed on the dashboard. The available dashlets are:

My Sites
Displays the sites that you belong to
My Activities
Tracks the most recent activities in your sites
My Tasks
Displays your tasks and site invitations
My Documents
Tracks your content in all site libraries
My Profile
Displays a summary of your personal details
My Calendar
Displays upcoming events scheduled for your sites

You can resize most dashlets. To resize a dashlet click and drag on the bottom edge of the dashlet until it's the height you want. This is saved between Alfresco sessions.

Tip: If you hover over a dashlet header then a Add Event icon icon appears. Click it for an explanation of what the dashlet does. This stays open until you close it or navigate away from the dashboard.
