With the release 9.0 MangoApps introduces dashboard in a widget-based model.
A lot of thought went into making the dashboard, a collection of various widget-based modules within MangoApps. Our main objective while designing the widget-based dashboard was to increase functionality and customizability.
The user benefits from using widgets in the following ways:
- Availability of rich controls (Text box, Images, RSS, Notes, External Source Integrator)
- Having consistent, versatile display of information
The dashboard offers a number of great new features. They are as follows:
Drag and Drop – From the user’s perspective, drag and drop involves choosing a widget, dragging the widget around on the dashboard, and dropping the widget on a new location. The mechanism is the same no matter what type of widget is being manipulated.
This features allows you to customize your dashboard. You can move widgets around and completely revamp your dashboard’s layout to your liking.
Resize – A resizing widget enables you to easily manipulate the size of content. The feature is ideal for users who do not need a full blown modules page. With the ability to resize available horizontally and vertically, it also makes the content more readable and appealing.
Intelligent height system – The increase in height widget automatically fetches more data. It’s an algorithm developed by the team which determines where there’s white space and then fills it in with relevant data.
Screen resolution – It doesn’t matter what the screen size is or the resolution you use — the dashboard automatically resizes according to the screen size. It doesn’t cut your data or information.
Various Layout – We all mess up and it is no crime that’s why we’ve introduced pre-configured layouts. Just click the layout you want for your dashboard and the template will rearrange all the widgets according.
Restore to default – In case the users are dissatisfied with the dashboard they have set for themselves they can always go back to the default setup.
The below screenshot gives you a sense of the various actions:
In addition to the features above, we have also enabled a feature that allows users to receive resources from a third party — which you can see in your dashboard with the help of External Source Integrator. With the External Source Integrator you may embed any secure source to the dashboard.
On top of that, we have provided more than 50+ widgets to help you get the best functionality for your domain in the personalized manner you want.
