Customising the Dashboard

When you log into Orlo, you will be presented with the template screen shown below.

From here, the first step would be to name your dashboard. In the top-left hand corner of the screen, you can enter the name you wish to give your dashboard in this box.

After you have chosen a name, you must choose the layout you want your dashboard to have, from the four choices shown above. Once you have picked a layout, you should see several blue-dashed boxes, with the words "Add Widget" in the middle. In the example below, I have chosen the 33/33/33 option, to have three equally sized columns.

Clicking on the "Add Widget" button will open up the below screen, where you can add and edit the different types of widgets we have available. From the image below, you will see that you can add many different types of widgets, each having their own customisation options. These filters are the same ones that appear throughout the rest of Orlo. Each widget will have the option to add a title, which is highly recommended to be able to easily see which widget does what.

Once you have chosen your widget (and customised it if needed), clicking "Add Widget" in the bottom-right hand corner of the box will bring you back to your dashboard screen. You should then be able to see the widget you have added once it has loaded. You can minimise the widget, click the Spanner icon to open up the edit options for it, or click the X to remove the widget from your dashboard. 

You may wish to save your dashboard after each widget has been added, which you can do by clicking "Save Dashboard" in the top-right hand corner of your Dashboard edit screen. Unsaved changes will be lost if you become disconnected from Orlo for what ever reason. Clicking "Edit Dashboard" will bring you back to the screen to add more widgets.

Tip: If you are unable to click "Save Dashboard", you may have missed out a title for your dashboard. Orlo will not let you save a dashboard without it having a name.

After you have added a widget, another "Add Widget" button will appear below your new widget, so you can keep adding them into the same column if you want. On this screen, you can also click and drag the widgets to move them between columns and reposition them above or below each other.

Tip: Once added, you can minimise the widgets on the dashboard or refresh them. To edit/remove them, you will need to open the Dashboard Edit screen and click on the blue X in the top-right corner of the widget.

You can also create more than one dashboard and seamlessly switch between them. If you click on the "Manage" button at the top of the dashboard screen, you will see a list of your created dashboards and the option to create a new one. Clicking on a dashboard option will load it up.
